This is a short week of sorts for me as I have tomorrow and Friday off from work, so today is busy for me trying to do all the bits and pieces I would normally have done over the next two days. Glad to say we got Woodcarving 117 off to repro ok. It"s a rather special one in that the winners of t ...

Guess what I was doing at the weekend? Apart from lovely autumnal river walks (my favourite) with a pack of dogs, we got most of the workshop/shed up! Hoorah!

The carvings on show were outstanding and there were so many great examples of the variety of feathered friends we share our pl ...

How was the weekend for you? Mine was a very mixed bag. I haven"t anything to grumble about. Some of it was very, very good, particularly the Greek restaurant in Lancing, but some of it was tedious, repetitive and long. This was all to do with the shed sitting at the bottom of the garden, curren ...

So yes as I mentioned earlier on in the week, it looks like I might be persuaded into helping with building a shed. it certainly looks very nice, well the picture does, so it will be interesting to see how the finished product will look. I think someone has been reading too avidly the Shed special W ...

I hope for those of you living in the UK, you all had enjoyable Bank Holiday weekends? The weather just about behaved itself as we closed summer for 2010. I was on the Isle of Wight camping with my little dog, dragging her on endless walks and excursions. I don"t think I have ever seen her so ti ...
