I have had a very productive day down at the GMC workshop with our Anthony and Mr Steve Bisco and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Steve came down to show us his latest Grinling Gibbons style masterpiece and to get it photographed for a possible front cover in the near future. It is very very beautiful an ...

My weekly saga with the shed/workshop at the bottom of my garden has taken giant steps forward at last. The weekend was spent putting the roof on, felting, and putting the floorboards down, taking them up again as they were upside down, and starting over again the right way! We all make mistakes fro ...

Got to come clean with you all. I had last Thursday off not to get on with the shed/workshop or DIY projects but because I had a special appointment booked. I had myself a driving test and kept it quiet in case I failed. Happily, I passed (3rd time lucky, but 1st time in six years) and can pootle al ...
