Lots has happened since my last post. I've had a nasty dose of Man flu which knocked me out at the end of the week. I caught it from Luke and since then, both Hil and Joe have had it. I'm feeling much improved, the only thing to do is to try and sleep it off, so that's what I've been doing.
Here's some new stuff that's been going on.
Last Wednesday my old chum and Derby Boy, Simon Hancox became a new dad with the birth of little Edward. Many, many congratulations to him and his wife Julie.
On Saturday we listened to the radio to hear my local football team Exeter City, beat Rotherham to qualify for automatic promotion to League One. I wouldn't say I'm an avid football fan, I don't bother at all with the Premiership or even the national game, but I really enjoy going to watch City with Hil and the boys and have seen the club through some rough times, so it's fantastic that they've qualified for a new league.
The boys rang me up at the workshop when they got home from school this evening to say that there was a new born kitten under Joe's bed. We were too slow at getting Kipper to the vets to be spayed and before we knew it, she was pregnant. I rushed home and we found another tiny kitten, cold and apparently lifeless under Luke's bed. We managed to warm the little mite up and now it seems to be feeding alongside its sibling. See you in six weeks Dave and Sue ;)
Yesterday I went and collected my new car from my friend Jeff's place. It's fab, I love it, although I kept forgetting today and each time I saw it outside the workshop, I thought I'd got visitors. Here it is parked in front of my new sheds. I ordered the sheets for the roof today, so far the sheds have half a roof, no floors, three walls and hanging baskets. Maybe not the conventional approach to building, but I like doing it this way.
And finally, new pots at last. Ages since I made any of those. It was a struggle to get going, more pots tomorrow.
