Of drills and Avonsides

We made good progress on RS8 this week, not so elsewhere. But do read on.

Of leaks and dribbles

21st October 2018

Hullo again. Off we go wth the usual mixture of plans that go awry, achievements that may not have been what we first intended but progress all the same.

Of welding and Storm Callum

14th October 2018

Hullo again. Are you watching Channel 5's 'railway evenings' on Fridays? Do you find yourself exasperated by the Model Railway Challenge? You're not alone...

Of auctions and such

30th September 2018

(Sigh). So is the summer over? It's my birthday in less than 2 weeks and that marks for me the descent into winter. Yesterday I had to scrape the windscreen before setting off. Yes, I think I must be feeling depressed.

Of visitors and cameras

19th August 2018

A slightly briefer report this week, Steph's away at our daughters so on my return from the shed I had first to complete plant watering and cooking before even thinking about blog composition.

Of thinking and spraying

12th August 2018

You just cannot underestimate the power of the written word. Only last week I declared my dissatisfaction with the on-going heat and look! It's been raining today, we've had to have the lights on in the shed and I nearly took a sweater down with me. So, what if I declare that this week I'll win the lottery? Aah, hang on, I've seen a snag in that. I don't play.

Of water pipes and bird boxes

5th August 2018

Welcome to August. No you, are, I assure you: I don't want it if it's going to stay this hot.
