Of vans, Wickhams and wheels

3rd June 2018

I'd love to start by telling you how many copies of my novel, The Railway to Merhead got sold this week but I honestly don't know.

Of air and fuel tanks

13th May 2018

The trouble with Bank Holidays is that by the time I get around to writing this blog, so much has passed that I have difficulty remembering exactly what it was we did. I know, blame it on galloping dementia.

Of snow and souvenirs

11th February 2018

 

OK, first off, those of you who are looking for lots of pickies this week are going to be disappointed – for whatever reason the camera has had a quiet week.

Of rock salt and hydraulic oil

28th January 2018

Some weeks in this saga mark significant milestones. Others just little stepping stones. This week's is much in tune with the former, as Andrew became equipped to transport a proportion of his fleet (not the heavier ones, yet) on his own low-load trailer.

Of sore thumb and grazed forehead

21st January 2018

 

I like to start the blog with a few pithy phrases that give an air of detached insightfulness. Unfortunately I can't think of any.

Of anti-biotics and bus bars

14th January 2018

I decided to give Mr Strawbridge's antics a miss tonight. As a friend commented, he'd watched it last week but with gritted teeth. I knew exactly what he meant and I have no wish to return prematurely to my dentist.

Of pumps and bolts


3rd December 2017

December eh? Steph has stuck a calender under my nose and pointed out how few working days there are before Christmas, and how much Andrew and I keep trying to squeeze in.

Of various personages


12th November 2017

I looked over at the Darley hillside while shunting this afternoon. The trees were an attractive mix of greens and browns in the wintery sunshine, but the wind was chilling. Back at the Briddon Country Pile the central heating pump has died and the plumbers reckon a replacement is 2-3 days. Brrr.
