Yup! After an anxious few weeks and two years in the planning, I am very ready to take up occupation. I want you with me as I develop and build my creative workspace. The two cleaning specialists just left this evening following the builders handover and did a sterling job following four weeks of an […]
…George had one minute seemed fine and the next stormed out the double doors in an almighty thrust of energy fuelled by his anger saying nothing at all to anyone and yet by action saying everything. In three bounds he reached his truck and spun a donut before a tail spinner whipped his trail in […]

In need of a safe, inconspicuous spot to keep a spare gate key, I made this fake nesting box. It could be a permanent nesting site for cavity nesters too, with a little modification. Though I have never forgotten or lost my keys in all my 68 years, things could one day change. A Masters […]
