I'm here because it's a place where I want to be.

What do I do with my life - still pondering that, keep exploring the possibilities I suppose...

I do have another more personal moblog Vivupclose

Take a look at my daughter Beth's website...

food for thought...

Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts. -Leo Rosten, author (1908-1997)

We think caged birds sing, when indeed they cry. -John Webster, playwright (c. 1580-1634)

There are two kinds of light -- the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures. -James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. -John Updike, writer (1932-2009)

Some people become so expert at reading between the lines they don't read the lines. -Margaret Millar, novelist (1915-1994)

There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest. -Elie Wiesel, writer, Nobel laureate (b. 1928)

a mexican treat - Knaresborough

Beth's 'old' driving instructor decided on a change of direction and invested in this restaurant - there is also a cafe. The restaurant was actually closedbut Carolina was so pleased to see Beth that she offerd us a meal off the restaurant menu - that starter which we shared was amazing!

The last pic is of the cafe/coffee bar/ice cream parlour which fronts on to the street we sat in an atrium at the rear but Carolina showed us the restaurant which was spacious and inviting.

Valley Gardens Harrogate

What special places municipal parks are! Beth was at a wedding on my birthday so we met in Harrogate on the Monday - chose paint for my bedroom, had a sandwich and coffee at a 'mod' cafe then walked around the gardens

My 69th!

(viewed 357 times)
On my birthday I had 3 friends over and with Helen and under the tuition of Jo whitehead (https://www.facebook.com/Glassprimitif?fref=nf)
We made light catchers and coasters. I had bought the kiln off her in 2012 after doing a day's course which I had loved, but due to Alan's illness and death, I had never taken delivery. I decided that My birthday would be a good time. The kiln is very small though max 1 lightcatcher and 2 coasters, also you need to be home for about 5 hours to switch it up and down and you can't do it when your electrician is constantly working on your electrics so progress has been slow, but these are the completed firings, will take a more detailed look later.

On days like this...

I feel privileged to live where I do

and that my children had the freedom to play and explore that these children have.

Not all was good, not all is good but I am grateful for the things that were and the things that are.

And now for the kitchen!

(viewed 294 times)
The end of an era - have 'improved' my kitchen over the past few years I know but was still based on mfi units H and I built 15+ years ago and it was very make do and mend - no more my friends - though stripping it back to the stone wasn't the plan - it just happened!
The last pic is looking down where the cellar stairs were.
The second pic is the window where the sink was the door is locking access to the hole where the stairs were!
The loose stones are no problem - outside walls all good so that is all that matters they tell me.
