The Land Rover has reached a state of almost completed. The brakes are being bedded in and one edge of one patch welded up. Then as soon as the brakes start to pull straight it’ll be in for an MoT.
We had a little snow this weekend, only a little. They had more than 6 inches an hour east of us. I didn’t know that until this morning when I spoke with a colleague.
We visited Bracknell town centre, the Lexicon as it is known. I looked up the meeting of the word out of curiosity.
the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge.
So I imagine then that this is mean to suggest that Bracknell’s vocabulary is made up of chain stores with zero character? Thats a touch harsh, as there are not very many successful town centres without the big chains.
I can see that the architect had fun, I can appreciate their efforts.
Also we have so many of these spiders in our garden, I counted with ease 6 last night. While I was out in the garden the neighbours cat went into the shed.
Made some great progress on the Land Rover with some help. Got bits shotblasted, then galvanised, other parts just painted. Dragged it all down to Cornwall in the Volvo, one wing went via Hannah in the Mazda. Also visited the Great Dorset Steam Fair on the way down on the Thursday. then spent a few days building up the Land Rover.
We visited Cuckmere Valley for a picnic and a walk, then we continued onto see the coast at Seven Sisters. It was pouring with rain the whole time so we were pretty soggy, our coats being less than water proof. We decided to go into Eastbourne to see about buying new coats and by chance managed to find ourselves new coats.
I now have all the parts shot blasted and ready for hot dip galvanising.
It’s only taken a year and a bit (Since this post). But now we at least have grass laid over what has been a muddy patch for quite some time. Now though we just need some more English summer weather (rain) to keep the grass bedding in.
