Weekend at home

We mostly spent a weekend at home this weekend. Saturday we went out and about, to Crowthorne for coffee and cake then to The Vyne (NT porperty) for an ice cream and a walk. Sunday Hannah picked up from plants for her pots and we found a load of snails that caused me much amusement.

Almost done

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.

Bracknell town centre

We visited Bracknell town centre, the Lexicon as it is known. I looked up the meeting of the word out of curiosity.

lexicon
ˈlɛksɪk(ə)n
noun
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.

Slow progress

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.
