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.

New vice jaws

I bought some 20 mm by 25 mm bright bar, 0.5 m long. It came in the post, this impressed me, through the letter box. I did a quick drawing of what I was after and got it milled as counter boring the holes was going to be hard without a pillar drill or similar.

Easter Weekend

We went to Lauren and James’ on Friday. We all visited Reinham Hall which is a National Trust property where they had an Easter egg hunt. That after back at theirs we saw a fox in the back garden. Saturday I fitted out the shed a little more and reinforced the area of the bench where the 7 inch vice will attach. We spent Sunday in Portsmouth, the picture is of Old Portsmouth. Today (Monday) we went and visited Windlesham Arboretum, very pretty. During the afternoon and with Hannah’s help I sorted the garage out and discovered a wasp is busy making it her home also.
