Laning Arborfeild

I fitted the hood sticks and put the soft top on. These are the aluminium brackets that I have made using rivnuts.

I went out laning today for a few hours:

I came across a ford, that has warning sign saying something like “Ford only passable in low water conditions”. Sure enough the water was about 0.7 m deep. I drove in until my foot well was very close to getting wet inside, at which point I reversed out. I didn’t fancy drowning the land rover at night.

That small brown toad stool that I posted a picture of the other week. Well it grew, as did the little red and white one, though that one lost it’s colour a little.

 There was a pretty morning sky last week at work, I took this from the landing outside the office.


The cat pulled some funny faces and I happened to be trying to get an awesome picture of him roaring.

A rusty grizzly, no miss spelling or bad grammar at all. A grizzly is a type of very course screen using for separating large rocks from smaller ones.


Northern lights by Craig

When I travelled to Kiruna I landed to see the aurora, I just got 10 photos of black on my phone but Craig did better.DSC_0349.JPG


The photo’s are good, but far from realistic, the lights are more white than green, the ribbon like shape is more deinfed and crisp than the pictures shows too. the bottom edge of the lights were actually glowing red, which I have not seen before. I was told by someone that they have been experiencing these very extreme lights for a month or so now.

Various bits and bobs

Last week I finally diagnosed and fixed the tinny noise that the land rover develop while in Wales, the exhaust had come lose at the joint with the manifold. The brass bolts that I’d used made life easy as they’ve not corroded as steel ones would have done.

Put some glass blocks in the wall between the utility and the hall way. Hannah’s idea which we’ve now put into practice.

We have a whole load of mushrooms and toadstools coming up in our garden.

Today we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving. We had Hannah’s family up for the day, Hannah cooked turkey with all the trimmings, she made three options for desert and even made butter tarts, that were brilliant. We went for a walk at South Hill Park;
