A Fraggle report~Path Head WaterMill

Last Thursday turned out to be a rare sunny day, and Sophie and I went on a trip to visit Path Head Mill at Blaydon.  The original Mill was a corn mill founded in 1730, but by 1974 was derelict with a 1930’s farmhouse the only survivor. In 1992 The Vale Mill Trust was founded, and the 18th century watermill has  been restored by them.  The work has been done mostly by volunteers, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds and have been given opportunities and training to help them develop life skills and employment. When we arrived we were…

The Annual Free Convention 2016

Had a great night out at Tynemouth Park Hotel last night, where the Annual Free convention was  held.  On the 40th anniversary of Paul Kossoff’s death, they had Terry Slesser from Backstreet Crawler as well as a Free & Backstreet Crawler tribute band from Japan, with Hideyuki Hide Kinoshita on guitar. They were excellent. Brill night and fun to be out with our pals Mick & Katie.

Day 77~366

Had a lovely day out in the sunshine with my pal Sophie. We went to visit Path Head water mill at Blaydon, then on to Gibside. I found lots of squares in Gibside but as we went out this evening too have not had time to process the pictures, so just did this one for now. Might have to do a Fraggle Report tomorrow 🙂

Day 75~366

A few years ago one of my hobbies was mosaics.  This was one of my early attempts, it’s a bit rustic and bonkers colours, in fact a bit rubbishy really, but I was chuffed with it at the time and gave it to Shelley to hang on her bathroom wall. Since she got her own home I’ve commandeered the bathroom so I can fit all of my girl stuff in it and not have to share it with bloke stuff 😀 and the mirror is still there.  It’s grown on me but I can’t say I blame her for leaving…

Day 74~366

Over to Cumbria again today, and with lovely sunshine and blue skies, I took my shot of the day on the way home and also on the way home stopped to see the mountains, (which I like better than the shot of the day, but mountains are not square 🙂 ) couldn’t resist a little B&W That’s all folks 🙂

Day 66~366

Only 300 days to go! 😀 Square cakes today, and a nice cuppa tea to go with. I only like the pink ones, so Phil will have to eat the rest. Cal stayed over  last night and we had fun. But Skye has been poorly, not eating and chucking up, we are hoping it’s just a glitch, a fur ball or something, she’s a little better today, but if no better tomorrow it’s off to the vet. 😦 Waiting to see the birds.
