I've been meaning to catalogue the delights of our place - like the doors blog in September.

The structures and materials are a source of intrigue and delight; the construction, wear and decay has left a unique record of place.

This is hopefully just an early montage of what it means to me.


On Tuesday evening we had torrential rain - all night, We woke to a river running through the front garden - and into the kitchen. It's not that there is any work done to the house as yet, but it still is scary to see even more potential damage. 

The water was flowing from the road - running down like a river. 

Nothing to do but get stuck in and try to divert the water away form the house, and into the drains.

An hour of soaking, cold work and all was well - and still not as bad as barrowing stones up the Trassey Lane!

Pictures a bit burred - it was v. early and I was feeling a bit blurred myself!

In Through The Front Door!

The river at the bottom of our filed - in full flood

Children In Need

Well done to all of Elaine's Helen O'Grady Drama Academy Studio stars who raised £442 for Children In Need this week.

We were taking our part - wearing the spots!

Elaine, Eleanor and Kate: Ready for action!

I've got my Pudsey!

It's been a long, happy day
