Christmas Tree

We've revived the Christmas Day walk in Epping Forest after a gap of a couple of years.
We decided to look for the Lost Pond which we actually found really easily - then we got LOST ! It was quite exciting - we thought we knew the forest so well . . .

We also found a recent fire site where loads of birch had been cut. I just about managed to get it going again but forgot to take a photo.

Merry Christmas to all my Readers.

As you will no doubt have noticed, nothing has been happening here lately. There are several reasons for this :-

  • A general loss of interest in technology, computers, internet etc
  • Being ill
  • Nothing worth writing about has happened in the last month !

On Wednesday evening I went to the last meet of the year of the E.Herts Woodturners with my mate Bill Monroe. Five weeks ago Bill had a heart attack and had eight stents inserted - he looks really well on it.
Many sausage rolls and mince pies were munched. A big lump of oak was put on the lathe and folk could have a go at helping turn it into a big bowl.

Yesterday went down to Faversham to see my Dad & Velma. Had a great lunch at The Three Mariners at Oare. In the afternoon Frances, my little sister, came round and we all had a good chat and a laugh. My Dad had some bad news - he is going to have an op to remove some of his liver as they have found some cancer cells there . . .
