A Week in the Life

In a bit of a whirl lately.

This time last week we'd just come back from Yorkshire.  The guy on the pitch next to us at the Driffield Show had this 'ossgine...and has a farm at Kirkheaton where my grandfather lived.

We had a great time walking on the beach and paddling at Fraisethorpe...

 Arranged to have the medieval stool picked up in the car park of Driffield Rugby Club...
Walter delighted with his birthday present.

 Mark Rickwood came on Monday and made the parts for a frame stool which we'll put together in a month or so.  He's moving to The Golden Valley in Herefordshire so will be among some illustrious company in a beautiful part of the country.

Tuesday we went up to Norfolk to demonstrate at the Sandringham Flower Show.  These rather interesting structures were in one of the show gardens...
...could easily turn those on the pole lathe?

Camilla gave me a nice little wave as she and Charles drove round the show in a carriage.

On Saturday we're off to The Linslade Canal Festival - a great little event with some good demonstrators that I always look forward to.
