Two Years on .....
Today marks Two years since Marion and Myself were both made redundant
from our jobs on the same day.
What a fun day that was!
I couldn't make up my mind as to what pictures to put on,
so in the end I plumped for pics of work in progress today.
These Garlic pots needed the lids and bottoms turned.
I damaged the edge of on of them so I put a small handle on to cover the mark.

This Month it's Doug Fitch
Doug has been a great help to me over the past couple of years,

Thank you to Marion.
For supporting me every step of the way when I stated, I wasn't going to look for another job

I know it's a bit tough at the moment, but we have come so far in such a short

Sometime next week I will reach my 400th post
So to mark that occasion I'm going to have a jug up for grabs,
more info next week.
