FIFA Crooks

The great thing about having your own blog,
is that it gives you a platform to say what you think.
Yesterday I was in the workshop listening to the England Bid
to host the football world cup in 2018
to Fifa on Radio 5 Live.
The presentation was Brilliant and I felt a real sense of pride
 & a lump in my throat,
They had done a brilliant job.
And to only get Two votes
was a Joke.
I shall say no more. Crooks!!!

On a more pleasant note, the snow has been falling here
for the past few days and this morning it is -11oc 
Still walking to the workshop through the Village is a real treat.

The tree outside the pub looks great. 
and the workshop looked a picture.

The Berries also looked great.

This was a worrying site,
my workshop windows looked frozen on the inside.

and sure enough they were and still are.
luckily I had left a small fan on on the Freeze setting
so it only cut in if it got below freezing inside.
The 10 tankards and six jugs I had put handles on yesterday
have survived the night.

Yes, it is nice to say what you think!

It's nice to see others have a rant on their blog, sometimes I feel so alone! What a lovely way to commute to work every morning, think of all of those sad people sitting in their cars, stuck in traffic. Your photos have put me in the holiday spirit for sure!

I like those tankards on the top shelves. Can I talk about handles, and attaching them, with you sometime? Drop me an email...

It isn't such a bad thing- all the revenue goes to FIFA, and all the taxpayers get to pay-seems to me that getting it wasn't such a big deal.

Wasn't Qatar's win a shock too? They don't have any stadiums and it's going to be 103F.
