Decided to abandon my planned theme for the week and go back to a project I had started for Slimming World. This is an information board about Flexible Syns, and will hopefully be a useful little extra for us all to enjoy at group.
I have made things today, and I had a lot of fun doing it. However, having failed to get a decent shot of the things I’ve made and at the same time realising how crappy they are, I think they’ll stay hidden for the time being. If I’m going to give you people a Fimo Space Hopper and a Fimo Bod, they should be good. These aren’t. But I had a larf doing it.
So, to compensate for the lack of anything decent from me for the second day of my retro week, please enjoy this little YouTube gem, featuring the yellow frocked b*stard himself:
Back in the day The Capstone was where all the swingers and hip cats hung out.
Meanwhile, in reality, Capstone Restaurant is in Ilfracombe and has this fab old sign which inspired me to knock this up for kicking off the third week of Thing A Day… Retro Week!
And, before the Pedant Alliance come after me with sticks I should point out that the Grocer’s Apostrophes are intentional.
We’ve lived here in Devon for over a year and I’m still bowled over by the beauty of the place. Moving from a fairly nondescript suburban housing development where the view was just more of the same houses to, well, this:
It’s incredible. I’ve spent a great deal of time staring at this view open-mouthed. I still can’t believe we live here.
Enough of playing with old photos – time for some new ones. Here are two words you see a great deal around Devon – “Tea Gardens” – and they’re always enjoyable places to sit back, relax, and enjoy a cuppa (when the weather’s nice).
This particular Tea Garden is at one of our regular stops – Mad Hatter’s Restaurant in Tiverton. Best coffee in town.
Here we are then at the start of the 2nd themed “Thing A Day” week, and as mentioned in previous posts, this time the theme is Devon. To start things off, a photogrid featuring my delightful hubster as he shoots his way around the wonderful county we call home. Most of these were taken in or around Tiverton, but there’s also shots from Sidmouth and the North Coast.
And since both of us are now off work for a week (yay!), I’ll be taking the opportunity to dust down the D40 and get snapping. There’s never any shortage of great photo opportunities around here, even the pigeons outside our flat seem to be ready for their close-up.
Meanwhile, emberlexi‘s been busy making books… a lovely little mushroom journal.
