The Amazing Degree Show

Yes! His bench can take a whole family safely! even though it looks fragile. Matt is taking the Bench & 1 Hat & Coat Stand to the New Designers Show in London next week as he was selected to exhibit there. Some scenes from the show! A few things that caught my eye & of course what Matt did too!

Matt has a great day!

Matthew's Graduation Day. We have had a fantastic day starting with the Graduation, then lunch out at the Ferry Boat Inn at Helford, followed by a walk down through woodland at Durgan to an idylic beach on the Helford river. Matt swam in his boxers! He was loving the feeling of being free from College! We had a B.B.Q. at home for tea then off to the private veiwing of all that hard work.

If you look very carefully round the centre of this photo you may see a Basking Shark's fins. ( click on pic to bring it up larger)

The public has been here in shoals to watch the antics of up to 10 of these Sharks. They have been here in the bay for a few days now, there must be a rich supply of Plancton here.

Baby Rings Bells!

I think this is an amazing video on my friend's grandsons blog. Jack Higby is destined to ring his first peal before he is 2, I should think. Matthew, Jack's Dad, is a few years older than my sons & was always absorbed in anything to do with bells. He built a mini ring in their garage, when he was a teenager with his Dad as supporting engineer & with the encouragment of the local ringers at Chilcompton he took this to lots of shows; soon he began to get quite a few orders. From there on he has built himself a thriving business around all things that RING!!! So here is little Jack just 6 months old on a mini ring.

The shed roof Rob sorted out last summer is doing well. I still haven't planted out some lovely plants or tidied up properly and Owen Bunza Rabbit has sampled a few of the best of those new plants.... But we do love living here it is great!
