Just as mighty oaks from little acorns grow, could this first trailer-load of logs at Dan’s new storage barn on the Cynllaith tributary of the mighty Afon Tanat be the beginning of major enterprise that will keep him in his old age?
I’ve entered Ironman Barcelona. The race is on Sunday, 5th October (I shall be in the water at 8.30am). The event is being held at Calella – a short coastal train ride from Barcelona. There’s more information here:
I hope I can count on your support!
Janet spent the day on a Dementia Friends stall at Beeston Carnival, recruiting supporters and raising interest in the Dementia Cafe starting in the autumn. It arises from an initiative in the Council, aiming to make Broxtowe “dementia-friendly”.
I know David’s been training a lot recently, but I didn’t realise he was so ambitious!
The agents report active interest in the house next door to No 16. It will require considerable modification to turn it back into “a substantial single residential dwelling for long term family living,” including separating it off from the Council car-park in which it now stands. Full details are available here.
There are some advantages in being able to determine who your neighbours are, especially after enjoying 36 years with quiet office users over the wall.
If the family could see some additional utility in owning and developing this “rare and interesting opportunity,” now is the time to draw up a business plan. Finance needn’t be a stumbling-block.
This my new log splitter, which enables me to split logs that are too big or too knotted to do with my smaller splitter or an axe. It also cuts at a very fast rate, drawing the wood into the spiral cone and a wedge underneath, a tool not to be taken lightly. I have also started improving the access to my new log shack, on the other side of the weak bridge. It is an idyllic setting to receive cordwood without the final leg of the journey up the steep hill and means that we have fewer larger vehicles coming up to Tyn-y-Waen.
Not too big, and not too small. We await the rambling rose, the inside light and a little heater for the autumn evenings!
I recently took part in the Outlaw Half middle distance triathlon from the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham. The distances covered were 1.2 miles of open water swimming, 56 miles on the bike and a half marathon of 13.1 miles. Having prepared for the last 8 months I was really pleased to come in at 5hrs, 52min and 11s. Many thanks to family and friends for supporting me in the build up to one of the biggest challenges I’ve undertaken!
