What are you doing today ?
« on: July 17, 2011, 02:40:31 PM »
It's a miserable day down here in Cornwall - wet and windy so I'm spending the afternoon constructing farmland with fields and granite "Cornish Hedges".
Cornish Hedges typically are quite ancient and surround fields/roadsides in Cornwall. They are loose built granite walls that are covered in vegetation. I'm using Skaledale granite walls rolled in scenic scatter material (green) - looks quite realistic.
What are others up to today ?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Not a lot really as it's raining Datsun cogs up here. Have just watched the MotoGP from Germany and thought I'd catch up on posts while working up the right frame of mind for a pressing engagement with the ironing board :(

Getting closer and closer to my move back to the UK.. today.. getting final vaccinations for the cat (she flies out tomorrow evening), sorting rubbish in the basement and *hopefully* selling my car (fingers crossed!)

Damn.. this moving business is way more work than work!

Don't forget to put your winter woolies and brolly in your carry on luggage.

I've just watched the last two episodes of Eddie Stobart that were on tv, and have just popped on here to make sure that you trouble makers are behaving. ;)

In E-Bay parlance, a 'four second snipe' is where one awaits the end of an auction with 4 seconds to spare before putting on a bid, thus winning it due to any rival bidders not having sufficient time to raise their own bids, hence sniping the auction.

Been to work (briefly) to prepare for tomorrow, went to the stores local dump with some bits and "retrieved" a mac laptop, spent the afternoon dipping in and out of here / reading / snoozing. Out tonight to a regular evening class. Pretty good for a wet Sunday in Belfast  :thumbsup:

Today is a good day for me, I finally got rid of all the PA gear that belongs to our country band out of my train shed so today I will go and organize my work space back to what it should be, may even do a bit to the layout while I am out there but its Oh so cold and down to 18 degrees C.
Keep on Smiling
