November Blog


Hello Everybody,
Well it really has been a busy month for both me and Gary, we had a visit from our daughter Natalie, son in law Steve and our granddaughters Ara and Rylea. It was wonderful to see them, and we had a lovely time with them. Rylea made me a lovely owl and a bag for it to live in out of felting. This is a craft that I have never tried, but it takes some patience.
Below is a photograph of Rylea's owl sat on its bag.
Thank you Rylea I love it and and will treasure it forever!

I have had a busy month both studying for and sitting exams.
I have also started teaching English and Web design on a voluntary basis, which will help me gain experience  whilst working towards obtaining
my teaching qualifications.

Gary and I were lucky enough to have attended the Bloodhound speed runs at Newquay Airport on Saturday 28th October 2017,
it was absolutely exhilarating!
We loved every minute of it and we got to meet the team and the organizers. I was lucky enough to have my photograph taken with Richard Noble OBE the project director and with Andy Green OBE the driver, I also had a long chat with Ron Ayers MBE the Chief of Aerodynamics and Engineer.
All three of these amazing men signed my programme.
I would just like to say a huge big thank you to all the Bloodhound team we had a fab day.
Richard Noble reached 634.051 mph in the jet-powered Thrust2 in Nevada, USA, in 1983, He held the record for nearly 14 years.
Then, on 25 September 1997, at the same location, Andy Green reached 713.990 mph in the jet-propelled Thrust SSC, packed with a pair of Rolls-Royce Spey turbofan engines.
These are recorded in the Guinness World Records.
Below are the Photographs that Gary took of me with these legendary men when I was fortunate enough to have met them at Newquay Airport.
My hair was blowing all over the place, because it gets windy on the runway, but I didn't care it was so worth it! This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that we had no intention of missing.
These land speed trials at Newquay will go down into history.
My husband Gary was fortunate enough to have met Richard Noble OBE in the early 1980's and watched Richard as he carried out land speed trials at RAF Greenham Common in Thrust2.

Here are a couple of photographs of Thrapston which is a small town in Northamptonshire where we stayed overnight before our day at Santa Pod. It was early evening and Gary and Roy are looking into the water to see if they can see any fish.

On the 10th September 2017, Gary and I went to Santa Pod Raceway with Our son Dion, his Fiancee Faith and Gary's friend Roy.
We traveled up on the 9th and stayed overnight at Thrapson, so that we could get to Santa Pod first thing in the morning.
Here we all are at Santa Pod!
Sorry Roy, I should never have included this photo of you,
but it did make me laugh, you look amazing he he!
To be fair we have had such a laugh all weekend ♥
Picture
Here are a few of our photographs taken at Santa Pod before the racing we took a walk round the pits, and were honored to have met some of the racers. We got the chance to see the vehicles up close and personal!

Here are Dion and Faith watching the racing ....or at least trying to but I started snapping like the paparazzo, catching them unawares, I guess I asked for it, when Dion cheekily poked his tongue out at me!
Shortly after that Dion and Faith went round to the pits with their program and got it signed by several of the racers and crew and gave it to Gary and me as a surprise ♥ That was so thoughtful xx
Picture
Gary and I had a chat with "Rocket Ronnie", Ronnie Picardo who has been racing at Santa Pod since 1968. What a genuinely nice man, he was so sweet and amongst other things he told me all about the previous days events.

The Work so far!

Gary and I brought a property that needed substantial renovations both inside and out. Below is our pictorial diary of the work done so far towards the garden landscaping project.
This has been back breaking work and I cannot thank my wonderful husband enough for all the hard work he has put in to make our home comfortable ♥ you Gary xx
Before the work began
Picture
After we removed the hedge and replaced it with a fence, we decided to remove the rockery.
Picture
Picture
We were going to keep the tree, but unfortunately it was damaged on one side, so we decided to take it out.
Picture
We are going to lay this area to lawn, it is only going to be a temporary fix, because eventually we intend to lay a Large Patio.
This will be after we have rebuilt the veranda.
Picture
The job was not helped by the fact that there were a lot of roots under the rockery which had to be dug out.
