Been up to all sorts of bits & pieces. Theo constructed this pot belly stove of sorts from an old gas bottle & it now resides in the shed, complete with chimney thru the roof. It is really very nice and warm in there with the stove going. Theo works on stuff & I sit in a chair and read a book:)
And here is my new PINK kitchen baby, while Theo demonstrates the tastiness of things it helps to make:). It was a wedding present from my Dad & Sharon.
This was all part of several recent cooking frenzies ;)
All very belly- and freezer-filling.
And here's Ainsley and Simon, at their recent wedding :)
And here's Theo & I, too :)
Now Whroo. Always entertaining. With our broken handbrake, we had to resort to wedging rocks under the back car tyres;)
Someone suddenly decided the main mine was unsafe & decided to fence it off. Sort of.
There was some drama when a young man and three females (two of them from The City) went missing down a mine shaft for two hours. A large crowd of friends and family gathered atop the shaft's dark maw, two brave would-be rescuers went down the rope after them (yes, one of them was Theo), calls to the SES were narrowly averted, someone produced climbing gear and the would-be explorers were found returning safe & sound - although they apparently needed some help getting out of there. There were rumours of hanky panky, amongst the youngsters, but I think it unlikely considering the people involved ;)
Here's the trio of girls, and one of the rescuers, and the procession back home :).
