Cartrefi Redwood Homes

Section 162 of the Highway Code says that before overtaking you should make sure the road is sufficiently clear ahead...

Section 163 says that you should give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car...

Is this driver following either of these rules?

Spring onions!

Check out the size of these monsters I got in my veg box yesterday -- have included the apple for scale -- yum!  So much better than the anaemic trimmed things in the supermarket...!

Y Tywydd! Y Poeth!

What on earth are we looking at a photo of you might well ask...  This was a difficult thing to try to photograph!

When I went to do my hair this morning, I took the top off my coconut oil, and my initial thought (not a morning person!) was that somebody had poured some water into my tub of coconut oil.  Of course, this was completely illogical, and then eventually I realised that at some temperature, it must become a liquid, because it melts when I rub it in my hands...  According to Wikipedia, coconut oil melts at 76 °F -- so now we know how hot it was in my bathroom overnight!!!

Some number of years ago now, my friend J gave me an early 1970s salad spinner.  It's worked well over the years, but it is made of plastic, and, as everybody knows, once things made of plastic break, they are only fit for the bin.  Plastic is the great un-repairable substance...

So imagine my great delight on Saturday to come across this lovely unbreakable vintage salad shaker -- I will never need to buy another one as long as I live -- I just have to hope it's not raining when I want to wash my salad...  :)

Bike for sale

Have bought a new (to me) bike -- photos to follow later -- in the meantime, the old one must go...  Nothing wrong with it, just too small for my body!  I rode it today after riding the new one for the last two weeks and it suddenly feels SO small!!!  Anybody interested?

Fleeting archaeology

In between the old plaster coming off and the new lime render going on, we get a brief glimpse which shows that my house did in fact used to be pink once upon a time...

Am very much looking forward to how much cooler it should be this summer now that it will be insulated -- this room has been quite the oven on a sunny summer day...
