Hmmmm.... I wonder if someone is trying to tell me something or that my family have finally twigged my prezzie preferences.

1 x Bottle Tomatin 12 year old.
1 x Bottle Cardhu Gold Reserve
2 x bottles Jack Daniels
1 x bottle M&S Port (said to be excellent; haven't had a glass of port for years)
Assorted brands of Sauvignon Blanc - all Marlborough.

Shame I was driving yesterday! 4 x bottles Becks Blue...

...spent Christmas with the wife and a meal, very quiet as first year all 3 step children went to their father's, big of him after 14 years. Anyway, we got ourselves tickets for Rock against Cancer in All Cannings in May, and as it turns out a possible trip to Vancouver island in June/July to welcome a first grandchild for us from my lad and his wife, dogs  enjoyed a run on Brean Beach and thats about it, very quiet. Wishing you all a healthy and prosperous New Year in 2018. :-))

A small but beautifully formed little thing , a miniature but fully functioning low angle block plane with Norris style adjustment. Made in Canada by Veritas, perfect for truing up those small wood pieces. Only 2 1/4" in length





Love it :-))   want one  :-)

Would have been more exciting but unfortunately not. ;)
It had a small towel, some coffee, a  Santa hat, some led lights, a torch, some sweets and a pen knife card.
And of course the box!
The coffee was nice! :-))

Have a full set as well, my thumb is healing from a run in with one of the chisels :). They are available from Lee Valley in Canada.
Santa brought me a motor kit for paper airplanes that you control with your phone. lol

Santa made my camera work again by magic (seriously, I did not take it to be repaired, it just started working again  %%     ) so I got some brass stock to make boatey bits with, a Drill sharpener plus slippers ( I am over forty now you know!) pullovers, Gin, a book on Gin, Sugared almonds, a CD by Mac Demarco and a book on the Russian motor industry.

I don't trust my family yet to buy model boat items without close supervision so I was pleased with this stash.

Happy Christmas and all that chaps.

just been digging my 35mm slides out, and the one I talk about could probably be me, because the guy beyond me with the shades on, was a good friend pete sullivan who I rode bikes with.........the guy to his left with the pointed face was a mate of his, who just loved a scrap, and went to live in Perth, and the young short lady to the left on pic of the lady in front of "me", forget her name was a friend of the gang, and her father was the governor of Christmas island, and she lived in the mansion they had on her own in Canberra.......never seen that photo, but from the angle we were looking......well, the rest of the crowd, not me was taken from the left of the stage............and was early evening when Kevin Borich was on, before Little River Band as it was still lovely sunshine...................god knows where you found that.


and we were stood on the right side of the stage........so quite possible indeed.
