Yes it's back ....

The power that is...and no it has not been off that long. LOL

So this was my power pole

Such a lovely power pole. It had been doing its job for so many years, now it was going to be replaced by a better pole, a younger pole, a better looking pole (you know how it goes when you get a little old)

So one minute (or a few) it was there, THEN...

It was time to say goodbye. So I was thinking that this new pole was not quite right. It didn't look like it would do the job well, or will it?

It is red, so maybe a good colour? And very useful for hanging my quilts on. Yes I can see it now, quilts hanging on the ladder. How lovely. But hang on, I noticed that this ladder/pole is being supported by a rope from my tree. Hmmm .... nope, I am not thinking this is good and all those wires hanging down over my gate. How am I suppose to get out to go fabric shopping? Yip, I am thinking the hubby had something to do with this.

No wait ... ... there is a new pole and here it is.

Can you see the difference? Go on, have another look. I'll wait while you look back at the first 2 photos of the old pole.
This is Chloe and Max, they are checking out the new pole too from the back of hubby's 4x4

No, you don't see anything different? Did you have a good look?

Still see nothing? Neither did I. So I had to ask that lovely man as to what was new and all it was, was the porcelain needed to be replaced for the wiring to go around the top of the pole. Yip, even Chloe and Max was stunned

See, I have such an exciting life.
Maybe I could share another one of my stories with you again soon

Till next time,
Happy stitching

Cutting Off the Power

How rude, I have been given less than 20mins to do this. I have been told that they are cutting off my power in 20mins. No it is not because I have not paid my power bill!! They are digging up our street to put in new sewer pipes in and the power company thought it was a great time to up date our power system. So power off today and tomorrow. Back on for Sunday and off again on Monday. What's a girl to do? GO SHOPPING YEAH......

Any way, DD3 left last Sunday for her school European trip. She is having a lovely time and today leaves Florance and heads to Rome where she will be for 4 days. Lucky girl. But of course I had to make her a bag big enough for all her shopping. What do you think? Yes the only photo I could get was after she had packed it to take it on the plane as her carry on.

And of course today is the 9th so I must very quickly show you my next block for Pond House

Got to go, the power guy is wagging his finger at me.

Till next time,
Happy Stitiching
