Vikki has had a great few days on her Spoon Carving course with Robin Wood. On the first day she made some very nice tent pegs which did a good job with the strong winds we had. I was sent out during the night to check things were in place after a couple of pegs were pulled forward and rain was blown in during the first night of strong winds. The tent held up, despite our worries. It really is not nice watching the pole and the chimney move around so much and hearing them creaking so loudly!
Her spoons and spatulas are very nice indeed, and she did different styles to those that I have made.
We did need a trip back to Huddersfield to pick up some things we forgot. That was one of the reasons for starting at the Edale course, so if we forgot things it was a relatively short journey to get them.
I also forced my parents to come and visit on my dad’s birthday. They had a terrible trip down, but had good fun with their grandchildren J
Our holiday finishes tomorrow though. A visit to a play park and then Bletchley Park before going to our first WWOOF host, Lower Shaw farm.
Vikki and I are really looking forward to it now. It has been so long in the planning and now it starts. To quote my sister “Cool”!
