  1. Merry Christmas from them Ideas!

    We had burglars!



    They sneaked in during the night and stole the oven door and set fire to it!



    Some time later...After Big Idea and I had discovered that someone had stolen all the chocolates...We think Mum did it, we found the wrappers and used them for wrapping a paddle we found in the garden for dad.

  2. But...But...But...I just wanna go boatin. Nov 2012 ....Breast hooks....

    Just noticed that Little Idea has painted the back of his breast hook and glued it on.

    Er....

    Cant help wondering if he actually let the paint dry before he glued it.

    Its screwed in place too....



    I think it might need a little trimming to get it to the right size.

    I suppose most people would cut it to size before they paint it.

    Just flipped it over. ...

  3. But...But...But...I just wanna go boatin. Nov 2012 ..Paddle testin 03....

    Saw this bird and realised it was standing on a piece of sunk boat. Felt thankful that it was there to show me where not to go.

    Until I hit another one.

    Little Ideas paddle....



    This is the smallest ...

    Finally....

    It took a week or so, but Ive had enough of sanding the double ended paddle.

    Its still not perfect, but its not too bad.

    Scales time once again...



    Its just under 1 kg.

    It just needs a dozen or so layers of varnish now.
