    A bit o Hurdle making:

    We have recently started making hurdles for our own use,i saw them at a garden center the other day and they were selling for 60 a piece! shame i havent got a limetless supply of them or i would be making them as a living! the kids have been joining in as part of they home school studies and have really enjoyed making them,heres a few pics:

    Good work, as always. What ever you put your hand to, you seem to do well. Look forward to sitting fireside with you one day. Really do.
