The days are hot and dry and we are taking things steadily..enjoy each day we have.
I was fortunate to sell an expensive pair of handlebars by putting them on the "grapevine"...and by word of mouth, a friend who is a coach has bought them for one of his riders to use. He was willing to pay a good price (still a decent bargain) plus no website fees for selling...win win?!
They went off today in the post.
I also heard from Daccordi, an Italian maker of beautiful frames...that yes, the frame I have to sell is one of theirs from about 1985 (they didn't start dating them until a couple of years later..although they have been building frames since 1937!) It is a pretty frame..and a small frame is the test of a good builder..no room for mistakes!
The weather is gradually getting hotter..so after sorting the plant pots ( and putting some out at the front with a sign saying Free!) I put some shading in the greenhouse after moving plants to the cooler polytunnel.
The shading is also keeping it warmer at night...so a smaller temperature variation.
And a rack for the pots is in construction...I design it...Pirate has to work out how to make it!!!!
