Picture of the Week #27

Standard

We are doing our kitchen new, from scratch.

We are still on the destroying part. 🙂 That is fun!

So we found 5 different wallpapers on different walls.

It must have been redecorated many times before.

Food for thought

If you have nothing 
except strong faith and a positive attitude,
you have much more than someone
who has everything
except strong faith and a positive attitude.
You can be happy with nothing,
whereas they can't be happy with anything.

What fun things have you done today?

Riddle solution

Standard

Thank you all for guessing 🙂

Indeed it was a boot scraper, well done my friends!

… to scrape the bottom and the top of dirty boots off

before you go into the house.

There are many old houses in Norwich which still have that next to the door!

Please see on the picture the front door and the scraper next to it!

Have a great weekend! ♥

Picture of the Week #14

Standard

We are staying with fireplaces this week,

as we found another beautiful fireplace in another room,

hidden behind a 50’s wooden board.

before and after

After cleaning and repainting, it will look great.

It is so much fun to discover new things and to restore them.

Food for thought

Most of the things you see, touch, and use today
were thought to be impossible as little as 10-20 years ago.
"Impossible" usually only means
"hasn't been done... " yet.
This one started to bloom……. with all this rain and wind we are having at the moment.

Good Bye Double Bass

Standard

It was time to say good bye to my Double Bass adventure.

It has been picked up again to travel back home.

What a great adventure and experience it was!

It is an amazing instrument and not that easy. It made me admire and respect the Bass players who so easily improvise.

I had such a great time learning it

I loved every minute of it.

I can only recommend,
if you want to try something you are passionate about...
go for it....
have fun,
you might love it,
and you will always remember it.

Here are some Blues I learnt with ‘You Tube’ backing tracks:

12 Bar Blues in C
Jazz Blues in F – Improvising
Bags’ Groove 140bpm

To finish off a riff

Hope you enjoyed the odd Blues.

I have recorded more so I can always listen and remember the time with my Double Bass fondly.

A big THANK YOU to my sister who made this adventure possible.
