New enthusiasms
« on: October 25, 2016, 12:41:42 PM »
Isn't it great when you come across a new concept, a new idea, a new brand of clothing or footwear, a new food, a new restaurant, a new person, a new activity, a new feature on your latest car, a new function in the latest technology, a new anything that you fall in love with?

Tony and Carmella were so enthusiastic they were happy to pay 40 bucks for a small piece of uncooked fish flown from the other side of the world at their new-found restaurant. Isn't enthusiasm itself wonderful?

My latest is refrigerated oranges.

At breakfast at some B & B in Lytham, they served a fruit platter at breakfast. The orange segments had obviously come straight from the fridge. Not a fruit I really got enthusiastic about previously but straight out the fridge, they are wonderful. I'll have 4 or 5 a week nowadays.

What's your latest new-found enthusiasm?

I reckon i could beat that for boring Buc.

A few months ago me, the Mrs and the kids were in a nice restaurant down at Pitlochery and with our wine we got a big glass bottle of water which had came out a near freezing fridge. It had one of those Grolsch style caps attached and i don't know what it was about it but the water tasted better than the wine.

Bought myself one as soon as i got home and it gets presented on the dinner table every night along with supper. Water defo tastes better like that.

Word of warning tho... don't srink too much of the stuff or it could kill ye.  ;)

The wife spotted this in a window today so we bought it: -



Problem is, it doesn't fit with any of our rosewood and beech-stained pear wood stuff.

Sod it, it's too good not to make room for. Acacia wood from India. And best of all, less than a hunner quid.

Not to my taste at all, neither is the rug but I'm sure you'd feel the same about my mininmalist style, moder living room with clean lines, white walls and high gloss white furnature.

It does look very tactile though so I get the stroking and you dont get much in quality furnature for that sort of money these days.

Oh do shut up darling

No, I'm with you on minimalism. We're just waiting on planning permission to flatten a fifty year old hoose on a magic plot with North Sea views and building from scratch.

The rug will survive the transition as will the acacia piece. At least one of our new rooms will be dedicated to old wood. Collecting sleepers and all sorts of deadwood for the change. It's like we are collecting ingredients before designing the whole but lots of ideas taking shape.

What you looking to build? Are you going traditional or doing the whole grand designs thing?

There was a cracker of a house built a few weeks ago on it. The guy did wood bending and clad the whole house in wood he bent himself. Amazing to look at, doubt that would last long with a sea view though!

We have a vision of what we want. Starting to think this plot isn't big enough unless we can buy next door and that might become a possibility in the next couple of years. May end up putting up a kit house and moving on. Depends on the local economy and market.

At our age, we feel there's only one major build left in us. It all depends but lovely working on the possibilities.

Thats the one from Grand Designs, probably the nicest I've seen on that program.

We'll probably build one house for ourselves but not until a few years time. I'd want to manage it myself, best way I can think of to stop the missus going spend crazy so I'd need a year off.
