Mystery Object. Made of wood. Measures one foot by eleven inches, and is probably about a hundred and fifty years old. Would probably have been referred to as treen in its day - That is - made of wood - or tree en. Clue - would probably have been supplied as a set of four when new.
Going to leave this for a day or so now - so that everyone can have a guess (probably a soppy one- mine would have been, only I've seen them before, and happen to know what they are - tee hee !!!) No guesses allowed by my senior daughter, as she's having lunch with us today, and I've shown her the item and told her what it is.

Young tree sparrow (I think). Son Jonathon has very kindly spent the day with us, terminating it by doing his usual trick of forcing the computer to return to its duties (by magic of course). I think the above photo is of a young tree sparrow (but don't put any serious bets on this, because I'm not sure).

Just been clearing out the garage and found the above illustrated single handed wall clock- got a good deal of character and a ten inch dial, of mid eighteenth date. Some work to be done on it, but could do with the odd job to be done - still, I do like having the odd job in hand.

Snapshot of part of back garden. Garden contains largely shrubs and trees. Still, it should be interesting to see what's in it as the year rolls round.

Front Hall of (fairly) new home. The child's windsor chair to the right of the picture, belongs to grand daughter Lucy, and is the first restoration job I did after we moved in here last December. Sarah drove over here this morning and ran Ann into Ipswich Hospital this morning for her eye injection. Sarah has spent the day with us, and just started her long drive home to Milton Keynes. Hope she remembers to phones us when she gets home (she usually does).Been a good day.
