Building inspiration

I don't know if Oliver Postgate was big into DIY, but followers of children's programmes might be interested to know that each little bit of wood joining the big bits of wood in this picture...


...is called a: 'Nogging' ('Nog' in Scotland and New Zealand).

Must dash - I've dropped one of the clangers I was using to build a bagpuss.

Caitlin and Guy went to the library on Sunday to watch back to back episodes of Noggin The Nog. I didn't go, can't stand NTN. They also had sushi at Yo!Sushi after, another thing I don't like. Yes, the gaping chasm between me and my family yawns ever wider . . .

word verification - 'elate'. Ah, happy happy thoughts. . .

ooo! Is that a yurt platform?!

"we will fix it, we will mend it, we will make it work work work!!"

"let's push Charlie Mouse into the bottle!"

Ah, I so wish I could write that noise that Professor Yaffle makes . . . can you hear it in your head?!












(or are the voices just talking to me??)

Still can't talk. Interweb caff. School pick-up time. Ooh, the suspense.
