    It is all facinating Lee and l love to explore it all. On the end of Spurn point are the remains of extensive fortifications which have Napoleonic origins. Two years ago Jay and I had a real good explore of it all, it was brilliant. This time though a lot of it has been filled with sand and was real hard to get to.

    A long time ago I saw a set of pics showing how Spurn Point has moved about with the erosion.

    The whole area is worth a visit Lee, there is a rare acoustic sound mirror along the coast a bit, we walked up to have a look at it when we went two years ago. It was used for detecting enemy planes.

    Yes spurn is still on the move Ollie with the shifting of the sand.

    I took some pictures of Sootz and Sylvi this afternoon. I love the reflection one of Sylvi. Soots has started getting his winter coat already although it isn't as thick as it will be in a months time.

    Yes they are special cats and are mostly indoor cats although Grandad North did build them the gazebo so they can get out for fresh air. I do let them into the garden but only with supervision.

    You see that little gnome in the picture Lee, well the funny thing is I was digging in the garden when we first came here and dug him up. The nest year I dug up another and then a couple of years back I dug up a third !!! I still don't know if I will dig up any more or if the garden was a gnome burial ground !!!

    How strange NN I love gnomes but the proper ones not plastic and a good few years ago they used to be big business!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • CommentTimeSep 5th, 2010 10:04pm (Sep 5th 2010)
    These are stone ones and are just painted black, They are just as I dug them up. I can not stand the plastic ones they always look so naff.
    • CommentTimeSep 5th, 2010 11:25pm (Sep 5th 2010)
    I had to look at the picture of Sylvi for a good few minutes before I realised it was a mirror! Fabulous! Soots is looking very handsome too.

    I wonder if the gnomes were buried to represent something? It seems a very strange thing to do though, and nice to see you allowed them to remain and didn't throw them away.

    Thanks to Ollie I am now much more gnome-egable about gnomes. Brian hates them and I keep threatening to buy him one for Christmas.:biggrin:

    I have never been a fan of them myself Julie. I kept them as they had been part of the house and garden at sometime. I also dug up some old italian decorated tiles as well and keep meaning to make something with them as well.

    ooohh tiles NN they would be super. Have to start thinking what you can do with them.

    Tile a small area and put a nice planter pot there.
    Tile an old table top for out doors.
    Put them up on a wall so you enjoy them like a mural.
    There we go that's a start.:biggrin:

    In "The Olden Days" when I was a kiddie, the dustbins were emptied on the fields as fertiliser because they contained a lot of ash from the domestic fires.
    Is your house built on an ex-field?
    Mine was a turnip field and I have found some dsustbin stuff on occasions.

    I only got two tiles and they are broken I had planned on doing a mosaic picture for the outside wall. I got to have a tidy in the shed so will dig them out.
    It is amazing what you can do with an odd bit of rubbish.
    Thats interesting about the bins being emptied in the fields Ollie. I hadn't heard of that.
    • CommentTimeSep 9th, 2010 9:14pm (Sep 9th 2010)
    You could make a picture frame with them. Buy a cheap one, glue the broken bits of tile on, and fill the gaps between with grout or PVA glue.

    • CommentTimeSep 10th, 2010 8:35pm (Sep 10th 2010)
    They are in big bits and quite heavy tiles. I will take a photo of them when I find them again. You all got some real good ideas though.
