Hastings Pier

On Friday we went down to Hastings to have a look at the poor old pier. We have all read about the fire in the papers, and although the pier has been run down for a number of years, surely it did not deserve this fate? It really is a very sad sight, and I do wonder if they will be able to rebuild it, I suppose time alone will tell. One of the shops along the seafront has a model of the pier in its window, as it looked in its heyday, I am sure they will treasure that model now. Luckily the weather stayed dry for us, but it was very cold! We had a good day anyway, and a lovely lunch, along with some retail therapy!

Below are some photos I took, I haven’t figured out how to get the writing under the pics so it appears in the right place, but I am sure I will figure that out one day! Keep warm all and enjoy what is left of the weekend.

St Thomas’ Hospital Sandwich

Hopefully this will be a near normal blog, I am still finding out things here, and I am very pleased to see Technogran is one of my followers now, as I shall be using her hints and tips a lot I am sure :)

I am using Live Writer, so I hope this all comes out as it should!

St Thomas’ Hospital in Sandwich is one of 3 hospitals set up in Medieval times to provide Alms to pilgrims and poor people, today there are two of these hospitals still fulfilling their original function. St. Thomas’ Hospital is a beautiful building providing sheltered housing for old people in Sandwich. It proudly boasts the date 1392 above the door.


I had to go round to the hospital for work purposes, and of course I always carry my camera. so business done I took just a few minutes to take some snaps. The entrance to the Hospital is through a wonderful gate, it must be a lovely place to live. I hope you have enjoyed the photos, there will be more very soon. I wish everyone a very happy weekend, I have to work all day tomorrow so I bet the weather will be lovely!!!

New Hobby!

I have taken up making jewellery, its a long story but this evening I made my first piece. My sons friend has a birthday coming up so I thought I would try to make a bracelet for her to save a bit of money. I am quite pleased with the result, so watch this space, because I think this could be a consuming hobby (Oh no, not another one!!!)

My first blog here after Windows Live...

I have spent  the last few days sorting out my page here to see what I can and can't do especially regarding the gadgets. I haven't given Wordpress a go yet, and I am not sure if I will be giving it a go. I like to share my pictures and think Blogger may be the best place to do this, but I suppose only time will tell. I still have to figure out how to add pictures to my blog, so will keep this one short and sweet.....Oooh it worked :)
