The 25th of December, 2017 will stand as a red letter day. It was the day that Christmas came to Pemberley. The day was spent with trusty watch dog Rolex, 18 month old grandson Callum and significant others, (left to right: me, Georgii, Nette, Simon holding Callum and Sam at front). It was an absolute blessing to share church, gifts and the day together.
Christmas has also given me a bit of time to rest my broken little finger. It appears to be healing well, with the last X-ray showing it starting to knit back together. However, 3 weeks in it still surprises me just how debilitating such a seemingly small injury can be.
But as I can still use the computer mouse left handed I've started drafting stage two of the croft. This will be single level and add two bedrooms, a library and a kitchen/living area to the existing, approved building. It's a bit of a challenge to draw: for two reasons. Firstly, I'm right handed, so while I can use a mouse in my left hand, my lack of dexterity is frustrating. Secondly, I'm using SketchUp a free application for drawing 3D models. It's a great product - but along with the left hand, there's quite a learning curve - though so far, well worth the investment.
