Afternoon all
Was quite sunny here for a while :sun_with_face: and able to take photos in the garden.
I was quite pleased with these ‘blingy’ earrings! Blingy to me anyway :upside_down_face: Especially as they were just made from some old bits of brass and copper.
Have a good Sunday evening x

@teabreaks @XStitcherJoss It’s a phrase I use with my friend when we go walking. If there’s not enough blue sky for a sailor’s trousers we have coffee instead!
Her late mother used to say it. She was Welsh speaking from Rhos. Perhaps it’s a generational phrase rather than geographic. Either way, it’s a nice phrase. By using it ourselves hopefully another generation will use it after we’ve gone.

It was my Dad who used to talk of sailors’ pants. His father was Cornish, his mother was Russian, and Dad was brought up in London. I think the expression is, as Cat @BabanCat says, probably generational. Also I think the expression is very old, and relates to sailors’ pants from a very long time ago. Francis (@thatenamelguy) says his father used to say ‘enough blue for a pair of Dutchman’s trousers’. He was from Essex. I used the expression without thinking, so it was a nice surprise to have all this reaction on this thread!

Good morning.
Off to the day job today - not really feeling it as its cold and dark but I suppose I have no choice. I’m sure a brisk dog walk will get me going!
Amazingly I have managed to line up a few new listings to share with you this week. This one was one of the half finished projects I had had lying around for ages that I finally got finished last week :slight_smile:
