Our windows got smashed which is such a complete and utter pain (no pun intended). It isn't the first time. It's what comes with having a shop situated in the pub and club end of town. The good news, is that we have now had all of the windows and the wooden frames replaced. They look very marvellous indeedy. The bad news, is that we're having grills fitted over the windows to protect them from drunkards and idiots. The plan is that we should be able to remove them each day, I'm not looking forward to that bit, on the bright side it will be good for the old arm exercises.
While I was clearing out the windows I found lots of treasures that needed a bit of a dust off and a new place to live.
Aah where would we be without the retro pineapple ice bucket
Or indeed an apple ice bucket
Just a small selection of our window wares.
While cleaning, photo-ing flitting and serving, I listened to, The Decemberists , Tunng, The Kings of Convience and Jose Gonzalez. All a bit mellow but that's how I'm feeling at the moment (and long may it last)
