Just watched 'Our Yorkshire farm;, with the Owen family. What a happy, lovely family unit they are. All of them connect so well with each other.

Was back to the pub last night. A rather chilly one though. Enjoyed the novelty but think will wait to till the weather's warmed up before returning.

Just looked out of the window and it looks like they are rebuilding the central chimney at the Grand. I of course as you'd expect had already spoken to the bricklayer and he told me they are reusing all the old bricks and pots. Any new matching bricks needed due to breakages will go round the back.
They're just finishing it. Looks great as does the rebuilt facade This is a replica of the old one and includes a cartouche (I think that's what it is you architecture buffs will know) of the Essex crest but I'm not 100 per cent sure as the scaffolding is in the way. The development is painfully slow but they've now started the form work at the back. The side chimneys will be built round steel frames attached to the inner steel frame of the building. This itself will be costly and time consuming. How they will make a profit is beyond me. It must be costing a fortune. Still better than the derelict eyesore it's been for well over a decade.

Just received our second jab in France.Ironically a couple of days ahead of a good mate, my age in the UK,also a Shrimper,who lives in Norfolk these days.Anyone who thinks that France in particular and the rest of the EU in general aren't doing their level best to catch up with the UK's magnificent vaccine roll out is mistaken.

Had my second jab today as well down in deepest darkest Cornwall :Smile:
