This was the people's choice.
The firm's aim was to provide a thoroughly contemporary building yet to continue the tradition of the English Pier Pavilion at Weston-super-Mare (which I think is so important) .
You may be wondering what this has to do with me..!
Well these lovely designs are the work of my nephew, Andrew, who just so happens to work for Angus Meek.

On Boxing Day my lovely daughter and her lovely husband came for the day, which was... lovely..and I finally got some CK goodies!! ;-)
But all we really wanted for Christmas was for my mum to be ok and my dad to not look so sad.
Hope your Christmas was lovely.
(Oh... and I didn't get a hoover !)

Oh most definitely... I do seem to be becoming a little weary nowadays. Ouch! My back's playing up... again ;-)
I'm sure you are all these things too?!
So here's what we all deserve, girls...your best Christmas present...
Did you catch that?
Here it is again...
Having thought long and hard, for about a nano second..
You know where I think he should stick that hoover?
And as for the lead...do you know what I'd do with that?
Answers in the comments section, please ;-)

It's the one for which I always make a beeline !Always a pleasure! I bought three super duper, pink, vintage baubles...as, if didn't you know, it's the year of the vintage bauble!! ;-)
Amanda always has the time to spare, to chat and catch up with the news..she reads many of our blogs!
Talking of pleasures... 'This 'n That'...
The streets of Totnes were lined with stalls and if you love the Christmas markets, either here or abroad, then Totnes is up there with them..it was wonderful! But packed!
And then there was the entertainment...what entertainment it was too!!
We found ourselves standing for what seemed forever, watching this band as they burst into song. Aptly positioned outside 'Animals in Distress, they burst into song with such lyrics which made us roar with laughter...they sang about 'Worms' and 'Christmas Turkeys', amongst other things and had their own unique style to entertain!
There's nothing like good, live street music ...(there's so much talent out there compared to the rubbish in the charts eh?!! Terry and Aled excepted of course!)
I wish you could have savoured the flavour of these musicians!
Meanwhile, at the other end of the town..these musicians 'blew me away' completely!!
What an evening! ;-)
(Maybe those responsible for the so called 'Victorian Evening' in Newton Abbot, this year, ought to visit Totnes for a few ideas.. and to see how something is done well!!)
