I am going to give knitting gnomes a break for now!! These are all take home gifts for Our Little Man's 1st birthday party on September 12th. That year has just flown by.
Via Facebook this photo was posted of dh's dad back in the late 60's early 70's:
He is taking explosives down the mine. He worked for a company called British Gypsum and he was a general worker in the mine. As far as we know he didn't set up the explosives in the mine itself. At one time or another the majority of dh's family worked there, though dh was never down the mines. My dad and my granddad also worked for British Gypsum and my nana was one of the cooks in the canteen. My granddad and nana worked at a different plant. It was a major employer in our area.
Back to the photo. Do you think today's Health and Safety might have something to say about the way the explosives were being moved???? OF COURSE THEY WOULD.......LOL
