This is about the best you are going to get from me today, very busy day on the sofa: F1 Practice 3, Crystal Palace v Manchester City, F1 Qualifying, Chelsea v Fulham, all interspersed with world championship snooker and then the evening session at the Crucible to complete my day, so here it is:

Did May fly by? I know it started off with a bit of proper ice on the BB Micra Screen.

It must have done its June 1st today. Sun busting out all over, and a hour faffing about outside cutting the grass etc has had me "catching the sun" and coming in a little red-faced.

Must be approaching poppies in the fields season if the Countryfile Calendar has got it right. Got a few welsh ones in bloom now, but not quite in their profusion as yet.

First day Brick. October 1st 2021.

Not the finest example, but a new find for me.
NCB Wallsend
NCB Wallsend, probably one of 5 or 6 different named bricks from the same site.

In 1908, the Wallsend and Hebburn Coal Company established a brickworks at Rising Sun Colliery, mainly to supply common bricks for the company’s own collieries. The bricks were fired in a 16-chamber Hoffman kiln, each chamber capable of holding 10,500 bricks.

PS Next time I'm down in Amble I'll have to investigate this discovered just today.

....the brickmakers at Birtley sometimes used "to put their boot in it". This is in a wall in Amble along the side of a footpath next to the old railway line the remains of the former signal box. In the same wall is a named brick T Blythe and Sons Birtley Station 1894 Brick and Tile Wks. Radcliffe Brickworks in Amble were less than half a mile away, but they built the signal box with Birtley bricks!
