Entertaining in Sodom and Gomorrah...

Been away from the blog for a few days as we've had friends come to stay. They live in Spain and as Marina is 6 month pregnant, I think they've come over to get away from the heat! However, I really don't know what they thought about staying with us as we'd got builders in one room and plasterers in another - dust, dirt, power tools and two different radio stations playing at full volume... It was like a scene from a disaster movie... To get to the kitchen we had to go out of the french doors in the lounge, across the patio (which looks more like a junk yard - full of wood, bricks, buckets, toilets and washbasins) and through the back door. That wasnt' too bad on Tuesday and Wednesday... but not so much fun yesterday when it was bucketing down with rain! Needless to say we spent most of the time out of the house!

Today it's back to the beads - plus going to buy the fish tank mentioned in Monday's blog.

I did repairs today - four necklaces that needed sorting. Some were an easy fix - others needed completely re-stringing. The most interesting was a necklace where it had a tassel that had come undone. I tried to fix it, but to no avail. So, I took it all apart and made a new tassel following the instructions from a wonderful seed beader on UKBeader forum. I'm really pleased with how it turned out!

We now have the fish tank and my daughter is currently going up and down the stairs filling it up with a jug... We should be getting the fish on Monday... watch this space!
