Not dead, just busy.
I know I have been a bit conspicuous by my absence from this world of cyberness, but at times I find I need to step away from the usual commitments and have some "time out". This does not necessarily mean I have been lying on the beach cocktail in hand, Though a bit of beach lying was involved and the odd glass of wine has passed my lips. I have put some creative energy into our extremely slow renovation. Some of you may remember the dry stone wall made in the last christmas holiday hiatus, well I have finally got to the paving of the flat part behind the wall and it is almost finished! Ignorance is bliss in these cases. "Paving can't be too hard she says". "They do it all in a half hour program on the telly". I have decided that every second brick in my design has been cut at least once. It is back breaking work. I shall show more pics once the whole lot is done but here are some of the process. Please excuse my rather large bum but it seems it was unavoidable.We also went for a lovely trip down the south coast camping to Dalmeny. Great range of things to do there. I can quite safely say that I was the only one spinning in the camp ground.There were some rather lovely rocks with the most amazing colours.Oh and we managed to catch some rather yummy fish, no thanks to the seals who kept stealing the best ones of our lines. They had this rather annoying habit of taking the fish and then popping up nearby with the said fish in flipper as if to taunt us. I guess it may be debatable as to who was stealing whos fish.
