Rain,rain go away

There is no let up with this weather yet! Just look at that sky. Sam and i took a drive around today after walking the dog and getting soaked! The waves were coming up over on to the front in town which is great fun if youre walking along there!! Took these pics at Porthmeor, it was quite stormy, the waves were great, no surfers surprisingly!!!

Hi everyone i have not posted for almost a fortnight because my computer was being a bit weird, i got so cross with it that i just left it and got on with my painting, painting the house that is! I,ve done the front room and now i have finished in the kitchen. I am not doing any more now till after Christmas! And so i come back to the computer and hey presto its working properly! well i suppose we all need a rest from time to time! I promised those of you who asked about my Katz that they will be in my Folksy shop and so they will be later tonight, altough my pictures are not too brill because it seems we have no light here due to bad weather which has been going on all month, its all getting a bit much , i have 2 bedraggled ponies up in a very muddy field, a dog who hates the rain so hasnt been out much and 2 cats peering out of the window and braving the outside only when they have to !!!!

I,m still here!

I have been away from the computer for a while, well i have been checking in to read your blogs now and again. Chris had two weeks off work so we did a bit of decorating. Evenings were taken up with work. Now i am pretty much back to normal, but i have lots of sewing and beading to do as i have a craft fair coming up at the end of the month! I have been making some Robins that i made last year and some gingerbread men. We,ve had some very windy and wet weather just lately and my garden is looking a bit of a mess, a bit battered, so i must try and do something with that too. I actually put my heating on for the first time last week, its gone quite cold. Bonfire night was pretty uneventful as the weather was a bit windy, Sam actually isn,t that keen really on Fireworks. Nowadays there don,t seem to be many Bonfires, just fireworks. When i was little everyone used to take their wood and stuff to the local community centre and build the most enormous bonfire then we would all go and stand around it with hot potatoes, hot dogs, treacle toffee , light the bonfire with the guy on the top then watch the fireworks and it was just great! Quite a few years ago now there used to be a big bonfire on Porthmeor Beach and everyone used to go , it was fab, take a flask with you and sit on the beach by the fire, but sadly its not allowed anymore. Thats Health and Safety for you i s'pose. Anyway back to the sewing!!!!

Have a great week everyone x x x
