friday

Ian took this pic today for the About Us on our website for today the builder phoned to confirm that all the things he was commissioned to do have in fact been done! We have changed our minds about brick paving and now are going to have wooden decking so Jim the chippie is coming around to show us his photos - we will look forward to that. My chopping table arrived so off to have a good look and move it into place. I spent some of my time today frustratedly waiting in line at Spotlight (hate that shop) buying white netting (no - not for my tutu but for the silk fusion and felt making kits). Getting served is like waiting for Godot. Then I had to wade through Ikea where there were hundreds of people (what were they all doing? Ian thinks practising for the Saturday morning shopping expedition) and I only wanted a pack of wheels for my trolley. This took nearly 2 hours of my precious time.....

Last night we went to a fabulous concert by the Australian Chamber Orchestra - they are wonderful - and it included the amazing Teddy Tahu Rhodes - he surely can sing. I think they are a wonderful orchestra of world standing. Richard Tognetti a very talented man running the show.

I would have loved to have been at the concert. You deserved such a treat after 2 hours of Spotlight and Ikea.

Cheers Helen

Dale I am seriously envious of your space. Particularly as I now have half my mothers stuff here, everytime she moves most of it comes down here. This time apart from a few things that will replace my crumbling furniture I am keeping it in boxes!

Love the airiness of your space - we have an extension for the snooker table and it is similar. I love light.

Haha!! Waiting for Godot! I love it! My husband has this theory about Spotlight: that it sucks all the life out of you. He points all the older men out to me and tells me that they were only 30 when they walked in. :)
