When Russell was here on Christmas Day, he was wearing new jandals.
We all admired them, they were nice looking, and very comfortable as well.
ABOVE: How our 'lounge' looks now with the dining table in there. It's not THAT cramped!
And we get the benefit of having a BIG family room now.
TODAY? Well if the weather is OK, we are going to Coromandel to the Keltic Fair. It's held every year on the 2nd of January, and we have not been to one in at least 10 years, if not more.
I have a very dear friend in Coromandel, so we will be visiting her too. I've not seen her in years either.
ABOVE: A couple more ink tiles I did yesterday afternoon.
ABOVE: It's starting to look like a production line! I am going to try selling them at the local market. Some will be wall hangings, and some will be trivets. I wonder if they will sell?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO AMANDA TODAY.
9.00 pm: We have had a lovely, lovely day!
ABOVE: Traffic along the Thames coast was fairly heavy. The road was as I remembered it, narrow and twisty.
ABOVE: Beautiful countryside on the way over the hill to Coromandel.
ABOVE: The Keltic Fair was NOT as I remembered it. Nowhere near as many stalls, and bugger all 'proper' crafts. Lots and lots of clothes stalls, hats, jewellery and cheap shit.
Very disappointing really.
I DID enjoy the hot dog and chips!
I bought some clips for half empty bags/containers of drink etc. A sun hat for Keera and 3 more concrete fish for the garden.
ABOVE: Keera on a 'baby' Rocking Pirate Ship. She loved it!
ABOVE: Visiting with my girlfriend Frieda. She gave me the scarf that's on Griffin's face.
ABOVE: We took Keera for a splash at Long Bay. By the time we got there, the tide was out and it was drizzling, but she didn't care! She had a blast... which was neat.
On our way home, we stopped at Thames and had dinner at a local restaurant. The food was fair to middling. It was nice to 'eat out' rather than go to a food court though.
Uneventful trip home...
ABOVE: And THIS is what happens in summer when I travel! Huge, swollen feet/ankles. Major IKKK. Me feet look deformed!
Time to relax and put them up!
