ON HOW TO FIX THEM TO THE WALL
The sweet heart will go in a bedroom, the seahorses in the loo and the fish is for outdoors. I have a plan to decorate the paling fence with various art and craft work.
I enjoy the design part of doing mosaics but the grouting is tedious and messy. I ended up handing them to John to grout. I don't think he really wanted to do it either so I guess I'll have to learn to enjoy grouting if I want mosaics. They are certainly a fun way to liven up the fences. The house is still surrounded by the high paling fence on three and a half sides. I can't afford to buy artwork so will make my own. I love creating stuff so it will be fun learning and experimenting.
My photos inside the bus are dreadful so I'll have another go tomorrow if I have time. It's a real mess inside and needs The Great Tidy-Up. We've been taking stuff out there for 2 years without worrying about whether they have a proper place. I'm waiting for some nice sunny days because the only way to sort out the mess is to throw everything out on the lawn and begin again. I guess there is a lot of stuff I need to get rid of. It's amazing how one accumulates once one stops moving. (travelling)
Today I discovered http://www.southerngospel.com/Solid-Gospel-Radio/ It was mentioned in a newsletter from Legacy Five. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening this afternoon. I will have to limit my listening time or will go over my internet usage.
That was my day.
