The weekend "doings"

The pair of us have truly had the weekend to end all rock 'n' roll weekends here......Saturday I met my fellow wombles and the team of volunteers who sort all the recycling that comes in on a Wednesday for a mega session to get it all in boxes and ready to be sent off. I have to say I didn't realise how jolly it could be with 6 of us sorting bag after bag of donated goods...the lady packing the crisp packets has turned it into a higher art form. The banter [or bants as TYM would call it] was hilarious....so much better than doing it all on my ownsome in my garage as I used to.

As storm Ciara confined us to barracks it was deemed a day of "catching up" on Sunday. Mr GBT saw to the hobbity booze [wine] whilst I finished the back of the head for the latest Mythago mask. I hope that the colours I've chosen immediately suggest the element I'm working on!


We have finally got round to hanging my Christmas present in the bathroom too. It's a devil to photograph, so difficult to do it justice. In real life it's a 3 D image with the water lilies on top and lots of sparkly glitter throughout to enhance the effect. It's a water nymph and is the work of Caroline at A House of Wonders.


However, as the old adage goes about all work and no play we did managed to squeeze in the occasional takeaway we enjoy a couple of times a year with friends.

  1. It sounds like you made the most of the weekend despite the weather. The fiery headdress looks amazing and I cannot wait to see the end result.

    1. Thank you. It's coming along. Still needs quite a bit more work before it's finished. Arilx
