Waiting for the Paint to Dry

I have the shed to myself this weekend so I have been painting all afternoon and am at a bit of a stand still until some things dry so I thought I had better update my poor neglected blog.  My mother keeps asking me when I'm going to update it as it’s the only way she knows what’s happening with us.

Tony is away in Griffith racing this weekend , I was emailing our friend who didn't go, if he was having trouble listening to it on the internet, he was and then told me Tony rolled the car during the prologue.  He said that he thinks Tony, Gary and the car are okay but that was all the information I could get.  Tony isn't answering his phone so will have to sit tight until someone phones me.  Fingers crossed they will still be able to race tomorrow.

It’s been a few weeks since I updated and we were in the middle of Redcliffe eisteddfod, the Sunday was just as successful as Saturday the group received first in the National Section and second and third in the Open Jazz.  The school received a lot of Studio Awards.  Some pictures of the some of the costumes, these were not taken by me some where taken with phones so they are not the best quality.

This was their hip hop costumes.

Open Jazz costume for Batman and the Joker.  Tess would have preferred the Batman costume cute outfit with knee high boots.

The following week Tess did work for the Showtime Talent Agency at Northlakes Shopping Centre.  She worked everyday supervising children making dragons, she also dressed in the dragon suit and walked around the shopping centre.  It was a long week as it was an hours drive to the shopping centre the days I dropped her off I stayed until she finished.

On the Tuesday I had some jobs for Tony to do in Boondal so Lucy and I went op shopping from Sandgate up to Redcliffe.  We found a few goodies mainly white crockery for my kitchen dresser.  I didn't take any photo’s of the things I found,  I scored a lovely white jug , some white plates and an old fashioned table cloth I cant remember what else I got .  After we headed home I had some money to spend for my birthday which was a few weeks ago.  I went to a curtain and homeware store in Nambour and got this.

Horrible photo’s the light was terrible but it’s a throw for my lounge it’s very pretty I also got a wrought iron toilet roll holder.  I found this at a shop in Northlakes I had been eyeing them off for a while now.

All the stores had sales so I scored some cheap white platters

Couldn't get them too large as they wouldn't fit into my dresser.  Anyway the things should be dry now.  Still have more to post about including our trip to the Brisbane Botanical Gardens.

Bye for now
