We are taking the new caravan and can park it behind the marquee for the weekend.
We are looking forward to it a lot--just to get away from the hard work going on here!
Must get the house a bit straight though before we go for my friend whos coming to pet sit again!!
We have a class on Saturday morning before we set off for the steam rally, although we will get everything ready to go on Friday, just have to pack up from class and go.
Bill has knocked out the old dining room door and is going to plaster board it tomorrow, then it will be cleared ready to tile the floor.

Bill has worked very hard today doing the tiling--its hard to imagine that he has tiled the walls without using a tile cutter once! The tiles come on a hesian backing and you simply cut through to the required shape.

The weather stayed good-sunny and warm-better than forcast!
Lots of people interested in painting classes-some interesting chats to visitors too--some people from Suffolk stopped by for a long chat. I am looking forward to hearing from them again.

Its an interesting painting to do, built up in layers and layers of paint.
It was quite funny to watch the proccess, because each stage was very good as a painting in itself, the first layers looked almost like a giraffe skin,the second layer looked like a photo of the world taken from space, and after the finished article looked like the underwater scene intended.
He is coming back later this month to paint a large seascape.
Trine came over to stay with us for a week last year from her home in Norway and we had a great time.
She has just had a great article about her in Teen Trend magazine, she has worked very hard to get to where she is and we wish her loads more sales and success.
You can see her work and more on her blog http://www.mtv65.blogspot.com/

The local Julian Graves shop has had a half price sale for 2 days and Bill has been and got his fruit for his christmas cakes.
It was a bargain I suppose, and its good to get oranic fruit too-but will anyone tell the difference after all the brandy and sherry has gone into the cakes!!!!

I have also made a delicious mango and tomato sweet chilli salsa to go with it all--I think the diet has gone out of the window this weekend somehow-but you have to make the most of this weather!!
Off now to prepare some more food!
