Job this week -- Improve Coral fountain thingy
This actually looks a bit better in real life in my opinion . Anyway there is always something changing at the Shambles and unfinished things sometimes get finished. This isn't finished yet as I have run out of shells and coral . In fact I have broken up heaps of terracotta pots and picked up the odd stone or twenty on walks to cover the thing.
It is looking lumpen and for a while had the look of one of the Glasshouse Mountains but give it time...
Anyway as I was explaining to our son John the other day while we were attempting to build a shelf for Michael's piano-"never let the fact that you don't know how to do something stop you from giving it a go" wise words or misguided but any way we did muddle through and produce a piano stand but by Michael's face it wasn't what he had imagined. Things never are!
The fact is that John and I were mid way through the construction me with the electric drill and John with the jig saw when the power went out. Typical Montville! ( It only has to be windy or rainy and we are running for the candles and filling buckets- Michael and I now have head lights to wear in black outs.) Anyway we stood around for a while holding the tools waiting for it to come back on but we eventually had to put them down. 9 Hours later!!!! it came back on and frankly I couldn't have cared less about the bloody piano stand. The moment had gone and has yet to return.Michael is muttering that it isn't finished and how he wants it decorated . I told him it's on the list. Kyleigh
