Here's 'The Earth...' after working on it for most of today. There's nothing really recognisable about it this week, I was just working my way through the threads and stitching where I could. That red bit is a fish. The yellow bit at the top will be a dolphin, and the orange bit at the left hand side is gonna be a walrus. I'm getting there slowly. Every little helps right?
Tomorrow Craig is taking my car to Kwikfit to get the tyre fixed that he should have done a few days ago when he knew it had a slow puncture. He's had to put the space saver tyre on it tonight as there's a screw in the back nearside tyre and he still has to have a trip to Kwikfit in the morning. Then we're off to the Ford showroom to order my new car. Apparently I will be getting a voucher for £250 from Ford as a Loyalty Payment for getting another Ford, and Paul, the nice, good looking Motability specialist at the Ford showroom, will sort it out for me tomorrow. I'm going to get another Focus C-Max, which is what I'm used to, and what I passed my test in. Hopefully it'll be available for me to pick up on 5th May, the day after we get back from our holiday in Cornwall.
After the car thing, we're off to the Attic, where hopefully my framing will be ready for me to pick up...and I might just have to buy some other stuff, though I WILL try to resist. How successful that is is debatable, but we shall see.
Kate is at a concert tonight. Shayne Ward. He won the X-Factor last year. Teenagers these days have no taste. When I was a teenager it was the Bay City Rollers, The Osmonds, The Jackson Five, Mud, Slade...oh those were the days. Songs that had lyrics that you could sing along to cos you knew what they were saying. Slade might not have been good spellers, but come on...Cum On Feel The Noize?...a classic. And I always have the BCR CD in the car. It really pisses the kids off when I put that one on, full blast, and sing along at the top of my voice. They love it! NOT!!!
