Well, here I am in my alternative office again - The Lymestone Vaults!
|Music at the Lymestone Vaults|
Anyway, for now we are chilling.
It's the Jazz and Blues Festival in Newcastle-under-Lyme and we are really loving the sound of Cheap Cuts. In fact they just played that classic Divine Comedy song - National Express :-) They are great!
Can't beat curry and chips, cider and free entertainment!
Oh wow - they just did Ask by the Smiths - I love them!!
|Nathan relaxed :-)|
|OMG - Candyfloss!!!|
The night before Jan and I had gone to see The Great Gatsby at the Vue in Newcastle (we like it there - the seats are more comfy and roomy than the Odeon in Festival Park) I have to say that I was very impressed. They did a great job of sticking to the actual story as in the book and it was just beautiful to look at. Stunning in fact. The houses and the clothes - just beautiful - I would recommend it to you all. (Warning: does not contain car chases and explosions) Well, not many :-)
|Plenty of plants|
You should have seen all the plants we had in the library!
We started by filling our wire baskets with a layer of moss. This had been taken from the lawns of Biddulph Grange just the day before when they did their scarifying. They said it was best fresh - and they actually sell theirs for £1 a bag to the public!
|Having fun with flowers|
They said that when they all flower it will be a profusion of pink and yellow! I had to find a few bin bags for everyone to take their home in - they were so heavy too! The room was a bit of a mess when everyone had gone - but we managed to clean most of it up before Coral, our cleaner, saw it!!
|This is my effort :-)|
I wonder what she will come up with next time??
|The ladies hard at work!|
|Getting professional help!|
