I'll put up the rest of the photos from the Exhibition (and there are a lot more lovely things I didn't take photos of), and their attributions, and then do a resume of today.
Each figure was computer-generated I think I remember Chris saying, and then sewn free-style on a sewing machine, and appliqued (you would not catch me even attempting to do anything like this!), it was truly quite amazing. It made me think, I wonder what YOU were doing during lockdown, Jo Beattie.
Today was get the boiler fixed day (temporary fix - apparently it hasn't been serviced for 18 mths . . .) We have had no hot water or heating (not that we needed the latter) for about 5 days now and have been having to boil up water for washing and in my case, hair washing every evening to get pollen off. I take no chances in June.
This afternoon it was grocery shopping, but before we went to Aldi, we called in at the Radnorshire Museum n Llandod, and had a lovely wander round. I will post photos tomorrow. I was really excited and surprised to find one whole corner of a room devoted to a display about the Rev. Frank Kilvert (whose diaries I have read or dipped into time and time again). It even had his writing desk and beautiful writing slope. There were books, and photos and paintings done by his sister Thersie (short for Thermusis, there's a name you don't often hear!) Oh, I was delighted and I will be back!
Right, money has been spent on a new bathroom suite for the house here, and a new toilet to replace the broken one in the en-suite. The latter arrives this week. The tiles for the bathroom were delivered yesterday but unfortunately 27 were damaged and so we are now awaiting their replacement. We are also awaiting a return call from the electrician we asked to come and quote for checking wiring here and fitting a new fuse-box . . . I will have to chase him up.
Now I am off to enjoy bathing with HOT water!
