So, what to do with Friday? Well there is so much needs done both inside and outside that I doubt that I'll have trouble filling the day. So will most likely be garden, painting or sorting out the craft room (which seems like a perpetual task I have to say).
Today I got some pictures from the lovely Becky (http://www.chameleondesigns.co.uk/index.html) who I commissioned to make some silver core beads for me. I asked for them in a range of red/orange colours and wanted them to have some gold it at all possible (as gold trollbeads are so expensive!) and maybe a couple of animal print type ones. Well I have to say that Becky has amazed me with her lampwork skills and come up more than trumps. Here are the little beauties I should have in my possession by the end of the week. Aren't they just delish!
Becky tells me that now that Uni is finished for the summer she's going to be very busy with the torch, can't wait to see what else she comes up with.
Well a day in Derry/Londonderry for me tomorrow. Now foreigners to our lovely soil may not know or understand why it is a city so wonderful they named it twice - but if you want to know, hit me up and all will become clear!!

I took this picture a couple of weeks ago on the Gobbins path in Whitehead, Co. Antrim. I love gardening too - well at least when the weather is dry (bit of a challenge at times here) and I'm not travelling with work that is. When I have visitors to Northern Ireland I love to show them the side of this pretty country that was all too often forgotten in the new coverage of the past.
Hopefully one of the things I can do is show more folks that this is truely a beautiful place and well worth a visit for all the right reasons - great Guinness, the natives are friendly (I would say that wouldn't I ;o)) and fantastic scenery.
I guess I'll need to sort out a profile, a pictures and all manner of clever things if I am to become visible on the www.
WATCH OUT WORLD - HERE I COME!
