Not a lot has been going on round here these last few days, but here's a few things that have been keeping me busy. We hosted a 60th wedding anniversary party here this weekend, and on the Sunday morning, one of the guests buzzed the house a few times trailing a "60 Years" banner from his powered paraglider. Here's a photo and a short video:
I have finally finished the tiling job that I started in March. My excuse for the long delay is that I've been busy with guests since then, and you really need a good day to get going on a tiling job, or else you end up spending your time just cleaning your tools. Here is a picture of the tower, with the mosaic in place. Thank you to all my blogging friends for your suggestions on the design, which were taken into account in this final version by the wife. I cut all the round tile edges by hand, using an angle grinder. It's a bit tricky. And finally some pampas grass looks nice against the bright morning sky.
The St Suzanne Harmonie played at a wedding on Saturday morning. I took a rest in the coffee shop just outside afterwards. This is a video of the scene. You can hear church bells, a disco, bagpipes and traffic noise.
