A little Tiling for the weekend, Sir?

Lovely Day in Galera

A lovely day for tiling? Well, actually it’s VERY hot out there but I gave it my best shot, bearing in mind it’s Sunday and if I run out of materials, well, tough. Today’s job was to tile the BBQ area which started off looking beautiful a couple of years ago when first built but which is looking a little ill now since the winter took it’s toll on the stone surface.

I gave up – the BBQ is no-where near square so I’m seeking advice. Meanwhile we went off to a local ancient market…


tmp126Fand ended up at the bar in Galera for drinks… I recall ordering a glass of wine and receiving an ice-bucket with a full bottle… what service… we came back to the cave and spent a little while star-gazing as it’s an incredibly clear night in which the edge of our galaxy is VERY clear indeed…. and once you grab the binoculars, what looks like a thin cloud… is actually jam-packed full of stars… super.

Tomorrow the girls are off shopping in BATHA, I plan to stop in bed as long as is humanly possible and then do some more work on my new hobby, the FSB FORUMS… so much to do, so few resources…

Other than that, all seems well today, no walls falling apart, no dire emergency calls from the UK (but then, it is Sunday).  Strangely I’m missing my cat – how sad is that… hoping he’s happy with whatever cats do… but not missing him enough to pay the horrendous cost of bringing animals over here…
