Ben really likes the No Fear Label t-shirts, the latest lot have got skulls all over them, so got him 3 t-shirts, pair of shorts and a hoodie as part of his birthday present, all in black of course, he won't wear any other colour. We also popped into the huge B & Q there to pick up a cabinet door for the new kitchen. We then had lunch in KFC, that's quite a treat as there are no takeaways like that near us, the closest McDonald's is about half an hour away in Carmarthen & the closest KFC is at Swansea which is approximately an hour away... Then we called into Makro's as I needed some dishwasher tablets & washing powder and then home...
Checked my EBay when we got in to see who's paid, will get their parcels off in the morning. Been working on miniatures tonight, having a go at Sushi...!
Popping over the Boot Sale Queens tomorrow as its Brandon's Birthday, must remember to take a bale of hay with me... Tash has loads of Rabbits...
Think I best be off to my bed now, didn't realise the time....

Finished off a few more miniature bits today. I also sorted out a box of Miniatures that I had previously made, not food, but miniature trunks. Am debating about making some more, was going to put the ones I've made on ebay, but just can't bear to part with two of them. One is a Baby's chest, with nappies, blankets and a dinky yellow duck etc. The other is a Gentleman's chest, with his smoking jacket, hat and tiny leather slippers, blanket, Book & glasses.

Rang the Boot Sale Queen quick and she said they had a really nice time away over the weekend and found three boot sales and brought loads of bargains, good job you got that camper van Tash.... Apparently they came home loaded with bargains..
I've got to take Harry into town today to get him some new school uniform, as he's moving up to big school its a totally new uniform. Also got some parcels to post. Will be taking Ben & Harry to Swansea this week to get their school shoes, more shops there to choose from although I normally get them both Clark's Shoes!

Popped to Carmarthen this afternoon as we needed another cupboard for the kitchen, managed to get the carcase but not the door, so will have to have a trip to Swansea. The Kitchen is getting there, will try & take some pictures tomorrow.
Really looking forward to tomorrow, my friend is coming to stay, it will be lovely to catch up. Best I have a quick wipe round with the hoover...

Harry had his riding lesson yesterday & his friend Tom came back to ours & stayed the night and all day today, not that I've seen much of them only when they were fed or thirsty. Been watching DVDs & playing on the PlayStation. I told them they needed to go out & get some fresh air & Harry's reply was "its OK Mum we've opened the window".
Ben's been doing his own thing either watching TV or in his room on the computer, listening to music or on the phone. Hi Katie if your reading this.
Off now to go finish up these miniatures & hopefully get them listed on EBay tomorrow...

Just had a lovely email from a lady called Judy who lives in Canada and who has brought some miniatures from me via Ebay. She was really pleased with them & has asked if I could make some bits for a Mouldy Old Kitchen, that she's making. Emailed her back & said I'd have a go. I'm so used to making everything pristine, but it sounds like fun. I've had a flash of ideas, just have to put them down on paper so I don't forget.

Monday spent the day doing washing and listing some more miniatures on Ebay. Wall cabinets started to go up in the kitchen & the extractor fan is on the wall. Derek the plumber rang and he is coming sometime this week to move the gas point over for the cooker.
Diane rang last night and said she has a problem with Sheamus, first off Sophie's mum doesn't want her riding him and I don't blame her & secondly Sheamus has been kicking the hell out of Diane's youngsters. So looks like he's coming back here again!
Rang Karen this morning to see if she still wanted him on loan, but due to unforeseen circumstances she can't take him either.
Today I've bathed Cravat and got him shining for tomorrow. Its an early start in the morning, I've got to leave here no later then 7am. Ken brought me up a fresh caught lobster and I'm off to eat it now.!!

Spent a couple of hours this afternoon reading the new Harry Potter to Mick & the boys, while we were waiting for Mark to turn up.
Mark & Tony then arrived and Tony put the Hay into lines and Mark followed him to Bale. We then followed in the Jeep with the trailer hitched up to start bringing the Hay in. Its a mammoth job & I'm not too sure whether its all going to go in the barn!
The boys enjoy riding in the trailer & loading it but not lifting the bales as they are really heavy. I don't know what we'd do without Ben helping, hes so strong & can lift the bales that I can't. We started to put the hay in the barn tonight and did two loads. God knows how long its going to take us tomorrow to get the rest in, but get it in we must as the weather is about to turn again and we can't afford for it to get wet. By the time we've finished I'll have muscles like Arnie! So much for me resting my back....
