SHOOTING STARS & PIRATES

Shooting stars & Pirates

 It’s almost time to start the sunday evening chores…..ironing, ironing and a bit more ironing!

The weekend has flown by, but then I always find that happens when I’m in front of the PC for most of it. I really need to sit down and start beading as I have orders to meet and long make list that isn’t going to get done on it’s own!

I did have a good afternoon taking pictures of my latest projects to see how best to go about providing a good picture to go with some (yet to be thought out) marketing.

Last night there was a meteor shower (v. late) so there were some shooting stars, or falling stars as they are also know. Brilliant!

Prior to a bit of star gazing we caught the evening showing of Pirates of the Carribbean, which was quite entertaining….I really must watch the first one again- maybe the ending might make a little more sense that way :)….perhaps I’ll do that whilst ironing…

Anyhow – ironing can’t be put off forever…..can it?

INTRODUCING PRU


So about 2 weeks ago we had a crazy idea that is starting to get legs…or should that be wheels heheIt started with a throw away comment about ‘getting a camper van to restore’ followed by ‘ oooh i could sell my beads at shows from it’…..shortly followed by a week of research and then dun dun daarrr……..we found Pru….

She’s lovely isn’t she. And purple.

Or as i prefer

Lilac :d

And she’s ours. Aaahhh bless.

Although it’s not polite to disclose a ladies age, I think that she is in such wonderful condition that it does need the briefest of mentions. Yes older than me, a lovely 1967 vw camper or ’67 splitty’ as she is affectionately known. Left hand drive presumably Californian model, she’s in pretty good nick. We’ve already removed the interior and after next week’s VW fest in Margam Park we’ll have the engine out to restore, following the little incident below!

So she was purchased from the ‘city near the sea’ and was brought back to the home ‘between the hills and the sea’ but not without a little drama (little overheating just off the motorway, which didn’t go unnoticed by the locals 😉

So here begins our first adventure with Pru.
