fabric bead necklace and beach walk
It is heating up again. I finished off this fabric bead necklace a few days ago, they are fun to do. We walked early this morning as today and the next few days will be quite hot. I m sick of the heat and no rain. Yesterday I went up to see our Welsh youngstock show in the hills, always difficult as we are in the midst of the cycling Tour down Under and although there were no official races where I was there seemed to be some unofficial ones. Windy hills roads and cyclists are not a good mix. We did reasonably well, the show has two rings and two judges, one judge gave us a fair go and we came home with two reserve champions and a champion. I dont think the other judge liked us at all. The way it goes sometimes. It was really quite hot and I dont really like the grounds either, dirty and dusty where you park. Not sure we will bother next year. It is an effort to get ponies ready at that time of the year and expensive. I shouldnt be moaning but honestly I really dont like the heat. Would just love a week of rain and dont care if it is humid and hot with it. We are going to start worrying about lack of rainwater in the tanks soon. That means transferring to spring water to wash with etc, everything but to drink, and that means a red residue from the iron in the water. Not good for washing whites.
