Updating my Website

Getting around to updating my website. It's been a while. In November 2010 my husband suffered a serious brain injury whilst cycling to work. It put our life in turmoil. Three years on, he is trying to find his place in life and I'm trying to get back to my jewellery business.

The Cavern Beatles

Last night we took the kids to see The Cavern Beatles at the Swansea Grand Theatre. They were brilliant. They dedicated a song to the kids because they had boards with 'I Love The Beatles' on them. How cool was that!!! It made their day.

Penllergaer Market

Had a lovely morning selling at Penllergaer Market. Saw a couple of returning customers which is always lovely. Took a few orders. And chatted with friends. The Scouts were there this month raising money by selling hot dogs and bacon butties - yum!

New Earrings

Busy today making two new designs of earrings. They are called 'Amazing' and 'Trend'. You can find them in the section for 'Fine Silver Jewellery'. They are on page 2 as I can't remember how to get them onto page 1!! The 'Amazing' earrings use more than a meter of Fine Silver! It takes a long time to make all these circles.

Great News

We are so pleased to say the Nuthatch was back in the garden this morning. As were the Great Tit family and the baby House Sparrows. We watched as one of the baby House Sparrows was shown by its parent how to get seed from the feeder. We saw it take its first food by itself...wow...isn't nature wonderful.

Nuthatch

This morning we were sat out in the garden having a cup of tea, when a Nuthatch arrived. Wow how fantastic. We are thrilled. Hoping it keeps coming now. A few minutes later it was joined by a family of Great Tits, Mum, Dad and four fledglings. Surely the morning couldn't get any better......but it did. Next there was a lot of noise and two fledgling House Sparrows appeared with a parent. They were very cute to watch and very insistent that they got fed.

The Wetlands, Llanelli

This afternoon we popped over to the Wetlands Llanelli. We fed the ducks, saw lots of ducklings - very cute - had a coffee and cake, then headed home. I highly recommended this as a place to visit. A really enjoyable and relaxing experience. They have even got a new coffee machine! for those of you who have been before.
