Spent Saturday on the railings in Wicklow surrounded by fellow artists. It was a lovely day. Bright warm sunshine and lots of people around. Wicklow town was buzzing with lots of events on, unfortunately I could not explore as I had to stay with my items. I had lots of interest and met a lot of very interesting people, it is great to get feedback from customers and this keeps me in touch. I came home at the end of a very tiring day, sunburnt and happy. Geoffrey came home later, dirty and tired from his day acting!

I have to admit - I miss my toaster. We are still without a toaster as we have not had the time to go to the shops and pick out one, preferably one that does not take 10 minutes to toast! Toast done under the griller is just not the same.

Woke up this morning and turned to look at the clock as usual - nothing - blank face - nuts, the electricity had gone during the night. We lay there for a while contemplating not getting up. Have you ever thought how much we rely on electricity - almost everything, it is times like that when I would have liked to have a gas cooker. Anyway Geoffrey finally got up and I followed more slowly. I wandered around upstairs while I cleaned my teeth and flicked the landing switch and lo and behold it worked! I flew down to Geoffrey (sitting in front of the blank tv) and told him about the lights working. He rang the electricity company (having previously rung them to say we had no electricity), they suggested that we unplug everything and then gradually plug them in, one at a time. I suggested that we start with the toaster as it had been taking a long time to toast. I got that look husbands give wives! Plugged it in and BANG it blew the fuse! I hated that toaster and am very glad that it can now be recycled!
