Made me smile

So I did get spanked Monday but I haven't had time to write it up yet, I'll do it by Friday though.

Yesterday P got a call from our Finnish partner, he was in London and he hadn't told us! There's a Finnish mission in London and he was visiting there on business, we don't do much with Finland these days but we do keep in touch. P said why not hop on a train and by late afternoon he picked him up at our local station, it was very nice to see Stefan again and in the evening we went to a local restaurant and sat outside which was nice with our weather being so warm for a change. After we'd eaten we went to an old town pub, they still sprinkle sawdust on the floor, opposite the guild hall and P and Stefan drank too much Guinness (its a thing they started in an Irish bar in Helsinki years ago) and I had to drive home.

Anyway enough of my chit chat these made me smile.......



Somebody has been busy with the play-doh.



Interesting piece of furniture. Not very practical for a dinner table though.



How about a piece of glass art for your living room.

Hi Ronnie,

I really love the table. It's exquisite. It sounds like you had a lovely time with Stefan. I remember seeing sawdust on the floors at the indoor farmers' market when I was small, and I suppose it's used in pubs for the same purpose: to soak up spills.

Hugs,
Hermione

Sounds like a lovely evening. I want to like Guiness so much. I love the way it looks, I love the ritual of pouring it (I used to be a bartender and loved putting the shamrock on the top once I mastered not making it look like a huge phallis), etc....but I just don't like the taste. I'm working on it though. Have worked my way up to Smithwicks so far.

Hermione - I would love to have it in my house and see the expression on friends faces. We had a lovely evening thank you. Have you ever tried Guiness Hermione? Thanks.

K's Sweetie - Your very clever I could never master the art of the shamrock. I wont tell you what mine used to look like LOL. Keep trying the Guiness, took me a while to like it. It's much nicer in Ireland than in the UK. Thank you.

Love,
Ronnie

I love the Play doh! :)

Meow said...

Play doh isn't just for kids, I guess! I could probably do that kind of art. Sounds like your visit was fun!

ronnie said...

Sara - Amazing what you can do with it.

Meow - You should have a go and post some for us:)

Thanks both.

Love,
Ronnie

LOL...i used to do such things with my kids play doh when they wern't looking *blush* jeepers. The table is awesome though.

Hermione: soak up spills.... OMG how wasteful...love the table, and the idea of creative play doh use. The glass art would be a conversation starter or stopper, depending on the guests.
Great post
hugs

Love the playdoh ... have some here for my grandkids but I am not very creative! xxxxxxx

Lea said...

I'm a pale ale gal myself, can't do Guinness. Yuck. Now I won't even be able to innocently look at Playdoh anymore. Oh, what the spanko world has done to me...

ronnie said...

Kiwigirl - Lked to have seen some:)

Red - LOL, I think Hermione orginally meant in the markets to soak up any blood spills. Some butchers still use them on their floors.
Daisy - Oh I'm sure you are Daisy

Lea - Yuck for me on the pale ale:)

Appreciate you all stopping by thank you.

Love,
Ronnie

The perfect setting for center piece of this unique wooden table, would be a pliable stinging malacca cane. Would'nt you agree?.
