Tomorrow is June 1st and it's T minus 4 days until the Summer Holidays. Ultra-excitement. Unfortunately the weather has not been great today (a mild understatement...), but like every other Irish person, the 2 or 3 days of sun we have thus experienced this year has meant I have stocked up well on bikinis, shorts, maxi-dresses, sun hats, factor 50+ suncream, new sunglasses and various other sun-related paraphernalia in preparation for the blistering heat wave that is no doubt due to descend any day now (Friday would be good for me, please and thanks).
Further preparations for summertime-and-the-living-is-easy are afoot. In preparation for the good weather, guitar skills are being brushed up on, driving skills are being increased and the cost of wetsuits is being investigated (sure, it's the summer, I might as well take up surfing). Most importantly barbeques are being planned. Oh yes. With delicious items.
Today I decided to make some tea light holders to add to my summer items; every barbeque runs on into the dark of the evening, candles for the outdoors will definitely be needed in addition to music and fire and beers.
Taking some empty yoghurt pots (glass, not plastic - melty melty), wire and beads, I strung beads onto some wire.
Then I wrapped these around the rims of the pots and twisted the wire closed. I made another piece to use as a handle and there you go! A rather pretty pair I think!
