Thanks for popping in. It is so wet today and rainy here today, which is not good for Tina. She has a substantial leak in her roof at home, and the water is pouring straight into the house. I spoke to her this morning and she was pretty distressed. Who wouldn’t be?! Blimey! I remember water pouring into our kitchen at Christmas – I tried to laugh it off, because we had a house full of friends and family, and at least we could just turn off the water at the mains. But Tina can’t stop the rain. She’s got it under control actually. Well, she’s got loads of buckets and water catchers until help arrives. Her help must be coming in on horseback from the Outer Hebrides too, because he’s definitely taking his sweet time getting there. Dave would have gone up there to help without question, but he had to drive up to Port Sunlight for the exhibition. So all in all, it’s a shambles, and it’s still raining.
She’s got 2 hours of TV tomorrow, too! I called her this morning after I saw the watery pictures on Facebook, fully expecting her to cancel, but she was adamant that the show must go on. In fact, she said, that the first thing she did when the water started coming in, was to grab all her prep fo the shows and get them to dry land! Now that’s what I call dedication! Tina calls it escape !!
Do you remember the last time Tina was on HOCHANDA, she launched those lovely Embroidery Groovi plates, which promptly sold out in next to no time? Well, brother Steve has been busy on nights all week, so – as things stand right now – she is bringing them back tomorrow, at 10am and 2pm.
The artwork that Tina has created with this clever concept is outstanding. Really very beautiful. Tune in tomorrow and take a look.
Here is a downloadable guide for you too.
Anyway, please join me in wishing Tina well. This too shall pass – it will be repaired, the carpet will dry out, things will get back to normal again – but boy oh boy! This one’s certainly testing her nerves!
Love & Hugs,
