A few months ago I had been bitten by the creative bug (LOL) and after I'd been to one of the Steiner School open days, I quite liked how the school had mosaic spheres around the place in the gardens - some poking out of the bushes.
....... and there it sat for nearly two months waiting to be grouted.
I was embarrassed. If it wasn't for wet weather, sick kids, sick inlaws and not having my driving licence, what should have taken maybe a few days became a bloody saga.
Yes, I finally got it grouted but I lost a few little tiles on the face and front leg. The right leg only has 3 claws which really annoys me every time I look at it. By the time I got up there to grout it, I forgot to bring up the spare tiles and glue. Also, I didn't have the petrol for a 40km round trip to go back and get it. It had to be done that day as we had the school fare the next weekend. I could only get it done on the weekends. It was too hard during the week as I need someone to watch the kids but it got done, finally. I was amazed that the rose quartz stay on.
It puts a smile on my face seeing the children touching and playing around it.
