Well, that's me back home from the big party weekend. It was great fun!
Lots of people about, no trouble at all, huge fireworks display, lots of decorated houses flats and shops, catching up with old pals etc.
We won a commendation for our flat window display "UNDER THE DRINK" which represented what you might find under the water at the harbour there!
I rigged up a large glass dish of water and shone several bright spotlights through it, then pointed a big fan at the waters surface to make it
ripple. This gives a ripply under water effect (like you would see in a swimming pool?) I then placed various fish, starfish, rocks, sand etc on the
bottom of the window display to make it look like the sea bed, and randomly dangled some fish from threads which then "swam" about as they caught the
breeze from the fan!
The main focus of the display were 2 skeletons! depicting very "local" pastimes, cycling and Booze cruising!!
Here's a few quick snaps to give you a wee taster...
The window display was partially dismantled by the time I remembered to take the photos!! but I hope it gives you an idea of what it was about.
Also watched the Rugby world cup on the TV.... Scotland Beat the USA on Sunday! and now sit top of their group, but they still have to play South
Africa (the group favourites). Wales beat England, so I'm sure Jane and Tsu will be very happy and Cody will be in mourning!
Hope you all had a great weekend... I'll try and catch up with the rest of the thread now....
Happy Birthday to all the Birthday boys and girls I seem to have missed! (It's my niece Fiona's birthday today too!
