this might explain the next post ... it is crafty based too but involves tiles - thankfully not actually tiling and plumb lines and all that malarky.  I'm no good at that side of things - but painting them.  not something I'd thought about doing but on a recent trip away to celebrate Mr P's BIG birthday (shhhh!) the kid's had a chance to get crafty.  Using porcelain paints and a plain white tile (I guess bought from any local DIY type shop) the finished pieces look really lovely.  Four spongy corners were added under it so they will make very pretty coasters (and a great idea for presents for granddad and many others).
