Today it is 6 weeks since the little incident with the van. Today is the first day I’ve ridden my bike to work and enjoyed the ride rather than spending the journey trying not to over stretch or tweak my neck. Today is the first day I’ve actually had a good bought of throwing again – ok probably too good a bout but it didn’t hurt until I’d finished which is better than hurting as soon as I start. The consultant told me it’d be 6 weeks at least till I started to feel properly ‘normal’ (well as normal as is normal to me) and I hoped he was over exaggerating but it seems he was right. I think I’ll still need to just watch out but blimey it’s good to be back. I threw some little Humbug mugs (orders) and some 1 and half pound jugs (a couple were ordered at Spring Fling) and then some mugs to pierce (I did get them pierced too) and a couple of puzzle jugs as I haven’t made them in ages and I just felt the need. I also threw a “thing” which may or may not make it in time to be my entry for the Potfest competition. The chances are slim but I’ll have a go. Yikes Potfest is coming fast, need to have set up my stand by a week today, I wish I’d been able to make all the new things that I wanted to make and I’d really hoped to have gotten the kiln finished and fired before this show but hey ho, it’ll come in time.
