Snow!

I was not even vaguely expecting that when I opened the curtains this morning that the world would have gone even fluffier and whiter than it had been.

This post has a lot of pictures, it’s a long one so do be warned. Not as long though as my walk to work took me this morning. It’s not far, just over a mile and a half, for it to have taken an hour is silly. It was because, of course I’m sure you can guess, I decorated the whole quarter of a mile of the driveway to work. That’s where I got slightly way laid. Otherwise I’d have been there in half an hour. Alan had already been out in the car so he’d left me the two lovely parallel lines from the wheels which just beg to be decorated in between.

It would be rude not to take advantage of such a blank canvas. I do like the idea of slip trailing an enormous slab of clay though…

Paul tells me he’s checking my blog when he gets the chance to see what I’ve been up to when the shifts he’s working mean it’s not a good time of day/night to ring – so hello lovely! Look what you’re missing.There has been an incident with some broken bits of kit out there so a delay while they wait for spares to be hand delivered from the UK. whether this will delay him getting home we don’t yet know but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that all will still go to plan.

My snow clearing elf has been at it again, what a star, he shovelled and gritted a path through the farm yard for me, thanks ever so much Alan. Wonderful.

In between the wonderful walks to work and back I have actually been making some pots too. Christmas presents are underway for the family and some more orders that have come in. I find it so hard to say no to people who are wanting things for Christmas but I have got to the point where now I will try my best but I just can’t promise it. Fingers crossed all.

One of today’s offerings is this pressed dish which I like but as to whether or not it will stay in one piece we shall have to see. It’s the joining bit in the middle I’m not sure about.

The journey home, again utterly wonderful. Thankfully I’d only gotten as far as the kiln shed before I realised that I’d left my house keys at work. It was such a clear night, stars all over the sky and so still that you could hear all sorts of things from miles away. Wonderful.

What makes a mark like this? It wasn’t there this morning and the lines are about 5 or 6″ long and there’s quite a lot of them across the front garden. No idea what they are.

And finally a little film for your amusement.

    Dave I think you have probably solved the problem and it's so much more boring than I'd hoped. Damn. I had hoped that the birds were dancing and making patterns with twigs whilst flying just above the snow purely for my benefit. Oh well, I can dream.PS Thanks for liking the "vegetable dish thing".
