Ahh, and now I can see, my workshop now has a wonderful huge window letting in loads of light and the sunshine too. I’ve put the wheel up by it at the moment, it’s lovely. I’ve a new bird feeder to get up outside this window too. It might get too toasty in the summer to be sat there throwing but I’ll deal with that as and when it happens. Thank you joiners and H and A it’s fab!
I had a jaunt over the weekend, you know in that spare time that I have at the moment. I popped down to Devon, thanks Alex for driving the chunk from the north west down to the sunny south. I haven’t spent much time with Alex since I was his student at uni but we went merrily off to visit Doug (we were supposed to be planning our workshops for April but we got waylaid by many other pottery related things). What a few days. As always when I go down there it was great, good company and good pot talk and a good boost of inspiration and you know how a change of scene does the brain good every now and again.
So we fired the kiln and talked pots and drank tea and watched pottery films and walked in the fields and looked at pictures of pots and played skittles and made pots and all in all had a lovely time, thanks boys.
So back home to Paul who will have been relieved to have had a few days without me wittering about pots, and the new window in the workshop and the big list of things to do but with a clearer head and a more focused plan and the sunshine and spring. Can it be better?
