You know I'm feeling better when…
You know I’m starting to feel more myself when I start taking pictures again. I’ve been walking up and down the road a bit the last week, I still can’t believe how much impact (no pun intended) a relatively minor (in the grand scheme of things) accident can have on all the things you take so much for granted. Last week I could walk oh all of about a quarter of a mile, if I was lucky, before my legs went to jelly and my arms detached from their sockets. It was messy and Paul got sick of having to pick my arms up off the floor for me. Anyway this afternoon I took myself out for a walk down to Threave it’s not far, a National Trust place and it has a good cafe so my reward of course was a cup of tea and a scone, very civilised. I met a charming elderly lady there who’s on holiday from Manchester who now knows my life story after questioning me in depth and I know all about her and her grand children and the caravan at Sandgreen.
The cow are ever so inquisitive, but their tongues are really rough, just as I took this picture this wee one licked the camera and my arm. Nice.
Here are a few more images from Germany for you too.
This is Tim and Clare looking at the pots of a Dutch man who lives in France whose name I can’t remember. Rather nice pots, slipware
, some quite gentle and some blatantly mad but good mad. His actually stand was lovely too, very attractive and showed the pots of beautifully.
Stephan Bang regularly does the shows in Britain, salt glaze, very lovely forms, very neat and just so. Lovely pots.
Again I can’t remember the name of the people on this stand but it was slip trailed and it made me laugh so there you go.
This was the stand of Charlotte Bohmer
, she lives in the town, Pollie
and Garry stayed with Charlotte and her family while we were there.
I think you have had all my Germany photos now, I’ll just have to be fit enough to go back to work soon or else what will I show you next? There are probably some more pot pictures that I haven’t shared yet so I’ll have a check. In the meantime the sun is shining and it’s pizza for dinner.
PS I should have mentioned this earlier but this weekend if you are in the Nottingham area is the Earth and Fire show at Rufford Country Park
. It’s always a great place to go and have a wander around, loads of potters to see and a beautiful place to boot. I’m not showing there this year (probably a good thing in hindsight after the last couple of weeks) but maybe next year, we’ll just have to wait and see. It is definitly
worth a visit if you are around, it started today and is on till sunday
