I did have pottery lessons when I was expecting Jose. My little sister was doing Pottery as her skill for the Duke of Edinburgh award. It got to the stage at 9 months gone I could no longer reach the wheel. The potter was called Midge, she had two sons called Hamish and Jed. I still have some of her bowls. I'd love to know if she was still potting. So now I don't have to think of stuff to make for 6 weeks, I can relax and enjoy starting my new job, making some stuff to sell at a couple of Christmas Craft Fayres and hopefully FINISH some stuff!!!!! eg. this felted camera case.....
But then again, I just happened to stumble across this blanket in the Charity shop (the one where I went for the job!!) So I came home and shoved it in the washing machine so it is already felted and waiting to be 'bagged!!'
Last night my head was in a bit of a mess, it gets that way sometimes, well often actually. I used to walk and talk to Daz. We chat away, she'd just listen, look up at me with those wonderful brown eyes that I miss so very much and we'd think of a way to cope. (I know you must all think I am nuts!) I haven't felt that I could do the same with Lil, until last night. Jose had a friend to stay and it was so lovely to hear the girls chatting, they cooked dinner and I though i would take Lil for a quick walk and leave them to it. But I just walked, through fields in the dark to West Bay. (funny how a few years ago I would have been really scared, but now it doesn't bother me at all) The Moon was wonderful. (I can't work out how to stay still enough to get a good night time photo!)
It was just what I needed. If I didn't need to be up early, I think we would have gone and sat on the beach. I kind of wish we had. It was so peaceful.
I have been contacted on this 'Face book thing' by a girl (well lady now) I used to got to school with. She shares the same Birthday as me. She was so nice at school. Not one of the stab you in the back bitchy girls that so many were like. Debbie was tall like me, with this wonderful auburn hair. Always smiley. Funny what you remember about people. Why do we loose touch with the friends who we had at school. I know there is boyfriends, jobs that get in the way but it is silly really isn't it. It doesn't take much to keep in touch.
I used to have a front lawn........ Now I have happy free range growing chicks!
Being watched by Marmalade from the safety of the chair!! You should see the Mum hen when he gets too close!!
And Socks, my middle cat, showing off. Even though she is the other side of 15, she can still balance on the gate!
So I am now going to get on with some jobs as Jose is at my Mum's doing shed loads of last minute homework. Too many distractions here! Jasper is with his Dad (as my house is SO boring!!) So I shall tidy, sort and put away. I also have a birthday card to make, an address to find and a sorry for itself blight ridden poly tunnel to sort out!
