Off to my second pottery class tonight. We will be able to see if what we made last week made it through the firing process. Pictures will follow if they did.
I am also hopeful, that tonight, I might get to try throwing a pot, and by that I do not mean tossing a lump of china across the room. I want to try using the potters wheel to throw a pot. If I make anything resembling a pot I show you in my next post. I am hopeful, but, I have been told it takes many years to become really proficient so don't hold your breath.

All Wrapped Up For Christmas 2016

I know I promised to get blogging again but sadly other things got in the way so I failed to keep the promise, however, New Year, new promise. I am going to try and do a post at least once every two weeks. 

Just thought to begin with I'd post some things we got up to over Christmas and New Year.

Birthday Weekend

Though my birthday was on the Thursday I managed with a bit of careful organisation to claim the whole bank holiday weekend. We did shopping in Bluewater on my actual birthday, Hampton Court on the Friday, St Albans on the Saturday,  the Tower of  London on the Sunday and finally, the Olympic Park at Stratford on the Monday. A great time was had by all.

Kew Gardens

On Sunday we took a trip to Kew Gardens, it was great. I love gardens and all things gardening so it was just the place to visit on a sunny Sunday in August. They have been working hard in the gardens so since my last visit there were several new things to see, including the hive and the bridge. Sadly the temperate house is still not complete but can't wait to see it when its done.
