100 days of lockdown and still finding reasons to be cheerful!!!


Who would have thought back in January that Covid 19 would have the impact on our lives that it has done.
I decided in March to start a blog, chronicling good things that have happened to me that day. Some things were to do with the pottery, others the house or garden, family, and Jubilee Park - but I vowed to stay positive.
So far we've:-
  • painted the pottery inside and out
  • redecorated the conservatory
  • redesigned the porch to use as a utility room
  • grown loads of veg
  • supplied online shops with a few pots
  • been involved in a student's PHD thesis on Iron age pots
  • experimented with new styles of pots and firing techniques
  • removed thistles and docks in Jubilee Park
  • helped reform the willow sculptures at the Park
  • watched the birds around the house
  • read loads of books - the best being "Cupcake" and Madame Saddayako
  • knitted cardigans, hats and shawls
  • learnt how to hold zoom meetings
  • become more IT savvy
  • had lots of barbecues!!!
I have to admit though, I really want to start doing fairs and exhbitions but that seems a long way off so our next project is to paint the showroom in the pottery and get rid of some water damage.
