What I have been mostly doing lately ....
... is getting involved at Gloucestershire Arts and Crafts Centre. Here I am in front of my pots in the shop. I have cards elsewhere and a few smaller wallhangings displayed above the pots.
It's all very exciting getting the centre going and it's been a fair bit of work for many of us. As I am going to be responsible for much of the admin, there's been lots to do getting systems organised. Once things are up and running it will all take less time but I have been busy, to say the least.
Today I should have been able to make pots. I'm about a month behind with making my own work and not altogether sure what I will do about it. But in the meantime we have both been struck by a Dreaded Lurgy. Actually, it's only a bad cold, but I am certainly under the weather and not up to anything very physical. It's most frustrating. It's not only a matter of getting behind but also of 'feeding the inner self'. I need to be making some of the time for my own general well-being. Going into the pottery to work feels very restorative these days and I miss it when I can't get in there.
Additionally, I have been living like a hermit lately. The lurgy struck just when I had planned to become a little more sociable and invite people round and go out with others. I'm certain none of them want my germs so once again I'm seeing nobody much, which I'm not happy about.
Hang on in there, folks. I haven't forgotten you all. I'm sure that one day I'll be back to my usual sociable self. In the mean time, I hope this blog is better than nothing and will try to write more frequently.
