Off to Rufford

My word it's been a busy day today, starting with a beautiful walk to work through the lanes. It hasn't rained for ten days now, in fact it's been scorching every day.


I spent today trying to sort out my pots for Earth and Fire. I always struggle when it comes to setting up my stand, so in a fit of panic, I rang my friend Heather and asked her if she'd come and help me. She's really good at that sort of thing and sorted it right out brilliantly.I'm taking these shelves and some big lumps of wood that I've borrowed from my mate Cookie.

So Off to Rufford in the morning. Nic's coming to collect me first thing, with a van that we've hired between us. I'm looking forward to the journey and a chance fo a proper good natter with my old chum Nic. It's going to be great to see some of my other pottery buddies when we get there too.

These are a few snapshots of some of the pots I'll be taking.
I had to dash home this evening to go to rehearsals for the play that I'm in. It opens a week tomorrow, (slightly worrying that none of us know our lines yet). After that I had to go back to work and have spent the rest of the evening packing pots, not long home, so ready for bed, it's been a looooooong day.
So there we go. I'll be away now until Monday, but I'll post some pics next week from the show. Have a lovely weekend all, bye for now.
