Happy Daddy

I had a lovely surprise this evening, I'll tell you about it in a moment.

Here's a little video I made today. Different Dave came by and did a bit more wiring on the blunger, which is almost up and running - it just needs a new switch and then I'll be able to blunge lots of lovely Hollyford clay, from the pile in the field outside of the workshop - it might even be working tomorrow - exciting!


I'm making pots for my web site still, which will be launched on 8th December - also exciting!

But much much more exciting, was the surprise of Luke coming down the stairs at tea time this evening, having secretly caught the train home from college. He'd been hiding in his bedroom, unbeknown to all of us, sending his brother confusing text messages, before Joe rumbled him and brought him downstairs, both of them grinning ear to ear. We've just been to the pub for a drink, I can't tell you how lovely it was to see them with their friends, playing pool together. I'm a happy, happy daddy tonight :)

That blunger is a beautiful monster! When it's working you will wonder how you ever managed without it.
