Thanks for joining me. Whistle stop tour of Africa today!
Seems like absolutely ages ago since we spent a week there, doesn’t it. Head on over to the Claritymatters blog, for a guided tour…
Me? Well, I decided to have a clear out in the SHAC-Shack. Looks like a bloodybomzitit! Trouble is, it always gets worse before it gets better, right? And right now, as I write, I am sitting waist high in boxes and black sacks and years n years of stuff that I will never use, and never find even if I wanted to use! So I’m playing Needitnotsureuseditinthelastyearnobinit. And that doesn’t say Nob innit!! It’s very cathartic, this clearing out. Before you have a knipschen, thinking I am binning perfectly good ink pads and stamps and paper and card and stuff, there is a lovely local lady who runs a super craft club for the local youth, and others too. It’s all voluntary, so anything worth keeping, anything I have in duplicate, I am giving to them. Just got to wade my way through it all.
I think a proper clear out is good for the head too, don’t you? There’s so much to consider right now, so much to think about. So a clean SHAC-Shack will be a good starting place next Monday. I may even rearrange the shelves behind me, and make them a little more arty, a little more colourful, and a little less sterile. It’s not a holiday, I know. Well, not one I would save up for!! But whatever. I have to stay active, get out of my old washing machine head, and stick with the hands. So I may as well sort this shitpit out!!
Jigsaw puzzles and a clear out. It doesn’t get better than that!
Hang on though! Oh yes it does!! Pottery this afternoon! Woohoo!! Hallelujah!! It was a bit different for sure. We had to wear masks the whole time, and my specs kept steaming up, which was rubbish, because I couldn’t see what I was doing. But then I looked around me, and most of the ladies’ glasses were steamed up too! Hahahaha. It was just good to be back in the fold with Susanna and the ladies. Not the same. Just different. Will take a little adjusting, but hey. We have to work with what we’ve got.
Work in progress; I’ve got a great coiled vessel in my mind’s eye. It is goinf to be so beautiful if it works out! The perfect distraction…more will be revealed.
And on Friday, another pottery treat – on the wheel this time. So I shall get in a little early, sort this coiled one out once it has dried out a little – and then …
It’s a throwdown!!
Haven’t been on the wheel since February, so this’ll be fun. Expecially if the glasses steam up!! I was thinking. Maybe I could wear a snorkel? Hahahaha!! Or my motorbike crash helmet? Let’s face it. I’m not going to be swimming with the sharks or blazing a trail through the Kentish countryside on my Harley any time soon….
Time to crack on with…. the wasgij. You’ve got to know how to have fun, haven’t you!!! xxx
Love and hugs
