New York New York

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Thought we’d take a whistlestop trip to New York. Here are a few snapshots from our last visit to see Grace in 2019. Check out the mural… Here’s a skyline of Manhattan from the water, …and here’s the lady herself. Coming into port, and the Freedom Tower literally towers above you. It’s a powerful reminder of what man is totally capable of. Destroying and rebuilding alike. New York . A fascinating place. Packed with…

I say, I say! What’s so funny?

I say, I say! What’s so funny?

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Happy Easter Bank Holiday Monday! Lovely day. Walked out in the countryside with Dave, his daughter and her family. Haven’t seen Laura, Trevor or the grandchildren for months. Those kids they do grow! Young Evie is so bright, and Oliver just laughs and smiles. Precious. We went to their neck of the woods, to the Wild Garlic Woods, and saw lots of new things. The wild garlic is just coming now. We rubbed the…

TV Today!

Happy Easter Sunday! I hope the sun is shining where you are, and that you are enjoying this Easter weekend?

I hope you can join me on The Craft Store (Hochanda) for a couple of hours between 2 and 4 pm. I shall be taking you on a whistle stop tour of London,…

Upstairs Downstairs…

Upstairs Downstairs…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Remember the original Upstairs Downstairs TV Series? Back in the 70’s it was on a Sunday evening as I recall. …it was always on in our house! Mum loved it! Well, Upstairs Downstairs has taken on a whole new meaning here in our little house! Either I’m upstairs in the garage – SHAC SHAC – the Clarity Studio, or I’m Downstairs in the garage – the Pottery Studio! And today I’ve been up and…

Silence is Golden

Silence is Golden

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Good Friday. Call me ignorant, but I’ve never really felt that Good Friday was particularly Good or something to celebrate. Good for who?! Perhaps Good has a different meaning than the one I’m familiar with, because Dark Friday or Black Friday feels more accurate to me. But hey – what do I know. So I kept busy with my hands today. Worked in silence at my pottery wheel most of the day. Threw some…

We have a winner! Or five!

We have a winner! Or five!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. I have been going through all your quiz answers, to find a winner for the £100 Gift Voucher. So many of you guessed almost all of them right, like 29 out of 30, it was ridiculous! And you didn’t all get the same one wrong either! Not at all! It was very random. And one could argue that many of the answers weren’t INcorrect – they just weren’t what I had written down ……

A whole Bunch of Daisies!

A whole Bunch of Daisies!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Spent the day with my parents today. Took Mum to Macknades – a very posh Greengrocers / Delicatessen / Fine Food store in Faversham. Fabulous store. Even if you go there adamant you aren’t going to spend much – you do. Lovely drive through the Kentish countryside to get there. I do love the magnolias in full bloom right now! Superb, aren’t they? Blimming traffic though! Everyone and their brother was on the A2…

One Year on…..

One Year on…..

Hi there Thanks for popping in. One year on, and where are we? Grateful to be anywhere actually. It’s certainly been a year to remember. So, on a brighter note, today is our one year SHAC SHAC birthday. 192 sessions of hanging out together, doodling, colouring, drawing, laughing, crying – yep it’s been quite a journey. And it ain’t over yet! To spread some love and put a smile on your faces, we started sending out random SHAC inspired Pinky…

A Little Pottery Giveaway

A Little Pottery Giveaway

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Thoroughly enjoying a weekend off here. Actually, my idea of a weekend off is hardly what YOU might call a weekend off ! I have spend hours clearing away Friday’s TV wreckage (it always looks like a big Bomzitit after a busy TV show !) I’ve also been prepping, writing, planning, blogging and preparing for tomorrow’s SHAC. I’ve been cleaning, doing laundry, changing the bedding, blitzing the pottery studio to make room for the…
