Sunday – and a little Therapy.

Sunday – and a little Therapy.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Was tidying away all the prep boxes from Friday’s TV show earlier, and came across the Dandelion card I had cut out, that was on offer in the Super Saver. CLICK HERE I LOVE this design. Many of you may already have it because it was a previous Fresh Cut Die Club Die. A really, really superb one, illustrated by our friend Mel Turner. Anyway, I went off at a tangent, and decided to…

Back to work after a weekend in Cornwall

Back to work after a weekend in Cornwall

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Back in the Clarity saddle today, after spending a few days down in Cornwall, to pay our respects at dear Pat Hosking’s funeral. To be honest, it really was much more a beautiful celebration of her life than a sad occasion of her death. She had left strict instructions with the family that this was how she wanted it. And that was how it went. The Helston Town band was in the tiny chapel,…

A Walk – and last orders, ladies and gentlemen!

A Walk – and last orders, ladies and gentlemen!

Hi there Thanks for popping in today. After a hectic but fruitful day on telly yesterday, I decided to kick back today, take it easy. I just don’t ping back like I used to! And I am learning that it’s ok to do nothing. So I made breakfast and did a couple of loads of laundry. Yep. That’s me doing nothing! Just not possible to sit still! The sun was shining for the first time in a while, so Dave…

It’s ok to change your mind.

It’s ok to change your mind.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Yesterday I made a plan in my head to do pottery today. All day. This morning I spent an hour deciding what I actually want to make. Tiles, bowls, another element of Dad’s totem pole, a wall hanging for the kitchen – so many ideas! Got dressed up warm, all set to weather the elements outside and in the not so toasty garage. Cleaned both bathrooms while I was whizzing around upstairs, aired the…

Winds of Change

Winds of Change

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How’s the New Year shaping up in your neck of the woods? It’s been raining and blowing a hoolie here for days. Wain, wain, wain. I’ve been in my artroom, (or should I say artwomb?) prepping for Sunday’s TV show, and quite enjoying my own company. I got caught up in a Gelpress session, which was thoroughly enjoyable. You know how it goes. You’re supposed to be making the bed, you go to hang…

New Year’s Day

New Year’s Day

Happy New Year to you! Thanks for popping in. I can‘t stop long – got la famille coming for roast lamb. The leg’s in the Aga. Tick. I’ve been looking up whether you can use baking potatoes to make mash, and apparently it’s a thumbs up! Who knew?! This may be the best yet. Steam them, they say. So I peeled one, then thought of you, dried my hands and came to wish you health and happiness in 2024 –…

Hi there Thanks for popping in on this, the last day of the old year. And what a year it’s been. I for one shall be very glad to move into the new year. Am actually happy to be drawing a line under this one, and cautiously excited about 2024. How about you? I know, I know. Tomorrow’s just another day. But somehow we have to make use of the calendar, to actually conclude this year, finish it, so that…

Christmas Eve Eve…

Christmas Eve Eve…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. How’s it going? I have to tell you – I’ve had the BEST couple of days! Yesterday, I went into work early, and a few of us had a little end-of the-year meeting. It felt so special. Don‘t know why. I just had this overwhelming sense of goodness, pure and simple. Spending an hour with a group of hardworking, loyal and kind people, all invested in Clarity, all bright and talented, all ready to…

Design of the Week – back to the beginning…

Design of the Week – back to the beginning…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Sincere apologies for not blogging for a while – there’s a lot going on here, and I just seem to run out of hours! But I promise to try harder in the New Year! The other thing is, I don’t believe in spreading misery, and unless I can be positive, I’d best keep quiet. 2023 has been a challenge, there’ve been a few dark days, and on those days I tend to retreat to…
