Good morning, everyone. It's a cold and frosty morning here in mid-Essex and the heating is well up. Everyone's saying about some expected snow next week but fingers crossed. Finally I'm getting too old for snow! Well, too old to be excited about it anyway although I do love to watch it falling.
Yesterday was a very busy day. Swimming was lovely and I'm looking forward to going again tomorrow morning. I also had a wander around Matalan and I'm so glad I did because there was a nice, warm longer coat (longer than a jacket, I mean), showerproof and warmly lined and with a hood. I tried one on - too large. Woo hoo! I anded up with a (whispers it so as not to tempt fate) size 12. Blimey!!!
I got it, obviously!
Once home, I dashed around doing this, that and the other until it was time for Knitter Knatter Club. It was the first week so everyone was learning but great fun and they all seemed to pick it up well and without too many holes.
After my time helping out in FS, it was home, James, to look through my planning before tuition and after tuition I whizzed round to Beth's to pick up an old shirt of Alex's and to have a chat.
I slept well last night!
This morning, I am feeling pretty nervous because it's the first session in a nine week pottery course for beginners. I signed up for it last autumn and it seemed a good idea at the time as it's something I have always wanted to have a bash at.
The bumph says, and I quote:
"From the basic techniques of handbuilt pottery and decorative glazing methods to experimenting with more advanced techniques in pottery for all could be just for you. Create your own unique, wonderful artefacts."
Ha ha ha!
However, right now I am wondering if I've bitten off more than I can chew. We will see.
So that's why I needed the old shirt - I don't have any old clothes because of losing all the weight and I have a feeling that my kitchen apron is not adequate to the job.
After that, Beth will be round and then I have some tuition. Another busy day really so I'm glad I had a lazy weekend! xx
