Good morning, everyone.
Yesterday turned out quite pleasant - not as much sunshine as the early morning had promised, quite cool and a little bit damp at one point, but it was light and calm. No strong winds, thank goodness.
Thank you so much for the lovely comments yesterday - they were so understanding and heartwarming.
The journey home was as trouble free as it usually is and I was home in plenty of time to get everything done before heading off for school. Tuition also went as well as it usually does.
So, all in all, a pleasant day, if rather busy.
Today is pottery day so three cheers. I hope to tidy up the first of my coasters and put it out for firing, make a second one (I think I have decided on same shape, different colours - I think - but maybe not), glaze the pendants that have been fired and - goodness knows what else! Some folk are doing the most fantastic sculpture like things, big and extremely creative. Not within my capability but they are fantastic and it's a joy to watch them work.
Our road is blocked off for three days while the 'micro surface' it - which means patching defects followed by stone dressing (quoting from the letter here). The practical consequence is that those of us who want out cars between nine and four today, tomorrow and/or Thursday need to get our cars out of the road (which is a cul de sac) before they close it off each morning. That should cause havoc with the school traffic, some of which uses our avenue to park and to turn, not to mention some of us having moved out cars the night before and used space that is usually used for dropping off their children.
I need the car today for pottery so I got it out of the road yesterday but I think I'm OK for Wednesday and Thursday so can park on my drive as usual.
After tuition, I will have a basked of ironing to work my way through while watchin telly or dvds. A productive day but not too heavy so I'm looking forward to it.
Now it's time for another coffee.
