Oh no - poor lad!
he's already demanding tea i just sat down to mine, and he's already finished his, think its time to move the kettle into the lounge!!!! he's not enjoying it! (well actually i think he is a little) but the novelty WILL wear off REALLY QUICKLY! ~ thing that worries me is coping because i cant just nip off in the car to get a break like mark does when hes mobile, i just gotta be careful with how much i do! xxxxxx
poor mark has spiral fractured his leg and is in plaster from his toes up to his arse
i cant get out ~ so, sorry about post anyone whos waiting for any art from me, will do it as soon as i can get a lift out etc...
i'll be back in hospital soon so i do hope someone will look after him for me!!! he's no trouble, honest:p
Wow! That was truly awesome! A wonderful Glastonbury crowd, meeting so many old friends, a venue of helpful people, a light show that had me so mesmorised I almost forgot to come in my cues(!), the refain "no surrender!" raising the roof, a vast amount of hugging and cider you could stand a spoon up in! I'm still buzzing from it. Wow! Flipping far out!
Special thanks go to Kelly and Mark for putting the entire band up for two nights in their beautiful house in Westbury and to 'P' who came in with two days notice as replacement drummer with no rehearsal ... sorry my spelling is all ovet the place ... about to jump in the shower or watch Family Guy. Erg.
The Assembly Rooms have invited us back sometime in the Autumn (no date yet) but if anyone wants us to play up their way please PM me with a suitable local venue.
Thanka all the UKH people who made this weekend happen.

Oh I hope it lasts the firing. When i played with clay we just fired and glazed; what's burnishing about?
burnishing is where you rub the clay with a smooth 'thing' pebble, spoon, tool which kind of creates a natural glaze effect without glazing dont think it seals the clay for liquids but it makes it pretty! v v smooth! and tactile xxx
come over and play sarah! and beth and any one else who wants a go on tha wheel, it is a kick manual xxx come visit! xxx
wow Kel, what a gorgeous shape and colour!
thankyou hun! ~ wonder what will happen when its fired!?! i havent used this clay before, just got a cheap bag to play with, its schools clay! ~ hope i can glaze it, all good practise though ~ its lighter than the photo but not too much, burnishing it makes me think of bog wood! xxx
hangy birdy with copper legs and beads ~ finished!
i cant get a decent photo of this, and im too tired to keep trying but its so much yummier in life!
i got my potters wheel today! it needs some work but i managed to kick throw a pot with a little spout and mark made an ashtray! im so chuffed!
(the wheel was a lovely £20 bargain!)
Ahhh, that reminds me of a friend called Belinda I had at infant school - every morning and afternoon her grandad took her to and from school on his bike while he pushed it along

Kari and Samy they are just beautiful.
Just to let you know I probably won't be online much for a little while. My dear old cat Kali, who has reached the ripe old age of 17 or 18 ( I can't remember) has now got kidney failure. She hasn't got long to go, so we are all very sad. She is comfortable though so thats the main thing and I am home with her everyday. Have been trying to draw, but only rubbish is coming out, not surprisingly I can't focus for very long.
Will come back as soon as I can:(
Thinking of you beautiful xxxxxxxxxxxx we are so sorry xxxxxxxxxxx
massive hugs xxxxx
and that is absolutely gorgeous kel!
those wax pastels are brilliant aren't they? you have done amazing things with them!
thanks babe! ~ have you seen the price of a set of 126
oh found them a BIT cheaper here! haha
i would rather like 126 colours!!!!!:p
