Testing the camcorder.

I've put together a quick video of a typical evening after work - sorry it's very amatuerish!

Get in, sort tea, help with homework and piano practise and if I'm lucky get out into a cold dark studio.

Well, that's how the studio appears in the clip - it actually seems much lighter when I'm in there. I think if I'm going to make video clips in there I'm going to need better lights. I also think it needs decorating!

I seem to be fussing a bit over this bowl - maybe it's the pressure of being on film!

On the up!

Well I definitely feel like last weeks glitch is behind me and I'm really looking forward to what the next few weeks hold. It's all thanks to a dose of good spring weather and some new blogging friends!

I've been able to get out into my garden and me and Anna (daughter) spent a few hours planting a variety of veg seeds. We then went to a local farm and got some advice on keeping hens, which we'll be getting in the next few weeks. Anna's beside herself with excitement about this!
I've also started to get my head around this blogging lark and have to say a big thanks to the people who've been in touch and shared their experience of making and selling pottery.

Today I also managed to get my video camcorder working, so tomorrow I hope to get a clip of my studio and veg patch and maybe get back to throwing something.

Here's some photos of the last few days. Come on spring!
