Something new.

Llandudno West Shore.

For my birthday (Back in January) my daughter bought me an hour's session on a potters wheel.This is something I have never done before so Idecided Ihad better go and do it before the voucher ran out.Gill was lovely and very patient with me but was thrown a little when I told her I was left handed.It was very much geared up for right handers.I had a great time and got better as the hour went on.I produced three little pots which are now being fired and I pick them up in three weeks time.Photos then.I did get very dirty.It was good job I had brought a change of top as I was picking my granddaughter up from school and taking her to ballet.

We have been to the theatre this week.We saw Barkin',a black comedy by Frank Vickery.It was very good and I have such admiration for the actors who are probably paid peanuts.We go again on thursday to see Dancing at Lunghnasa.

Yesterday,as the sun was shining ,we ventured to Llandudno and had a walk by the sea,had our lunch out and visited an art gallery.Of course by the time we got there the sun had gone in.I did take some photos but they are very dark.The photos should have appeared here not above!!
What else have I done this week.Three coffee dates with different friends.I have also joined a gardening club .


  1. That sounds fun ... I haven't done pottery since I was at school! Look forward to seeing the results. I've been trying to get to the new gallery in Llandudno for weeks now ... each time we intended to go the weather was just awful. It's still on my list!
    Have a good week!
    Love Kathy xxx

  2. I'd love a go at the pottery - you have had a really busy week. xx

  3. the sun might have gone in but that sea front certainly looks appealing. I love holiday towns out of season. Its how I used to enjoy spending my winters. x

  4. I love Llandudno - my sister was there weekend just gone for her wedding anniversary. The pottery class sounds good fun - I've watched people throwing pots down at the Gladstone Museum but never had a go myself:)

  5. I'd love to have a go at pottery as well - I want to make myself a yarn bowl to stop my balls of yarn from dancing around the living room :)

    I took my mum to wet felting tuition for her birthday last week and we had so much fun. It was just us two with our tutor and she was brilliant. Not cheap but oh so worth it.

  6. Oh lovely LLandudno, such a beautiful place, especially at this time of year.

  7. I love the seaside whatever time of year - it is constantly changing! Must go over to Llandudno for a visit.

    Pottery sounds like fun - I love workshops, it is one reason the Embroiderers' Guild is so good - there is always something new to try out at a class.
