I’ve not posted on here for a while but that doesn’t mean I’ve not been working away on challenges.
So here is an update – for my benefit because I’m fairly certain no one else reads this.
Drumming – lessons with George are weekly and very enjoyable. I try to practice in the spare room as often as I can, but find myself inhibited by the lovely neighbours – ‘we heard you drumming yesterday Kate, sounds really good’ oh dear – for certain sure I know it doesn’t sound good. But I’m enjoying it so much! I just wait for them to go out!
Pottery – I’m on my third session of pottery – I’m getting better results – as you might expect – and I’m much happier with what I’m making. I spend a lot of time on the wheel because I want to learn how to throw pots of a consistent size. Not happened yet, but there is progress!
Healthy life – oh dear. This one is not going so well, but largely due to my left foot. Consultant appointments are depressing – they just want to do surgery and I don’t – I’ve reached a bit of an impasse with this one. But Eric’s challenge is coming up soon – ten mile walk along the Sefton Coastal Path later this month.
The ‘juice for 60 days’ has begun with a five day juice fast. It’s easier to do this in the spring/summer when the produce is cheaper in the shops or I can grow it.
The writing is going on in the background – not poetry so much as little prose pieces – observations – all written on my typewriter! Really enjoying that!
I finished everything that was half made. I can say with hand on heart that there is nothing unfinished lurking in a bag, drawer, box whatever. That feels good!
The bee club have monthly meetings at the apiary in Wylam. Not made one of these yet due to other stuff getting in the way.
I got hens! Very happy with my hens. I’ve also got a borrowed incubator with Indian runner duck eggs in – due out in about a week – fingers crossed!!!
That’ll do for now.
