glazing day

Today was spent in alchemy!
Mixing glaze tests, and doing a small tile test of three tubs of the same glaze, that are slightly different....so this should confirm what they are!!

For some unknown reason I have six various tubs, all about a gallon/5kg size....and all with the lids missing! Just when I need a couple...

The Carpenter has started sorting his finances.

The Oily One has taken the washing machine motor apart, slightly....the incentive of having to do washing by hand!! The very small part has been ordered, and its arrival greatly anticipated!

It was definitely wet and unfriendly weather this morning. As the low pressure lifted, it has dried and cooled again, but at least the higher pressure should give a better firing.

So the skills learnt whilst taking toys apart as a kid do come in handy later on in life!

At least the is now putting things back together now!
I remember coming home from a bike ride when he was 13 and he had stayed at home by himself....and mended the car's central locking system.
