Spending life in two places is not advisable. Although it does improve one's "packing and planning for two or three days" skills!!
Winter is at last looking Wintery, with all except the valley bottom being powdered white, with increasing thickness as you gain in altitude.
Gardening is restricted to tidying, and increasing the pony manure heaps, while it isn't showering rain or snow. So far it has mainly been rain, but we do still need it as the ground water is low.
Generally the oxbow lakes in the Usk valley fill in September, but they have been dry until a fortnight ago. Places that rely on spring water are having to take care they don't draw too much.
The bisque went well, and today I've waxed the feet and rims of most of the pots in that firing.
The gas is ordered for Monday, weather permitting. If it comes early I'll be able to fire then, but it will probably arrive around luchtime, making it a Tuesday glost firing.
The last Usk Farmers' Mart before christmas is tomorrow, then nothing until the 7th of January.
Here's hoping for some good sales!
I returned from Abergavenny to find an order for mugs on facebook, and an Etsy order waiting to be sent. They are all sent, so now to pack the stock for tomorrow!
