After a slow start, with mountain misty rain coming in as I put the first wash on the line, it has been a beautiful warm and sunny day. It has even stayed quite warm after 3pm when the sun went down behind Mynydd y Llan, over the valley.
The traffic rumble has been my work accompaniment today, plus the sound of two grabs in the scrapyard over the valley sorting scrap metal.
Pots went out to finish drying and I threw bigger bowls and vases and really went for it, with four platters out there drying too! I've just about finished the eight bags of clay I brought into the kitchen during the cold weather. I've opened three new bags and made a row of "hump backed bridge" shapes on three boards to dry it enough to throw.
Unfortunately the car failed its MoT test- the handbrake wasn't holding firmly enough...but that was all, and the only advisory that needs dealing with urgently is an oil leak. As the village garage is spotless, I'm a bit ashamed of that...I thought the Oily One had sorted that a while ago.
The Oily One and our local mobile mechanic will be back very soon, then I'll see how soon I can be mobile again.
Now there are two overalls to wash and half a dozen small hand towels...I'm running out of enthusiasm!!
