new outlet

Today I delivered 25 pots to St. Ffagans pottery, within the National History Museum. You can see the pottery 1m 10s into the embedded video of the museum.

I'm back making sheep- bodies and finishing today- but I could do with time off from everything at the moment..the cough and cold has returned AGAIN. I think Friday is free, so that could be a day to visit the doctor, if there is a free appointment time...don't hold your breath!! I know it started as "just another virus", but I don't think coughing up Little Green Aliens is good!!
The weather turning cold has not helped because people in the village have been lighting their fires to keep warm. As many are retired miners, there will be the matter of a free coal allowance....and coal fires mean sulphurous smoke....cough, cough!

Tomorrow is saltkiln packing day. I'm looking forward to that- a day in nice clean air!!
I think we'll be firing on Saturday, which is forecast to be the driest of the next few days.

Green= bacterial infection, antibiotics could be useful.

indeed. As would finding out why this exact spot feels rough a lot of the time.
I'm wondering if childhood Whooping cough (pertussis) caused a weakness?
One needs to go back repeatedly, but if you do you run the risk of being labelled a timewaster/hypochondriac

I'm sorry to hear you are not well. I wonder if the coal smoke is aggravating your lungs.
It's tiresome when these things hang on, so I hope your doc CAn see you.

St. Fagans is interesting -- and looks like an excellent place to sell your pottery. (and I agree with Zhoen abou the Little Green Aliens.)

REtired minders still get coal? -that's nice, if inconvenient for you. I suppose it would have to be Polish coal now... I'd hope the medics would have more sense than to label you as a timewaster!
