Well the first two sessions at pottery class were fun but I am not a natural. As promised here is a photo of my wonky toadstool ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Wow! That's lovely, CP! So cute. Now you need a fairy ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™‚๏ธor a gnome to go with it! How are you doing? The pottery classes sound fun.

It is very childish but I enjoyed making it. I am making a wonky cake stand next ( note the theme lol). The potter does not provide much guidance and we have not yet progressed to the wheel. I might find it too challenging in my wheelchair. It is a laugh though. This week my friend was making Christmas tree ornaments . I asked what she was doing and she showed me. I said oh that is a lovely chicken ๐Ÿ“ she was outraged, itโ€™s a Robin she said. I laughed so much I was in tears as was everyone else. God it did me good. After lockdowns, falls, flares and depression there is nothing better than a good belly laugh to raise your spirits. How are you doing? Xxx

Oh dear! That made me laugh! As you say, we could all do with it at the moment. Sorry to read about your fall in the other comments. I hope you feel better soon. I am not too bad, going through a bit of a rough few days, been waking up feeling like I've been hit by a truck, but hopefully it'll run itself out soon xx

Magic toadstool ๐Ÿ„

Morning CecilyParsley I love it great for a first try. Xx

Thank you xx

Cecily that is absolutely brilliant - well done you ๐Ÿ˜˜

It is more pre school than anything but I enjoyed it thank you xxx

Itโ€™s lovely x

It looks unique! Love it ๐Ÿ˜ during lockdown Iโ€™ve done all sorts of things from rock painting, making candles and attempted clay remodelling on broken statues in the garden. None will make my fortune but at least itโ€™s kept me sane ๐Ÿคฃ

Oh do share them with us Chris. I am just so relieved to be getting out of the house for a few hours. The potter wears PPE and has the door and windows open . She even has a disabled toilet so it is perfect for me. Xx

not wonky just natural. they don't grow straight.

Thatโ€™s what the potter said. Sadly cake stands donโ€™t usually droop lol xx

good if you are sitting on the side that droops and drops the cakes off onto your plate ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿง๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฐ


Love it cecily ๐Ÿ˜ and love that you enjoyed doing it too ๐Ÿ‘ . Glad you also had a good laugh ๐Ÿ˜† look forward to the cake stand ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—xx

Thank you lovely. How are you? Xxx

Not bad Thankyou cecily besides tail end of flu. Still waiting for appointment but things steady now and not progressing so Iโ€™m grateful for that. How are you? ๐Ÿค—x

Oh bless you, appointments seem to be moving a little here. I have a physio appointment next week hoorah!! And a Neurology appointment on 1 st November. I had such a bad fall two weeks ago so I am still bruised and stiff from that but my gut is more used to the Colchicine now so I am very grateful for that. Look after yourself xxx

Oh cecily sorry to hear that but glad getting used to the colchicine ๐Ÿ‘ and enjoying your pottery ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . You take care too ๐Ÿค—xx

Thank you so much xxx

Nature is not perfect, therefore your rendition perfectly mirrors nature.

I will remember that but my cake stand is droopy and I canโ€™t blame that on nature lol xx

Love it and glad youโ€™re enjoying the pottery! Embrace your signature style of wonky, Cecily but I love it! Hope youโ€™re getting on ok too! Xx

Bless you thank you. I did enjoy it and my goodness I have laughed. It sounds weird but I had forgotten what my laugh sounded like. How sad is that?A bit like Mutley really . I am getting over a particularly nasty fall where I crashed into the coffee table and then hit the floor hard. I am bruised everywhere and very stiff but I am starting physio next week so hopefully I will soon be able to re start my treadmill. How are you doing? Xxx

Cecily, I think it is really cute and you are being too hard on yourself. I love how you painted it. Can't wait to see your cake stand.

Healing hugs.

Oh you are too kind thank you so much xxx

Well it might be a bit wonky but it's still lovely. Just like lots of us on here ๐Ÿ˜. So glad you got to laugh again. Look forward to seeing the cake stand.

Thank you so much xxx


Oh yes..I love it ๐Ÿ™ŒWell done Cecily!! There's definitely room for a fairy on top..I think she'll love it too!! ๐Ÿงš๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ˜ฝXx

Thank you lovely. How are you doing? Xxx

I'm good thank you ๐Ÿค—usual wobbles but nothing I can't manage. ๐Ÿ˜‰We've been taking a different route back from town..alongside the river!! Oh mate I can't remember the last time I was next to a river!! I had to go for blood test last Tuesday so I took some grub for the ducks..had a Google to see what one can safely feed ducks..I took peas (defrosted) n sweetcorn..they love it!! As we got to place where I was gonna feed them I was absolutely delighted to find five large cygnets there too. I started feeding n the swan parents rocked up with another cygnet!!

And of course there were ducks there too!! ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ˜น

Was freezing though so I'm working on getting warmer clothing for these wonderful encounters coz I'm pencilling 'duck feeding' into my tight schedule!! ๐Ÿ˜น

It's the smallest of things that give us pleasure n joy though..that's what I'm finding on this journey. And your toadstool made my day today ๐Ÿ„thank you ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ˜ฝxx

How wonderful Kat. You are absolutely right it is the little things that make life worthwhile. I am so glad you got to be beside the river and see natureโ€™s beauty. You have taught me something so next time I go to the park I will take defrosted peas and sweetcorn too. I am almost afraid to ask..any news on the car? Xxx

It was easier getting a diagnosis for me tbh!! ๐Ÿ˜นI'm experimenting with the ducks now..porridge oats they like them..and shredded lettuce apparently!! Enjoy your next trip to the park ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ˜ฝxx

Oh damn that car had better be worth the wait lovely. I havenโ€™t been to the park for ages but I can definitely take some porridge and lettuce too. Mostly geese but ducks and other birds too there. I used to walk around it twice 3/4 mile each lap. Those were the days lol xxx

So glad you posted cecily. I love your wonky ๐Ÿ„. Your very clever and can't wait to see your cake stand. Its just wonderful to lose yourself in something different.

Good luck with your physio appt. Hope its helpful for you. Been so long in coming. ๐Ÿคž

I do appreciate your anger re mine but ive decided to stick with any appt is better than no appt!. We can discuss it and if nothing is offered then im going back to the foot surgeon. He's given me an open appt thankfully.

Have a good week and take care Xx๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿ„๐Ÿคžโค๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคžโค๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคžโค๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคž

Thank you so much. It is very, very basic but it is just so nice to get out of the house for a few hours and concentrate on something else other than health. Good luck with your appointment Misty. Please let me know how you get on xxx

Its so important cecily for us to have a break from health. Good luck with your appt, do tell me how it went and i can't wait to see your wonky cakestand. Wasnt Strictly good?. Take care. Xx๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿ„๐Ÿคžโค๐Ÿคž

Thank you. Strictly was amazing. My favourites so far are Rose and John xxx

I didnt think gorka and kelly should go cecily!. I thought johannes and john were just amazing and i love rose and giovanni too. Xx๐Ÿ„โค๐Ÿ„

I thought Dan has been awful the past two weeks he should have gone but it is a popularity contest unfortunately . I am pleased Katy went out of her and Judy. Judy is doing it for all us large ladies xxx
