I wish I hadnt left it til early September to write up about July – hey ho.
In mid July at five this morning I gave up trying and decided to go down to the river. It was so peaceful, quiet, beautiful and sweet that I feel much more calm. I had the camera with me of course. One of the photos got Explored on Flickr and had tens of thousands of views and favourites. A bit of a thrill.
PotFest in the Park and in the Pens
I LOVE PotFest… So many fabulous ceramicists and their wares. I went with Liz and Jess
I was determined at the one in the Park to keep a very tight hold on my purse and allow myself a limited budget. I reckoned without Apollo! I fell in love with him and after mulling it over and talking it through with Liz and Jess I had to buy him. He was my main sculptural piece for the Sitootery. Handsome isn””t he?
Also bought this very stylish oil burner….
Late July and at last the wedding I have been looking forward to for SO long… Chrissie and Chris. We stayed at a gorgeous B&B near to their home which was a real treat. The weather was stunning – if anything too hot – and it was a happy, loving, colourful, beautiful wedding. Not a dry eye in the house at the reception – which was afternoon tea. A very moving day and I was in tears watching Chrissie so lovely as she arrived at the church.
The week after the wedding and Hector and I were on leave so we could go to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. I have never been to a large sporting event before and enjoyed it a lot – from the train journey there and the atmosphere in the city to the games we saw. I would very happily go again. As selfless go this is a terrible photo of me…
Unfortunately in July Mum was taken quite ill and after a fall was in hospital for 2 or so weeks. Thankfully she got her strength back and recovered. The damage was temporary and she was so happy to be home again. IT was a hard time, very scary.
