Who said retirement would be to much time to waste !!

I took early retirement a couple of years ago, thinking I would have all the time in the world........not so.....my ceramics is busier than ever, even though I have cut out some shows, my lampwork is also doing quite well, the garden needs attending to, then there is the housework and I must get at least a swim in each week. Our poor dog sulks when he has to wait for his walk.
I have been busy with my ceramics over the past couple of weeks. Thses items are ready to be wrapped and put into the box.

My sister in law comes over one day a week and helps, trying to organise me, which at my age is impossible......
I have also been doing some large holed and capped beads. Really loving the lampwork, but have to consintrate on the ceramics or I will have nothing for the shows.
I am also in the middle of re doing my websites, so please be patient as it is taking longer than I thought.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the lovely weather. I had a few days in Brixham and it was so relaxing.Even Lacey was so chilled out.
However it is now back to the studio getting ready for the May Bank Holiday show at Sherborne Dorset, with my ceramics.
I have also posted some silver cored beads and cabochones on ebay 110682316918 do have a look, you may see something you like.
Maybe post tomorrow if I have a good day in the studio and anything to show you.
