Picture Weekend

Saturday was a very welcome break in my hectic routine - I spent virtually the whole day doing absolutely nothing at all! Bliss! A friend who I met when our boys were tiny babes is getting married at the beginning of next month, and a gang of us got together for a spa day on Saturday - great chat, lunch without interruptions, glass of bubbly, lazing by the pool with a trashy magazine and a facial - absolute bliss! We all had a great time - thank you Catherine! Most of the others went on to a pole dancing lesson in the evening, but T had already booked a night out when the hen party invitations were sent out, so I had to sit that one out. Hearing about all the aches and bruises from friends at the school gate this morning almost made me glad I hadn't been able to go, but the photos looked hilarious! I'm sure you'll understand why I'm not showing you any photos from Saturday though!

Sunday was a family day. T bought me a voucher for half a day's glass blowing lesson at Roman Glass for my Christmas and birthday present. I haven't been able to book it yet as I've been so busy teaching and they've been busy moving into a new workshop, the Project Workshops, near Winchester. When I read in the latest Craft and Design magazine that the craft complex that they're based in was having a weekend event I persuaded T and B to come with me with the promise of a pub lunch on the way. I loved it there, and I must admit that I was wondering round thinking of how much I'd love a studio space there - maybe one day when B's older!

We found woods carpeted with bluebells on our way to the Project Workshops 
so obviously had to stop for a photo!

I could have watched the glass blowing for hours.
If you want to see more of their work visit

A couple of the amazing sculptures around the workshops.
Can you imagine how womderful it must be to work in such inspiring surroundings?
