I had to show you my new comfy chair! It was made by Nicola's Mum Rosemary Lindsay and it's just great, I didn't think much of Nx seat cover when she first came to work here but I had to sit at her wheel to show her a shape and when I'd sat down on it I just had to have one!!! It is made of a special memory foam (space shuttle technology) and boy does it work, it's more comfy than my motorbike seat!?

Are We Sitting Comfortably? Then I'll Begin.
Our resident frog (just a small fellow) seems to be comfy sitting in his rearranged home and the pond is starting to get a little clearer. Most rules have to have some lea way and raw glazing has quite a few rules. I picked this wee tip up from a lecture by John Maltby years ago, If you have a pot that is bone dry but you have forgotten to either slip or glaze inside, if you get a nice clean, wet sponge and wipe it all around the outside of the dry pot you can usually get away with glazing / slipping it inside, you have to wipe it again after you've glazed / slipped it and it drys out very quickly so you slip ware folk would have to get your fingers out if you wanted to wet decorate inside. It shouldn't work but 999 times out of 1000 it does! (I haven't forgotten to glaze these pie dishes I just like the thickness that I get with this glaze if I do the insides when they are dry, that's how certain I am of this technique).
