    My Positive Days Post

    For the times when things are going well....

    Today started off slow. Had trouble getting in gear. By 11 oclock I was just happy that I had got up, showered, dressed and walked the dog. Since then I have been a bit better and got out into the studio. I rearranged the clay store and unloaded half a tonne of clay from a pallet in the drive and got it put away. Hubby was going to do it but I could not wait any longer for him and thought hey, I can do this, one 12.5kg bag at a time. and I did! Who needs a man!!!

    That's a fantastic idea for a thread
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    I bet moving all that clay is great exercise too! I think a positive days thread is a great idea

    It certainly was! Pottery really improves your upper body strength

    As to the thread I thought my positive days get lost in my desperate thread and it would be nice to have somewhere I and others if they want to could record when things weren't so bad and when I am having a bad day I can look back at all the better ones.

    What a fantastic thread! Well done for getting all of that clay moved - but I hope you didn't overdo it too much!

    Great idea for a thread Pen.

    Since reading your threads and FB page I realise that ceramics is a very physical art form what with moving big bags of clay and wedging clay you certainly need to be fit.

    Had another positive this evening. Ember got very excited when hubby came by and took several toys out. Then she decided that none of these were right and put them back in the toybox. I have never seen her put her toys away before!!
