    Can you get a break in between the classes?

    I am going to try. The hectic activity of the last few weeks is taking its toll. I took a Lorzapan last night when I went to bed, I am still in a fuzzy state.

    Are you working on your days off again?

    IS that because you just don't stop working or because you keep on scheduling things to be done on the days when you're not meant to be working?

    Both really. The growth in the one and two day throwing classes mean I am often working on a Sunday. On a Monday at the moment there is so much work to be done that I cant really stop. The only day off I can be sure of is Wednesday but even then I may need to load the kiln.

    Yes. But a lot of her time is being spent on making stuff for the wedding. She is throwing all the vases and candle holders herself.

    That's fine, but not in work time surely? So you're in theory she's throwing pots with your clay, using your electricity, your glazes etc and being paid to do so too? Pen, you can't do it all lovely - the point of employing her was that she helped....
