Day 49: 100 Pots in 100 Days


Well, cleaning took all day – again. I hope that now it is clean and tidy the routine of cleaning will not take a whole day. Finally managed to throw a pot at 11pm. I spent the evening singing with a friend. We didn’t even sing about pots.

This pot went wonky when I turned the bottom. I hope it lasts and remains a bit wonky as, again, I like it. 

I am thinking about sorting out the pots and days as I want them to correspond to the date I threw them. This diary business is getting complex and I have a few pots in reserve now so could pull on them if needed as the pot of the day. 

Anyway it will take thinking about but I feel day 50 is the day to start afresh if I am going to.
