Day 86: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Day 86: 100 Pots in 100 Days

Diary

Today I threw a pot. See below.

I also went to my Uncles funeral. Uncle Barry was a kind man who was very family focussed. He had Parkinson’s and this is a terrible disease. So my thoughts are with his family and I am thinking of him.
