I have signed up to go to Ghana with Hands Around the World (www.hatw.org.uk) in late October next year. We will help to build an orphanage out there, will be out there for a month and live and work with local people. We need to raise the funds to cover the project, so have been selling crafts, organising a rock gig (see http://www.granaryrocks.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/)... all new stuff and very interesting and challenging in it’s own way.

I’ve written loads in my entries already!
Well I enjoyed my 2 day course, and am quite pleased with the results. Not sure if I’ll do any more… it’s quite a dangerous hobby (danger of glass cuts, consuming glass splinters, lead poisoning, the nasty chemicals at the end), and you need to be quite tidy when working (something I’m not!). Also expensive to set up – you need so many tools and the materials are not cheap! Managed to come away with a nasty cut on my knuckle, which is healed on the outside but must have scarred near the bone, so is still painful. I’m still so glad I did it, and maybe I will do some more one day. Or maybe I’ll try glass fusing…..
