I can't wait to get back into my studio and start painting, but for now I am at the kitchen table. January has to be the time for some essential paperwork and forward planning, potential exhibitions, tweeks to the website and dates for workshops and art classes. Although we work separately it's really important that my dates don't clash with the pottery year of my partner Nigel, we can't be both pushing our deadlines at the same time, it's crucial that there's always someone keeping calm and making a cup of tea at the right moment.
