I planned a fine day in the studio but was thwarted by traffic, I have spent 7 hours in London hold ups when I should have been working. This is a lot of radio 4 even for me. I just cannot carry some sculpture on the bus and a simple car trip back from Battersea took 4 hours for a 15 mile journey and I thought the smoke I could see from my studio before I set out for home was an early bonfire party but actually turned out to be a car on fire. So even the trip home, normally straightforward was again frustratingly slow. So not much progress on 3 small - and for once I really do mean small - sculptures. Polly the apprentice, below, was raring to go before we had to undertake the mammoth trek across the metropolis, she slept all the way and is asleep again at my feet now, power napping to be ready for tomorrow.
