For as long as I can remember my mum has had a collection of those intriguing little shards of pottery that turn up when you are digging in the garden – and I’ve picked up the habit from her. I’ve also found a beach near where I live where you can find pottery shards. I think there was a ferry that came up onto that beach many years ago - lots of cups of tea must have been drunk to celebrate reaching shore again!!
I’ve never really known why I’ve collected those shards – I just did it because my mum did – but now I’ve found something to do with them….

I gave this to my mum for Christmas.
