One hour to teach 40 glass painting novices how to paint! Sounds like the sort of TV challenge I can't resist.Where is your natural caution when you need it? In my defence I was running a temperature when asked to perform this feat - my normal reason not just impaired but on holiday, With no sense except the desire to sneeze, snooze and snuggle up, I cheerfully said, Yes I can do that! At this point happily assuming it would be a two hour slot. It seemed a bit churlish to withdraw the offer once the single allotted hour was mentioned. And there is no doubt it will be a bit of fun, and a also bit of a mad gallop, but the Bolsover Women are made of sterling stuff. We will succeed|
Should I invite the Guinness Book of Records with stopwatches?
If all goes to plan, the Famous Bolsover 40 will turn up bearing little picture frames, a water pot and some paper towel - possibly they might have constructed a little WI flag with this kit if they bring a paintbrush as well. Some may even have made their own design for that picture frame. Failing that, they'll have to make do with mine.
I am fascinated to see if it can be done in 60 mins.
Of course it can! And the proof will be up here next week.
