thanks Davee, it was great fun to do. I'd definitely recommend other forum members having a go if they commission another series.

If they make you the expert and replace Josie Lawrence with skay then I'll consider it. They can even call you Mr. Portsmouth!!

In answer to the question what is mottoware made from? I agree with Naomi it's not the material that defines Motto ware ,it could be any clay with a motto applied , That aside I never saw the Prog you were on Bisto but gather you did excellent so well done on that , I would be hopeless on that sort of thing , I once considered going on mastermind with a specialized subject being " The universe and it's entire contents", but decided maybe change that to "Fings what only I know", which was bugger all so I stay a viewer rather than a participant Laughter
