Almost There

Hi all sorry there hasn't been any pyrography or scroll sawing posts recently, but hopefully things are about to change.

It is almost five weeks since we moved house and I have been working like a beaver every day. The bungalow we moved too is small than the previous property and getting all our belongings into it has been a mammoth task, a bit like trying to get a size 9 foot into a size 4 boot. The place as been bulging at the seams despite numerous trips to the tip (our local recycling centre) and the charity shops with stuff that my wife finds is now unsuitable for our new place

Here is a photo or the garage, that will one day soon become my new workshop. I took on the day we moved in. To be honest, this was pretty much how the whole house looked for a few days at least.

Anyway, things are looking a lot better and I hope to post a picture of my workshop soon. I can't wait to get back to the pyrography and scroll sawing so I hope it will happen in the near future.

Moved at Last

Hi all,
sorry that there hasn't been any post pyrography or scroll sawing posts recently, after five months of waiting we finally managed to move house. That's the good news; the bad news is that there are still boxes everywhere and list of jobs to do which is longer than the M6.

I don't think I will be doing any pyrography or scroll sawing in the near future but I will start my posts again as soon as possible.

The move itself was a disaster because we didn't manage to get the keys until 3:40 pm and had to pay the removals people a van load of money for waiting time. Needless to say the boxes came off the vans very quickly and we lost control of the situation and boxes ended up everywhere despite our preparation.

Still we are in now and although we have a lot of work ahead we are pleased with the house and the fact that we have moved to a better area.
