A bit of a slow start on the blogging front this year but workwise things have been moving on nicely. As the pic shows we made a fireplace this week and it should I hope be in place by this weekend. My long laid plans for retiring from my present profession should come to pass sometime this coming autumn and then.........? I've never been unemployed or idle before and the thought of being so rather scares me and so I've given much thought as to what my next move will be. I did offer this week to buy part of the masons yard I've been working out of but if a deal can be struck I'm not sure it is enough to fill up my time and satisfy whatever it is that makes me...me. A property that requires major upkeep combined with a new baby and three very young children combine to take the edge off my ambitions but I have to do something as doing something, making anything makes me who I am. So the quest continues as I reckon I have enough oomph left in me for one or two more adventures yet.
