    Alert! alert! new post :O

    Wow, 18 months since my last post…and reading that, things have certainly changed! and all for the better.

    After what seems likes months of rain, we finally have beautiful sunny weather 🙂 I’ve got the day off to get my new passport – I REALLY didn’t look like my old one (photo taken in 2004) – I’ll add the then and now pictures later. Anyway, work has been very busy which means no time to blog in between running the workshop, dealing with customers, and frequent journeys abroad :P.
