Moving house has overtaken events. An opportunity to move into the countryside presented itself which we didn't want to miss out on.
New place has a garage with adjacent flat tarmac driveway, so I'm looking forward to working on the van there. Van will still be outside but at least the tools and man cave will be now inside.
Signing off until 2016, when this restarts with renewed vigour.


ditto to that bar the signing off bit and the garage and the flat tarmac drive
