Been unexpectedly busy but not as tiring as some. Went shopping for some paving slabs this morning only to find that the business we buy from is no longer around. Drat. Planning on going to Clipstone some time soon to look at a different local concrete products place.
No USA mail yet, but the longer the wait goes on, the more I look forward to it. I received two brilliant books about making wire jewellery and findings yesterday and spent so much time reading them and trying out a couple of ideas that I didn’t get around to leaving a blog. Today I’ve taken delivery of a small butane torch for soldering/fusing and a thickish piece of sheet steel to use as an anvil. No horses shod here, though I do know we’ve eaten the odd bit of horse meat here and there. All need to do now is learn how to use all these gadgets. At least the torch is only like a Bunsen burner turned on its side, and Lord knows how many BBs I’ve used in labs and at home over the years.
Time to move off and have another go at one of the smaller suggestions in the new books. Progress report to follow;)
