Ah yes....TIME....I seem to have the time these days, but lack the energy to do anything with it. What I need, therefore, is a less demanding occupation so that I don't feel like crashing out on the sofa when I get home!

Education is important, but wood turning is importanter.

I asked the good lady wife what she wanted for Christmas this year.

Emphatically she said, a divorce!!

I replied I wasn`t intending on spending that much  :-\

I have the tools, the timber, so what I want is the time and inspiration to make a master piece!

What I would like is to be well off enough to only make what I like instead of what other people want. Not really expecting it though LOL. I'll settle for a few days relaxed, non workshop time just chilling before getting back to building up stock for the next round of shows.

I want...

...to finish decorating the Bathroom, building the kitchen (and then decorating it) and several pages of 'other' jobs SWMBO has backed up for me, so I can get in some turning time.

For the last couple of months all my time in the workshop has been producing the commissions I've been asked for, no 'fun' time.

Still, there's always next year!
Oh Lord, Lead me not into temptation…

...Oh who am I kidding, follow me, I know a shortcut!
