The bank/public holiday is here and since I finished the roof, tidied the garden and sorted out all the other odd jobs that had accumulated, I am planning to do diddly-squat this weekend. I will be walking, taking some photos of things that take my interest and it won’t be so hot this weekend, so I  ...

Easter is here and our deadline is looming irrespective of the holiday break this weekend.

The Yandles Spring Show last weekend was a resounding success. I met so many of you at the show and sorry if I was not able to spend as much time with each of you as I would have liked.

Happy Friday, everyone! So, a lot has been happening this week and I’ve been meeting some interesting people, albeit whilst at barbecues! (Well, it is summer!).

It was great seeing many of you at the new South East Woodworking Show last weekend, which was run by Nelton Exhibitions. This is the first for them in this location and everyone commented on the good location and the strength of the show in general. I think this show is very much likely to grow qui ...

Happy April Fools day, everyone! I am glad to say that no one has played any horrible jokes on me yet, which is good!
