  • Getting back to normal

    Hello all, sorry I haven't been around much lately but things have been quite hectic for us since my son in law had a stroke last month. We have been having the children sleep over 3 or 4 times a week so that Lisa could look after Tony and have a bit of the pressure taken off her. The good news is Tony is making great progress, his speech is almost back to normal, just a slight slur from time to time and he is managing to get out for short walks. Lisa brings him round to visit as he is getting pretty bored with staying in. He isn't allowed to drive yet so he's getting pretty grumpy at times, but we see that as a good sign. We are looking forward to having all the kids and grandkids round for Christmas dinner and my brother who lives on his own. There will be 12 of us in all so maybe I may be able to dodge the washing up - Lol.

      Hi Mick - great news mate! It certainly sounds like you are all on the home straight at last and will be able to enjoy a great family Christmas.

      As for missing out on washing those dishes. Don't disappoint your forum chums or Wendy. I think you'd look great in a Santa cap and white locks and beard wearing a nice festive apron and a pair of bright yellow latex kitchen gloves!!!

        Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

        Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

        FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

        You should try the dragon vase pattern as well. I first made mine after Steve published his first pdf vase book by swapping in one of his dragon motifs from the online library. Thats a really good way to increase your supply of patterns. I think Steve liked it because the dragon was included in the...

        Hey Tim - it's been a while pal! Great to hear from you.
