  • Temporary House Move

    I will be moving house for about 5 weeks to look after my ill mother in law until she can get a place in the rest home she likes.
    She has been bad on her feet and is getting so she needs someone to look out for her 24/7. She is 85 and has all her mental faculties about her. She will not leave the area where she was born and I don't blame her, she lives by the sea in a small ex-fishing village about 100 miles north of us. The home she will be moving to is also overlooking the sea and is only a couple of miles from the village. She is a lovely lady and is always cheerful so she should liven the place up a bit.
    We will be moving up next week. My daughter is looking after our dogs for us. I will be taking my scroll saw with me though as there is a decent sized garden shed to work in. Can only do small things though as I will be limited to the other tools I can take with me. Can't really take my band saw, table saw and planner.
    I will be taking my lap top too, so I can keep an eye on you all.

      Hi Mick - sorry to hear about your mother-in-law's situation but its comforting to know that she will have Wendy and yourself helping her through what must be a traumatic move. I'm sure she will appreciate your help and having noted that you said she likes the new nursing home here's wishing that the transition from one home to another will be reasonably smooth. She's definitely fortunate to have caring family around her.

      Btw - just seen your reply in my shout for help to an electrician. I think Alzheimer is setting in because I forgot that was your trade and that you would probably have an answer for me. Thanks mate!

      By the way. How about posting a couple of shots of the coast whilst you are up north. Its been a long time since I've seen the North Sea and felt that biting cold winter wind that freezes off your lower parts! Despite the ruggedness it sure is a beautiful part of England

        Thanks for all your kind words, she is a lovely lady and deserves the best. We offered to have her live with us but she is determined to stay where she is.
        TonyI would love to take my entire workshop up there but I would never come back again if I did.
        Jim It is a beautiful part of the country no matter what the season is. I will take my box brownie up with me - Lol.
        Btw Have a great time at Frieke's. I'm sure you two will have a lot to talk about and do.

          We had some great news. My wife's sister, who is the youngest daughter has decided to move in with her mum and rent her house out. This has lifted a load off everyones shoulders. The home she was going to was great but very expensive and although mum in law said she liked it, we suspect she said this to stop us feeling guilty. It is a great outcome, and we will get up to help out when ever we get the chance. Should be heading home next week. My dogs will lick me to pieces - Lol

              Terrific news Mick! - good things happen to good people.
              Best wishes to your Mum-in-law and to Wendy's sister for helping out.

              Take the dogs for a long walk when you get back.
              Hope you get better weather than it was tonight at the Chelsea-Barcelona match!

                  You are fortunate to have a family that cares. I have the care of my 92 yr old mother. She is currently in rehab from her 2nd stroke but will be coming home soon. I get no help from my other family, not even a visit when they are in town several times a week. One of the grandsons even works here in town. I've had to give up my part time job and don't get a lot of time with the saw. It has taught me that my future is bleak. If something happens to me, the answer will probably be a 38.
                  Sorry about the downer but it does get depressing sometimes.

                    I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                    I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                    Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                    One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                    I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                    Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                    If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
