Working on it


What I've been up to in the past couple of weeks, in brief:

  • I did a few bits of welding and replacement of steering rack gaiters etc. on Lintilla; as a result she passed her MOT with only one advisory.
  • I finished putting up my new shed, refurbished a large wooden outdoor storage box, and promptly filled them both with stuff.
  • I finished moving out of the Nelson office (there must have been at least 15-20 Minor vanloads of stuff, plus a few trailers full of rubbish/recycling).
  • I caught a chest infection of some sort.


It's a long and complicated story. At the time when I decided to go from working at home to renting an office, I was working part time for an IT consultancy and part time trying to start a small-scale electronics manufacturing business. In the beginning I paid half of all the costs myself and the consultancy paid the other half. I was still paying half the rent when the consultancy went bust even though I had moved to working for them full time (they had taken over the electricity bill though, which was pretty astronomical). It was really useful to me having a nice big well-lit workshop with plenty of storage, and I'll miss that now that I've had to move out.
Wow, yes. Workspace is wonderful. I am busy not thinking about the likelihood of having to move later in the year, as this may induce a similar problem.
