Christmas 2013

I do hope that everyone has had a great Christmas so far. I don’t like to think of it as being ‘all over’, even two-days after the main event but 2014 is only moving closer.

28: Unwrapped

I’d like to start by saying how refreshing it was to write a post on this blog that wasn’t about woodworking.
