    Some great ideas in that shop Peter. Certainly was a packed tour both here in the UK and Finland. Hope that you are now back to normal after the break

    Default We are getting closer to home...Singapore

    We are getting closer to home...Singapore Airport which is huge BUT WOW, it's full of beautiful garden beds in the terminal with mostly orchards....
    We had a 4hr layover before the 8hr flight to Sydney in the spacious QANTAS cattle class, well after the Finnair flight it was luxurious....
    We arrived in Sydney about 6.30am, picked up by our transfer about 8am and home in Faulconbridge about 10am...
    Tracey had to coach a gymnastics class that afternoon evening so it was rest time after lunch...

    It took me a good few weeks to get over the trip, as Derek said, it was a fully packed 4weeks away....

    The routine is now back to normal or what we call normal and the SHED BECKONS.....

    I've had to do some cleaning up and clearing out but we're back on track....
    Handy has sure missed our shed time together and was quite excited to see me with plans in hand....
    I've started another 3 "Pull Along Block Spinners" as Tracey gave the last one away.. [the assigned purpose of this toy].
    I have a "crafty project" in progress for daughter number 3's web-shop....
    And best of all....a new hand made wooden toy is being created....it has lug wheels for which I needed to organize a dado blade set for my saw....scares the daylights out of me; also a times like this I'd appreciate a wood lathe....

    The photos are only a small selection of the nearly 6000 I took with the new camera which still need to be sorted along with 5 x 64GB of HD Video I took at Gymnaestrada in Helsinki....
    It's real hard; I'm drawn to the shed but still have this hanging over my head....


    THANK YOU LADIES & GENTS ALL for the chat whilst I enjoyed this overseas trip.....
    Cheers from this "Toymaker at Large"

    Hi,
    Thanks for sharing. Now I truly know what you mean when you say you want plenty of photos, I don't think many of us can measure up to this effort.

    Enough is enough, more than enough is too much.

    Thank you for sharing the journey....
    Photos help tell the story or give an explanation that words can't find......
    It makes those who aren't there feel like they are a part of things....
    The photos also give a detailed view into the project and help others learn....
    SO YES MORE PHOTOS PLEASE, will always be my request...Cheers crowie
