It has been a long time since I posted an update and beings I am going through a life changing procedure in 17 days I though it was high time I posted an update.
So a quick breakdown of past events.
- My friend who was abused by her now ex-partner has now settled down and is expecting a child. Her partner is a fantastic man who is if anything over caring of her. It is a rare day that he hasn’t had a breakfast laid out for her on the dining table with a rose and freshly squeezed orange juice. Her ex is in jail for a variety of offenses and wont be released for 7+years. They will be married next year and I need to lose weight to fit the dress she wants me to wear.
- My workshop has been partially neglected over the last few month as life events have taken on an urgency of there own. I have managed to turn a few items and make some simple boxes out of MDF (urgh!). I long to start a major woodworking project but that will have to be in the new year once my strength has returned.
- I am flying to Thailand on the 4th October for life changing (saving) surgery on the 7th of October. Not returning until the 27th October. Why Thailand? Because they have the finest surgeons in the world for this procedure and are cheaper to boot. In Oz I would be short $20-30K for the procedure. If I fly to Thailand I have the most advanced technique (which I can not have in Australia – they use an old outdated technique), and cost me $12-13K including air fares. A crazy world isn’t it????
So wish me luck.
-- The wood slayer - Yes dear I did plan to make more kindling out of that wood I have been drying for the last year - honest!
