yes, I have stuff to make for Christmas. yes I have stuff to get off to a couple of shops for all the pre-Christmas selling. and, alas, I have a shop still quite in disrepair. wait, but that counts too!... well, it would be one way to invoke Murphy’s Law and make the day job go well into overtime for the foreseeable future.
