New location, no workshop, old song & MaFe’s love.
So this is a little brief update on my situation, not just my workspace situation, but also life as it goes.
I think this little update is a lot about love, but we will see as I write the text…
Just before we get there I will show you a little drawing of my apartment as some of you know it (I had a few LJ’s there for visit). This is only for sentimental reasons…
She is also the reason I started to make funny cooking…
Since last I have been at the hospital, they thought it was a heart attack, but it was a spinal lock (don’t know the name), so after a visit at the chiropractor I was a new man.
Quite fast Sisse and I agreed that we better share roof and bed, and since her apartment had room enough and are situated in a good location only few hundred meters from the sea we decided to move there.
We have been tested in many ways these months, I was sick, making a new unit out of our two families and we even had time to try and rescue an old man who was about to die from being choked in a piece of bread.
Ok, a little woodworking, a bookcase and some beds but nothing worth blogging about on a woodworking site, even it was nice to smell some wood and make Festools run for a short while.
My wonderful daughter Mathilde and Sisse made a competition on fast they could build an IKEA closet, that was a wonderful moment.
This was a sad moment, packing down my workshop at the old place.
Last load from the old place was my good old Vespa.
Last flowers from my little garden.
The view at the road where I live now.
Since I for now have no workshop, I will have more time for drawing.
Also the nude on Mondays.
Here a view at my new desk.
My own shaves and Japanese tools.
Sketch books, woodworking books and an old chest in the living room.
Ahhhh some tools and wood, how could I live without!
My tote also found its way into the new apartment.
And even more interesting – my Japanese tools and workbench.
Yes I plan to work with Japanese tools until I find a room for rent to make a new workshop close to home.
So now you know why I am not arround as much as usual, hope there will be more time in the near future.
Plenty of warm thoughts to all of you.
