  • Not a great start to the New Year!

    After a great party last night we woke up this morning to a burst waterpipe in our workshop. The pipes froze and broke. When we unlocked the door a huge flood of water poured out as a result the carpet is underneath a few inches of water, and the computer is soaked. Unfortunately this is where i store most of my pyrography work. My sketch books, most of my pyrography books and patterns are soaked and are not salvageable. A few small wooden plaques have been soaked but hopefully they dry out ok. My Janik and my old antex have both been underwater but i hope i can dry them out. Luckily though i had taken my Davan and recent projects into the house so they are safe and sound!

    So overall not a great start to the new year!

    I wish everyone else a better start to the new year!!

                  The plaques have been water stained slightly but they are ok, only little doodles and blanks anyway. The books i have left are dry but are a bit tatty. One of the covers have fallen off which bugs me a bit but that's only because i like things neat and ordered . My Janik is working though!

                  We also had two more pipes burst in the annex part of the house, one for heating and one in the toilet! These things come in three's i guess lol.

                  Thanks for asking
