Back in the saddle

Well it's been a funny couple of months.
Firstly all kinds of personal and family issues meant I was travelling the country and not really spending much time at home nor in the workshop bungalow.

Then along came a General Election.
I've always taken an interest in politics, and always been a firm believer in engaging with people - whatever their political persuasion - to get people discussing policies and what parties actually do, rather than the usual X-Factor style personality vote that many elections have become.

So when the UK elections threw up a hung Parliament, the conversation didn't just stop. In fact, at the time of writing, things haven't exactly been sorted out yet. The Tories have yet to confirm a deal with the DUP to keep hold of power and there could be another General Election any time soon (although its unlikely to be before the upcoming summer recess).

On top of this, work still needs to get done to pay the bills.
So there's not been much time for messing about in the bungalow, making stuff with the 3d printer or cutting stuff out with the laser cutter.

But that's all about to change.
Enough with politics. Enough with being angry.
It's time to get making stuff again!
