With no ability to travel, I need to enjoy every day things more and this includes taking joy in my designs and attempting to document and explain them.

There have not been many changes to my practice, except that more time has meant more work and more productivity.

Local Bookswap cupboards are pretty special, so is the local recycling depot when its open. I like a churn of objects through our house, and the depot and book swaps are sources of many interesting and unexpected items.

I couldn't really have a favorite room in the house. There are four main rooms and a shed in the house and we live in all of them. Here is the kitchen.

I'm building a recumbent bike at the moment which is fun. I'm still coming up with new design variations and it's a pleasure to try them out, then present the results well.

Dinner tonight was omelette on toast. Leftover chicken, eggs, mint from garden, milk, bread. Cook toast in toaster. Everything else throw in frypan. Mess it up a bit with a spatula. Serve when cooked. Eat.
