Thanks for your patience everyone: I should have had the internet by now but the bloody company had some sort of crisis, so I've been stuck in an isolated village with no Internet. Luckily, today I managed to get into the local town to buy stuff, and I'm on the library computer.
Which has a horrible keyboard.
GOOD NEWS THOUGH: Kate has given me the full run of the Garden Shed in the new cottage, so I now have an entire room dedicated to my hobby, and I can pootle around out there until the early hours without fear of disturbing my sweet slumbering wife. If only I didn't have to share it with quite so many moths and spiders...!
Getting lots done, by-and-by - photos soon; hope all's well with you...
