Back to proper work

Now the surgeon has signed me off, reckons the back is stable and no surgery is necessary at this time, naturally, I am testing. So its up the tower and a bit of rough plastering. hat this thing its rickety as hell and wobbles all the time I'm up there.

Its balanced on a couple of oak planks with an old door on top. Then tied to the beams to make sure it doesn't topple. Still feels 'orrible though.

Change of pace

A while since I posted here.

The back has been bad so I've been taking it easy. The surgeon has checked the latest x-rays and MRI scans and confirms that the back is stable!! Basically, he says I have to start acting my age and stop carrying the sort of loads I'm used to moving. The pains are a result of carrying bucket loads of sand and cement upstairs to render the walls. I now have to carry half buckets!!

I've been making some speakers too. One pair for review in an on-line hi-fi magazine and now a pair for me, very kindly donated by the company that makes the first pair!!

Pictures of the build are on my Flickr pages
