Bloggy Christmas and a Bloggy New Year
It has been quite a while since I blogged, I was busy ok. The lead up to Christmas is always busy at Quackadoo, so I spent many days in hotel rooms, chasing lost passengers and the setting sun. Luckily this year I was rostered of for Christmas so got to spend it with my loved ones, but I did spare a thought for all those out there working. Funny, when I was younger I thought only firemen and policemen worked Xmas, how wrong I was, for many it is just another working day.
Not only was the aviation game busy leading up to the big day but so was my workshop. It was my youngest' last year at pre-school, so we wanted some good presents for her fantastic teachers. Last year my wife led the way with mug rugs and coffee cups, this year was my turn and pens. My daughter picked the acrylic colours and my son helped to drill the blanks.
The pens were well received by all the teachers, especially as they had my daughters input. I also had some pens to knock out for a great project run on the woodwork forums sight called “pens for the troops”. A couple of times a year pens are sent to service personnel overseas as a gift from home. This is the second time I have participated and am sure I will be back for more.
Finally was my pen swap for the IAP Fall PITH. This is always fun, swapping pens with people overseas. Here was that I sent, rosewood and she oak Polaris. Pens swaps are great and if you want to be involved the woodwork forum is holding one here.
Now that the silly season is over what does this year hold? Hopefully a few more blog posts, hopefully a new house to talk about and maybe I will get around to some more reviews including this bad boy .
Until then sit back, relax and enjoy the journey.
