This is my first blog, so.......... here goes.
I have been looking for a place/studio to work for a long time to make my creations since I moved into my small, clean, neat, cheap flat. I found a light engineering unit that is big, filthy, untidy and not too expensive. I had some tools before the move, and these were dispersed around the land, in the care of friends before I left the mountain as I had little space in the flat to keep them. ( That IS another story. ) Tony my friend has been keeping my power tools safe, and these will be returned tomorrow. At last.
The studio is an old ground floor garage / workshop and small windowless office to one side in a secure yard . The whole place is somewhat derelict, but with electricity and running water, both from the tap, and down the walls. And is reached up a "street" which is really a small back of the houses lane where garbage bins jostle for space with each other. There is also an eccentric lady who throws her dog's turds over the wall into the lane. Here in the centre of Landudno, any workshop or light engineering space is as rare as hens teeth.
I have spent the last two days sweeping the rubbish out of the large room, and ordered the glass for the mirrors which be delivered, a real luxury as before I had to scrounge lifts to collect them as I cannot drive. I will walk over to the timber yard tomorrow, and get them delivered as well.
Foiled again starts officialy on June the first.
