Can we have a third option? I do some paid work but also have a full time non woodworking job.

I used to restore furniture full time until '91, returned from Australia last year.
Now scratching my nether regions making rustic garden stuff for the wife.
We live on 10 acres and about 7 is woodland, so when I am thinning the wood I try and make stuff from it.

As it's my first post here I'll point out that I'm pure hobby only, I'm sure if I were paid for what I make it then would be labeled was work I don't do work anymore ;) is it not a four letter word? ;) As soon as anything is classed as work it's not a hobby anymore is it?

So Bonjour Goodenmorgan to everyone.

Hi Paul,

Definately up for Kempton. Rob and I are thinking of sharing the transport up there on the Sunday.

Usually go on a Saturday, but not after anything in particular this time (I always say that but end up spending more than I mean to :o), so thought I'd give Sunday a try and see if there's any must have bargains around towards the end ;)

Think Rob's working Fri/Sat which helped decide on the Sunday. Hope we will see you then ?

Cheers, Paul :)
