Resembling Something like Normality

A very nice technician from the National Broadband Network turned up earlier this week and installed a new fixed wireless broadband dish and box of electrickery, so I now have an (albeit temporary) internet connection in the new workshop while I do battle with the insurers over the remains of our house.

The workshop was damaged in the storm too, but is, at least, useable and repairable.

Many thanks for the well wishes here and in the many emails I received. A big thank you also to the most excellent chap who suggested setting up a “Get Jack’s Arse back to Work” relief fund via PayPal donations – very thoughtful, but quite unnecessary.

    Jack I am very glad to see you back in operation again. I find your site to be the most informative on the net for period furniture. I look forward to each and every post and I found myself checking each day for something new. Now you propose a book, some form of torture anticipating that for the future. You must be pleased that you have your shop to occupy your mind and give some relief from the battle with insurance and your house.

    Thankyou for using the word “normality” instead of the one president Harding invented which has become more common lately – “normalcy”. I’m also glad to see you’re back.

    Welcome back (and best of luck with the insurers).
