Waking up to a home invasion on our first morning in the new house.

Turns out SA has an open season on Grey Teal … yum, yum Peking Duck!

Day two and, of course, dawdling while setting up office.  So, we will soon be back online dabling with projects.

Okay, so let’s see what has happened in last 3 weeks.

Finished and handed in my Master’s Dissertation.

The jacket I ordered from the tailor in Singapore finally turned up and it FITS!  I literally got a fitting on the way to Changi airport to fly home to Australia.

Bought a brilliant house in two weeks flat, while being able to rent out old place (so now a landlord no less).  Oh yes, and it has a shed!

Went into the DFROBOT competition for a free Bluno Beetle … and won one!

Oh, and I now have a shed.

So, moving house over next few weeks so still no time to doodling with bits but … soon.

Oh, and I now also have a pool.

Dissertation PDF’d ready to send to work by email to print on big fancy printer and then ring bind.  Ready for posting (as soon as I find the address). Still no word from bank on loan…so no shed…yet.

Handing Dissertation in next week.  So much to catch up on.

Buying a new house (subject now to bank but looking good).  Has, wait for it, … , a shed!

So, another month on this hiatus.  Looking forward to the sweet smell of solder, frayed wires piercing the soft flesh under my finger nails, wife nagging … hmmm … no, I won’t put an intercom in between the house and the shed, scratching that one off the list.

House should be sorted by the time my Sister brings my Nephew over for a quad-copter building frenzy.  My Sister is a science teacher and a computing nut.  I sent her on a Raspberry Pi workshop in Sydney last month to prepare for the week long build fest.

Should be fun.  We might all fit into the shed.  I told you I was getting a shed?  Yes, I am getting a shed!

I am soooo bad

Forgive me.  Just on last spurt of Master’s Dissertation so buried deep in writing, editing, stressing, deleting, more stressing, re-writing and stressing.
