Once again, long time, no see! I've been busy this year with our block of flats house plumbing and electrics renovation: First packing my things (on my own) for three months during the spring, moving out in May, staying in a temporary place for the summer and then moving back in August. And finally, slowly putting my stuff back in place. Did some wall paper renewal in August, too, with some help from my runaway wife. That's our daughter though in one of those pictures. At the moment I'm out of band. Our drummer decided to quit, which came as a pretty bad surprise. He's been kind of distant for the most of the year, but I thought it was just his health issues. Apparently not. Tomorrow I'll be jamming with another local rockabilly band that has had vocalist problems, because their singer lives in another town and can't attend as much as they would like him to. And, with our own band's bassist we have a plan to start searching for a new drummer in January, if our former drummer won't come back. We'll see. This year's been busy in the band racket, too. We've had more gigs this year than before, with people asking us to come and play instead of us trying to sell ourselves . So it would be a crying shame to quit now. Hope to attend more on the forum from now on, but we'll have see about that, too. Removing the old wallpapers. The first or upper layer of old papers had been painted white for some reason unknown, and they looked awful. Underneath them there was the original layer of dark green gothic wallpapers, they had a nice figure, but they were a bit too dark. Old papers removed, before smoothing and painting the concrete walls. The same room now. Poor picture, curtains still missing. My small 'study' with some of the basic elements of life .
