I think I have it! I haven't been able to sleep because I hit a bit of a snag with project lathe cabinet. But after several hours of sketching, head scratching and balancing bits of wood on top of what I've built so far... It all got a bit complicated because I have to ensure the machinery is really accurate. Anyway I think I've worked out how to do it. I've written myself full instructions just in case I wake-up tomorrow and can't remember what seems so clear right now.

That's Greek for "This bath is too hot".

At least that's what Doctor Who told me.

It's when you wake up and realise that you dreamed the whole writing stuff down episode that you realise just how simple it seemed at the time and how you wish you had really written it it down!
Good luck!

I'm taking a photograph of the cabinet, my notes, a ruler, pen and Moleskine® down the cafe. I'll have a strong cup of coffee and and ask the waitress how to make this thing work.

Can we have the reaction and reply from her here in writing?

OK... I should take it to Peggy's café because she owes me. I helped with her crossword yesterday.

The Polish café I'm going to will probably tell me "Use of table and chair come with the cup of coffee, engineering consultancy costs extra."

Oh and... Why aren't you at work?

Rain stopped gardening so I came home for lunch. But I am off back out there now.

Still lurgified, otherwise I would come see you at Peggy's and play around with her table legs.

Also, I have now decided to get a Moleskine. I have much to take notes on.

Tesco's reporters pads seem to wear out before a quarter of the leaves are written on.
