Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for the diary, metavision. Sounds like fun.

Did you get into that course just for fun or do you have plans about what you want to do with your new skills?

I enjoy it and I´m addicted to old, ruined houses so I´m going to need it to build or rebuild whatever housing I get into, even it is a packed-earth house.  When I´m in my nineties, I will retire to make eternal, wood furniture in some form of Arts & Crafts style.

I´m addicted to old, ruined houses

A friend of mine has a taste for them. He restores ruins then rents them out as holiday homes. Off the back of this he got a couple of book deals, and ended up as a consultant and researcher for the BBCs restoration series. Plus a S4C tv series on Welsh houses. He's just been told he's a finalist in an ethical tourism award.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
