Sea, Land, Air


What a dismal picture. Life's a bit like that at the moment. I've just had a message from the agent who acts for our landlord saying that they don't want to renew the lease, which is unfortunate for my flatmates since they don't want to move out, and unfortunate for me because it means that we have to have the place ready for a final inspection when we do move. It's just another stress on top of the rest of the moving stress.
Added to that, the centre stand on my scooter has broken, and I can't get hold of my mechanic. I'm guessing he's away on holiday. Unfortunately, so are Joy and Garth. Garth, Joy's partner is also a motorcycle mechanic, and would no doubt be happy to take a look at the thing.

Anyway, to make up for the low level crap that's happening in my life at the moment, I am making decadent pyjama pants. What, you may ask, makes pyjama pants decadent? The fabric, mostly. A 70/30 silk/cotton blend with a black and white deco-ish print. Mmmm.

if it's seriously harshing your buzz, I could look at your centre stand. I'm on holiday at home until Monday. it might be possible to achieve an interim solution, at least.

Thanks, I'd really appreciate that. Normally I'd just cope without, but it's limiting my flat-hunting ability, which is a bit crazy making at the moment.
I found a stray spring on the road when it fell over, which may have something to do with it, but there's a bit of bright metal under there where something appears to have sheared off so I'm apprehensive about the fixibility of it.

When would work best for you?

today or tomorrow I guess. I mean, i'm at home welding and sawing at the moment. if you are working during the day, evening is fine. i was wondering if it was a spring mount broken off. the only hassle might be if it is cast iron, that is really tricky stuff to weld, very brittle. but it might be possible in that case to just bodge a spring retainer using wire hose clamps or similar.

Yeah, I am at work today. I can come over this evening, about 6-ish, if that works for you.

I made a couple of pairs of pj bottoms before Christmas, in some lovely plaid brushed cotton.
