I'm very happy with how he's turned out. Once I get final approval from the customer (and once the last few bits of base decor arrive) he'll be on his way to Ireland.
Good news! The Internet will be connected at the new place a few days early. So service should be back to normal from Wednesday.
I have a lot of blogs to catch up on, so I'll probably take the day off and spend it reading up on what I've missed.
