The rumours of my demise...

--- were somewhat premature, thankfully! Just over a year ago, before the World decided to change itself, I closed down the old Fenris workshop in Kent and moved wholesale a couple of hundred miles North in what now seems a well-timed downsizing of space and overheads. It's taken six months of hard slog, of cramming 1200 square feet of workshop into less than 400, and of dealing with new physical trauma and health issues for both myself and the faithful Hound, but as the UK tentatively turns a pandemic corner and the Sun peers cautiously into the be-grimed windows of the converted former pig-sty that's now my workshop, it's time to shower you, oh Faithful Customer, with news of lots, and lots, and LOTS of new stuff available now or very soon...

Changing Plans
A year back, the intention was to relocate Fenris, work temporarily from these premises (henceforth: Holly Tree Cottage Workshops) and to seek out suitable new living and working premises somewhere between Lincs and Notts. Global Events forced a redesign, not least because the timing of my relocation pushed me into a pocket universe that meant zero financial support from the UK government and so completely stalled any hope of having spare budget for something as basic as my own home or workspace. Cancer scares for the Hound, and nerve damage issues affecting dexterity and manipulation for myself have all added to the challenge.

So, instead, I've spent a year recovering physically and mentally from the labour of some 27 self-loaded-and-driven vans of moulds, tools, and equipment, in catching up with the backlog of orders that built up, and in doing my best to mitigate the combined economic hit to the business of disease, disconnection from a neighbouring trade bloc, and general downturn. All this has left me less physically capable in terms of daily productivity, but I've forged new working partnerships that are starting to see concrete (more accurately, resin) results and which will hopefully move things at Fenris back into high gear once again...
