    Since my last post a lot as happened in my business, first the apprentices I had did not work out and they when on their way to other jobs. I had to make a lot of improvements to my yard to keep working and these are underway but are taking time and money to put in place. So over the next few months there are going to be a lot of long days and evenings to make up for the cost of the improvements to the yard and workshop. However, with help of friends and family I should see through and get back on my feet again. One thing I have learned it is not to take on apprentices as the ones I had were a costly exercise in how to kill your business. They should come with a government health warning Could be hazardous to your health and your business and should be avoided at all costs
