I’ve been not tumblering for a while, but I’m still alive!!! Apart from teaching, I haven’t done much/any smithing in the past month, but there has been an intersex goat. Named Dobby. And there’s Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Molly Weasley, so many goats. And big woolly woolly sheep. And a puppy. And a farm. I swear I’ll get back to smithing soon!

I finished the forging on another asymmetric wrapped axe today! It was so much work, that I really needed a pint at the end. A pint of ice cream, that is! ;P And no, I didn’t finish the whole thing.
