Crunch time

So. The chap that owns the shearing plant I've been using (who, incidentally, is ok to deal with on the phone but makes my skin crawl in person) has decided that, despite not wanting to shear any more, he doesn't want to sell his plant and he wants it back.

This leaves me in a position where I have to decide: is it worth spending the money to continue, or should I pack it in while I'm ahead? Basically, without a machine I can't do it so the option is to buy one.

There are none available second hand at the moment. New ones start at $900 for the smallest one, which is driven off a car battery. I have one chap I can phone who might be willing to sell me one he has in a shed, but it's a long shot.

So, do I spend the money, or not? I have the money, but it would mean slicing heavily into my Burning Man savings. *sigh*

Any sensible suggestions, ideas or slaps upside the head gratefully accepted.

And in other news, I reiterate what everyone else said about going back to work.

Well, lj is synonymous with petty, right?

The sleeves on my work shirts are too tight for my forearms, my hair is sticking out and someone nicked my stapler while I was away.

I want to go home now.

There's something else I want too. And I want it Right Now, even though I don't know what it is. Know that feeling?
