    I find the thing stopping me from getting anything done is either food, the weather or being mildly hungover.

    Other than that like today she got a nice 3 hour clean. Monday is also booked in.
     
  4. You say Monday is booked in but its due to be the hottest bank holiday in years, so I am guessing the Barbie and Beer are going to be getting in the way .

    Building model cars, aircraft and ships..
    Mostly plastic kits but I've recently started repainting diecast cars for commission work.
     
  7. I used to trade diecast models and 00 gauge trains so have some idea of how Skillful / dedicated you have to be to do that sort of work.

    Great looking garden. Love the open views you have. I have open views across the Cumbrian fells from my back garden so I appreciate what you have there.
