Putting it All Back Together

Our Penang shipment arrived on Monday, all 64 boxes of it, 5 of which took up half the total shipment volume - the dollhouses.

Before the B & W house can be reassembled, a wheeled base needs to be built.  To the rescue, Argos. All jolly good fun, what?

Book - Spike Milligan

There are now seven books written by Spike covering his years spent as a gunner in WWII of which I have now read four.  Funny and sometimes painfully honest, I need to finish the series.

The gang at a Christmas Dinner in a wayside pub near Croome House.

An amazingly beautiful day, given the weeks and weeks of rain we had been having.  Next day the rain was back again.

The Dollhouse Begining

My bro' Mark sent me this nativity model just before Christmas.  I made this, perhaps when I was nine years old or so?

From little acorns do mighty oaks grow. Mind you, this B & W house has not arrived from Penang as yet.  Beginning to wonder if it is now at the bottom of the Indian Ocean.

Having gotten the keys to our new home, it was time for action man to boldly go aloft and fix the insulation.
