She's tempting but I'm sticking to my guns...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

They say you should never live your fantasy, and I never have. Sad really.
I, on the other hand, did live my fantasy.

With the benefit of hindsight, what "they" say is very good advice. :mrgreen:

Odd that you should mention that, Witness. Look what arrived as part of a job lot bought on eBay:

A Hornby Supersound. These were state of the art back in the day!

Meanwhile, work continues, slowly but surely. Flooring's down, brickwork's completed and plastering has commenced. It's no joke getting construction materials up there at my age!

Looks like it's going to get chilly up there this winter. Should I recommend a nice space heater?

Heh. I've stuffed the unusable areas with rolls of loft insulation and the roof's felted so it's already draughtproof and getting pretty snug up there. I plan to board out the ceiling with insulation behind it for further soundproofing and snugness purposes. :)

That is a thing of beauty, Witness but way, way beyond my means.

These were around when I was a member of the school model railway society and we fitted some. :)

This NBL bears a striking resemblence to my sister; I had to look twice.

(And no, I'm not going to post a pic. The thought of sparks perving over my sister is too much to bear.)
