OH MY GOD!!! Where do I start???
It’s been that long since I have been in the loft, I forgot just how untidy it was. The problem is that everything just gets put in the loft and forgot about. I am as much to blame, if not more so, as anyone because I’ll say “just put it in the loft and I’ll sort it later”. Well later never comes. Natalie our daughter likes to use the loft as a sound studio, as she can set up all her PA equipment and leave it in situ.
Well I’m afraid it is all going to change. From now on I am reclaiming my domain!!! (Until told otherwise by Jak) The space was first created for Jak as a craft room, but as we can’t fit proper staircase in, we have to just use a loft ladder. This proved too much for Jak, so we converted a bedroom into her craft room when our other Daughter Lauren moved out. This meant that I had the loft all to myself.
I built a sturdy table, custom made to suit the space and my height so that I don’t have to bend down to work on it. Like in said in a previous post, I filled the space with as much track as possible not once thinking of buildings or scenery. Now that I have found Scalescenes and have become addicted to building the models, I’m afraid all the track is going to have to come up and I’m going to start again.
Well I went up this morning and got set to shifting and cleaning. I have to tell you we could start a branch of Mothercare with all the stuff we have belonging to our Grandson Jack. Luckily enough the table is quite high and I can still store all of it under there.
Two hours later and I have my space back…….
The next step is to lift all of the track and have a blank canvas back. This I hope will be done tomorrow night (Monday). I only have two nights during the week I can work up there Monday and Wednesday, as I have to attend the Fire Station on a Tuesday night for drills, Thursday night I teach the Young Fire Fighters at the station and on Fridays I have to go and have a pint or two (because it is the law).
So, hopefully I might have a progress report for you on Wednesday.
Until next time……
