Wow, I can’t believe it has been a month since my last post. Still, it makes sense that I haven’t written as much as I would like, even though I have been buying some choice items from ebay (I’ve made it my goal to collect all of Superior’s ‘Play it Again Sam’ compilations, but still have a way to go).
Firstly, it is getting even colder, and without insulation or a fur coat like Hannibal Chew from Bladerunner, I fear for my safety to spend any time in the garage with all my goodies.
Secondly, the baby has become ever closer and we have been rushing madly to get the house ready. In went the insulation and the ventilation system to combat the dampness and out went the lead paint and asbestos curtains and we boarded up the World War 1 bunker. Ok, we didn’t really do those last things, but I did remove all the barbed wire from the fence between us and the now deceased Polish WW1 refugee next door.
Thirdly, my wife has started to sort out the work stock that needs to be sent back, with the result that the entire garage floor is covered in hair dryers, straighteners, tweezers and mannequin heads. I take my life in my hands walking to the desk: if I walk quickly I’m liable to trip and get stabbed to death with a very expensive pair of hairdressing scissors, or if I walk slowly I may freeze to death.
Hopefully once the excitement of the baby has died down I might be able to snatch a few minutes here and there to actually play around with some of my new purchases and get some details up on the site.
That’s it really for now …
