    Lovely dry overcast weather today, maybe for March or September but June?
    We are coming up to what will be the longest and therefore based on recent weather trends, the most miserable day of the year.
    I should be feeling hot just wearing my shorts and a shirt rather than taking my cardigan and fleece out with me in case I get too cold!!!

    However crappy weather brings some benefits and after the Darkside 'Fest yesterday I have eventually found the enthusiasm to take pictures of almost all of my remaining 3mm and TT collection taking advantage of another free listing day on a popular electronic auction site.
    Pulled the HOe out for a peruse earlier and think that could be next to go.

    I will bring focus into my hobby at some point :rolleyes:

    Nah.........not admitting defeat yet ;) & I do have a few cunning plans up my sleeve :thumbs: ..........the attic workshop is extremely tidy & organised now though what with the rain putting the outdoor stuff on hold.

    When I do find time for an indoor layout though, I'm pretty sure it will be 7mm :)

    Finally some dry weather here:). I have managed to get into the garden and cut the 8' x 4' Phenolic ply sheets in preparation of fixing to the posts. Tomorrow ( weather permitting ) i will nip into wickes and get the screws needed and hopefully there will be some RAILWAY activity IN THE GARDEN:D
