I've been clearing space for the second of my dioramas which will cover the last two decades or actually three really, doesn't time fly. I've got all the remaining boxed models out and crammed on a shelf above the display cabinet and now clearing , tidying etc the modelling materials on to the top and clear space to start. It will feature a modern bus station , a park and ride facility and a depot. Needless to say these will be unbranded so they can cover plenty of different arrangements in years to come. Without the lock downs I doubt if I would have got what is already done, well done - blimey I sound like Boris get that diorama done. There will be shops boarded up for sale or let, dossers in the doorways and all the other wonderful advances like blocks off flats and multi story car parks. As with the first there won't be room for everything and I've a couple which are carry overs from the last effort. I need to get a couple of covers done and file still photos plus the videos I scanned the other week. The to do list never gets to an end. The lawn mower service people were supposed to collect it, pitch black now I've pulled it back round the back of the house, can't see them coming now.
Mandy triumphs over the HMRC over the tax on our house letting in ROI, they came up with a demand for over a hundred pounds, normally its a few pence on currency conversion from Euros. Because it is reciprocal with Ireland where we pay tax on it there is nothing to pay in UK but you have to put in a self assessment form which they usually help us with. They did it over the phone but messed it up, we never got a reply so took it to our MP Esther McVey, although a bit on the right of the right she gets things sorted, a full apology to Mandy and a PAYMENT OF £50 from UK Tax to Mandy for all her trouble!!!
