My first foray into the blogosphere
I have watched from the sidelines, for a few years now, as my good lady wife has used the universe of blogging to connect with, and update those who are interested in, her craft exploits. This does not seem to have consumed vast quantities of her time and she has, over the years, grown quite a following. She has become part of the wider community around her crafting likes but has also found this as a way to expand her horizons.
After many years as a progressing adult, I have found myself reminiscing over the things that used to be part of a much simpler time in my life, when there was not so much of a need to watch clocks, trouble myself with the desperate needs of others, or worry unduly about concentrating on things that couldn't make me smile.
I recall weekend afternoons, if the weather was not fit for being outside (according to my Dad there weren't many of those that could be used as an excuse to be inside 😉), when hours could be whittled away attempting to glue pieces of plastic together in order to approximate the picture on the box.
As I remember it, the glue was always stringy and thick, the fingers always left their mark in the glue that had oozed from between the two parts that were now joined and the finished product always never quite looked like the one on the box.
I decided a year or two ago to try my hand at scale modeling again to while away a few rain-soaked afternoons, but it wasn't till I came back to NZ that the will and the ability to carry on in such a manner became distinctly possible.
On with the show...
