IT'S HELL, BUT SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT....

A slack few weeks on the painting front here at Mercurius Atticus, most of my efforts have been on fantasy stuff over at my other blog where things are going great guns. I have been finding time to paint some more flatpack 54mm houses during my lunch break at work, that is until the last couple of days when it has just got too hot in the polytunnel where I set up my improvised painting station (to the amusement of my colleagues). I will post pictures soon when finished.

On the subject of work, we have been flat out at the Garden Centre, having our busiest Spring ever, which is just as well after such a dismal year last year. Start at 7 ish watering and then from 8.30 dealing with stock and customers until 6 -6.30pm . Mind you, it's not a bad environment to spend the day in


Yesterday I did an hour and then stopped for breakfast, surveying the shop floor


but at the end of the day I had to crash out when I got home with heatstroke, just not used to hot weather. Could be worse though...
