Unfortunately I won't be taking part as someone has to guard the empty office buildings,  my overtime just went up to a 72 hour week.

I was notified today that I will not be working in April or May.   Thankfully the paycheck is guaranteed for April and most likely May too.  Now is when having a massive model stash will pay off!!!  I might get my GF to stack the stash randomly in the spare room and I can treat it like a trip to the LHS. 

I'll definitely be in for any GB/Theme Build that comes out if this idea!
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

We've already got "In the Navy" running.  Plenty of scope to join in with it.
If anyone has something they want to build but can't think of a way to get it to fit the rules then just ask.  I'm sure we'll be able to come up with a back story that'll allow it.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

I like some of the thinking in this thread.  I myself have enough rum stashed to fill a bath but it's all really expensive stuff that I don't want to open!

If you don't open it it's just a bottle on a shelf!

Well, seeing as the junior gardener here at Chateau Nick has been dismissed for cutting through the hedge strimmer cable  :unsure: :-X  I'll have to clear the desk and join in!

Not supposed to be drinking heavily but I'm sure a tot of rum tonight won't hurt too much.

Never mind, Nick, cables are easily repairable (if the DIY store is still open).   I'm sure that the household management will find other tasks for you. Much sympathy from me!!

  I spent Wednesday afternoon stacking just over a ton of logs in the shed...........thank the Lord for Rheged minor helping..........and this morning emptying a vast compost bin and  distributing the contents on the vegetable garden. At present, I'm slumped in a collapsed state building up my energies for pruning raspberry canes later.  Since Madame Rheged was a research botanist, she does the fancy stuff in the garden, I'm just the JCB end of horticulture.

.... and this morning emptying a vast compost bin and distributing the contents on the garden.

The Head Gardener (Mum) has this minute suggested doing just that tomorrow! She has said she can't do it as she's 'an old lady who can't do very much and is in self-isolation'. She's very good at deckchair gardening though  :wacko:

I think my dismissal was temporary  :rolleyes: ;D 
We've decided to pace out all the garden jobs over the next month. Gives us a variety of things to do each day. I could repair the trimmer cable but it's been cut through twice now and I don't want to tempt fate. It's rusty and very noisy too.
