Oh no. I've just been over to Fairy Meadow Miniatures website and found they've added even more DHE house kits. Worse, they now have Cumberland Castle and more terribly the East Wing extension too. It was always a wish of mine that they get this kit in stock so I could get my hands on it, but can I justify buying it now when I've only just bought two other kits and still have an Inn to complete? Can I buy it and still eat? Can I afford not to buy it now and risk it selling out before I am ready to purchase? Oh dear, oh dear.
At least I can be reasonably sure the castle won't sell out until after the 20th of January as FMM will be closed for Christmas from Saturday until then. That's a whole month to think about it . . . but what if the shop burns down over Christmas and they don't restock an C. Castles? Or what if they sell out before this Saturday? $600 is really too much to contemplate spending on top of the $400 I've only just forked out. Isn't it? It could be turned into the Tower of Magic, it would be a perfect Tower of Magic. Acutally, it would be two or three TofM's all joined together. The real magic involved would of course go in finding somewhere to put the finished castle.
When I bought the Retreat and Stratford B. I said how fortunate it was that they didn't have a Cumberland or I'd have bought that too. If I knew they were getting Cumberlands in stock, and so soon, I may have skipped the other two kits and just bought this one instead. Maybe if I complain about how unfair it is I'll get a discount on the Castle? Probably not.
What to do??? What to do???
