A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Nine Days 'Til Christmas

Well, it isn't perfect - and I still HATE the "Entrance Hall" as it just looks AWFUL - but for now at least I am classing Madame Bellerose's house as finished. At some point in the future I will probably rip everything out of the hall and try again though. I've added light fittings, stair railings and all the other items that the house still needed last time I updated this blog. Everything has been taken out of the house and thoroughly dusted (it's amazing how fast dust and cat hair can build up) and the clear front of the house has been put in place to protect it. The photos of the finished house are on Flickr. There is still too much to do between now and Christmas. Throughout the year my mother always starts projects - from digging up the garden to redecorating the house - then never finishes them. Of course everything has to be "perfect" for Christmas, so everyone gets roped into finishing these projects, last weekend was re-laying the floor in the dining room. On top of that are the things that only get done once a year (on account of we're all too lazy) like polishing my Grandma's silver tea set which was in such a state it took me all afternoon. So on account of not having time to work on anything interesting, this will probably be the last post on this blog until after Christmas.
