Default My Dolls House Room

Hi folks,

Today I had the surprise of my life. Ok no more kits are involved......yet!!!!

Anyway most of the arguments with my hubby all involve dolls houses or miniatures. What can I say, I can't help it. My dolls house room is very very small and well for the amount that I have and still need to build I am running out of space big time. Most of the small projects have already found room in other places of the house which hubby is not pleased about. I always bug him and tell him 'don't tell me to stop building houses, just bloody find me the space" As if it is his fault that my hobby takes a lot of space and I am running out of space.

I have been telling him to make me some shelves and it's been over a year since I told him but lost hope that they will ever happen. Today I came from work and wow a miracle happened. I think it mus have been one meteor sized hail ball that hit his head. I found him starting working on the shelves and this is how it is looking so far.

I was very pleased about it but I am already bugging him that that one huge shelf is not enough.

I will be updating you with more of his progress

Thank you so much ladies. Still hubby is in the dark about the flat kits. Poor man he really loves me to put up with me and the hobby. I always tell him that my hubby and my hobby have a lot in common. They both star with a h. They both end with a y and they both have a double b.

Yes at the moment I am a bit in a shock Vicky. It took him a year to start off. I wonder how long it is going to take to finish. I am sure that eventually they will do their job.

Oh well done Rebecca. I think a year is pretty good going really. And once he starts I am sure it is easier to do several shelves all in one go than one at a time????
