I have noticed she is getting that way about the Dyson recently.

Surely to drive a Dyson, you will need lessons and pass a Dyson driving test.... lol

Tony if you saw my wife's driving you wouldn't even suggest another test to drive a Dyson.
I'll put it this way I met my wife when I was sent to deal with a Road accident near the Scottish border. The person in the
unturned car strapped into to her seatbelt was my wife to be (no other vehicle involved) - That was April Fools day 1982,
and since then she has had some memorable accidents.

Sheds? Workshops? I have seen model shops with less Stock!! How do you get away with having all those boats etc? Fortunately my Wife has several Hobbies, (Dolls Houses, Boot Sales etc) which require my skills to get her going on any new projects she has. Also she likes me to have a Hobby, she will sometimes come with me when I go sailing, chats with the other wives and picks up the latest Gossip...

You are one lucky man,I have had to semi /retire because of a bad heart & high blood pressure, I have had a stroke too, but every morning when I wake up on the right side of the grass I am a happy man. We are like old cars , we wear out. You are a very good model builder & long may you do so, Mick B.

hi guys.
well mine is the 'dinning room' was
aka gym,music room, spare room, and just about any thing else she can think of  :} :} %)
tool locker
 
trainer......self destructs on landing  :embarrassed: :D

latest build waiting for paint....Mas TB  34"

my little helpers.............. another hobby ....watercolor...... when waiting for funds/parts....they can redesign any part instantly....no need to even ask them  {-) {-) {-)

at least its warm and dry ............ but relegated to the outside drydock/bikeshed/patio store/place where all ends up when not needed. for spray work  :} :}
But I think I can build better than paint at the moment... :} :}

regards
