It's holidays. Mum is sick, so the kids and I camp out in the hobby shed, leaving her in peace.
Dad is cleaning, the kids are ferreting around in boxes
messing stuff up discovering old toys, some of which I offer to 'spruce up.' So I get distracted too!
Here is a cityscape I made out of a box of blocks. We are going to use it for mecha, as my 7-year-old and I are enjoying playing Mechwarrior Online together. (I may do a post on this PC game, as I think there is a fair Venn diagram overlap between wargamers/old dads with bad reflexes/tinkerers/mecha nerds...)
The kids tend to hand over stuff fast if I ask if they want me to 'do something with it.' I've even started to get requests! My daughter brought in her Hogwarts set and asked if I could help her "make it more real-looking.' I'll do before and after shots once we finish.
