maybe the sheep aren't real either and have been photoshopped.

I think the sheep are real enough, but I'm not sure about the hairdo of the one on the right.

Morning all,

 

I'm both grateful and very humbled  by the sentiments expressed by  everyone. 

 

Thank you. 

 

 

Progress continues but  it will take however long it takes.  On a positive, I'm not so wobbly or light headed. I can now stand up without sitting straight back down and walk down down stairs without fear or trepidation.  The headaches are generally gone and ones sense of taste and smell is  almost there but still a tad different. 

Main issue is the  getting out of breath doing simple , day to day tasks and by the afternoon I can be quite tired.  It can feel a little like one step forward and two steps back.......

Rob. 

Yea.........welcome home. Baaaaa. image.png.856fef61135e4ce9c2945e194e46f50e.png

Good to see you back Rob.

 

A perfect excuse to play trains and not worry about any modelling if you don't feel like it.

Very glad to see that you at least have the energy to respond to us here!

 

And if modelling seems like a bit too much, there's always YouTube! - 

 

 

Or perhaps this? -

Glad to hear that you are on the mend. Take it steady. As a show of solidarity, our sheep are sticking to their protective bubble...

Afternoon all. 

 

It will be a while before I can embark on building Outwool properly.

The reason for this is simply with everything in lockdown, I cant get to IKEA to source my usual baseboard. 

 

I................................

 

So a bit to tick over with....

 

 

Rob. 

 

 

IKEA do deliver to your home for a very reasonable fee - in response to an on-line order. So if you are ready to go you might want to consider.

 

In the meantime best wishes for a fully recovery. I look forward to hearing and seeing more of your inspiring models.

Thanks Chris and welcome aboard. 

 

There's plenty of time so I will do the smaller jobs first and then hopefully bring it all together fairly quickly. 

 

Thats the theory..........

Welcome baaaack!

 

Thanks Tim. 

 

Speed is not of the essence so it won't be the usual swift build. 

 

It will make a nice change in some ways. 

 

Still haven't found my lengths of bullhead rail though.....

Is that a good word to use in Sheepworld?

 

Yes.  I see nothing wrong with it.
