Alot has happened...

Well it's been a while since my last blog update as alot has happened for my family, and unfortunately it hasn't been good. On the 18th of July one of our daughters, Fiona, and my wife's Mum, Liz, were killed in a car accident. We are absolutely devastated and I don't think really quite coming to terms with it yet. All we can do, I guess, is carry on, and be thankful that our other two kids who were also in the car are still here with us and basically unharmed. But our hearts are broken; Flo was only 7, and Liz would have turned 55 yesterday.

Here's a picture of our two girls. Fiona (we called her Flo because when they were babies Jenna couldn't say Fiona so always called her Flona) is the one on the right, she was always in purple. The girls are twins, and Jen is also missing her sissy, certainly more so as they were twins.

So... I have just started getting more done in the shed, and without typing too much here's where I am up to in pictures.

The plasterer should be in either tomorrow or early next week, then we'll paint and the electrician will be in to finish his part of it. Then the fun part begins..furnishing! We also chose a carpet today and that will look really nice.

Lastly, I thout I would post some pics of my 6mm Naps. Obviously I haven't touched them in the last 4-5 weeks, but I will put some time in soon and try and double what I have done so far.

That's all for now. I might even look at learning how to do a better layout for the next entry.


  1. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Marcus. That's just such terrible news. May you find comfort where you can, and even if that's just an occasional escape to the hobby.
    Warmest wishes to you all.

  2. So sorry for you. Please accept my condolences.


  3. I've enjoyed reading your blog. My prayers are with you. God bless you and your family through this terrible time. You're not alone.

  4. I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my brother, sister and mother all in quick succession two years ago, but can only imagine what losing a child is like. I'm certain your little one is in the loving embrace of Heavenly Father. God Bless.

  5. Another prayer added from me. Thank you for the update.

  6. I read your post with much sadness, please accept my condolences. I wish to you and your family some peace in this most difficult time.
