Given that my left arm seems to be recovering, I'm planning to try resuming painting tomorrow or Saturday. I'll be using a padded keyboard wrist-rest to provide a cushion for my elbows while painting and doing shorter bursts with longer breaks.
Cheap SF buildings
After reading various threads on TMP about using various items as a source of cheap buildings for SF, I've bought a couple of bits to give this a go myself when the weather gets a bit warmer - they'll need spray painting and at the moment I don't want to be opening the windows for ventilation as it takes my central heating positively ages to warm my flat up again. I could do the spraying in the morning before I go to work I guess, but waiting would give me some time to buy various fittings to accessorise them - windows, doors, vents, a/c units etc.
The bits I've bought for this:
1 pack of 3 Really Useful Boxes small collapsible crates (18cm x 13.5cm x 9cm)
1 triple-socket 30mm mounting box* (20.5cm x 8.5cm x 3.5cm)
1 double-socket flanged mounting box* (13.5cm x 7.5cm x 5cm)
* from B&Q's electrical supplies section
