Sellotape. .......Sellotape? ........where’s the blimmin Sellotape? ?
So down to the shops for more.
I've been joking with the Dark Lady every birthday and Christmas since we met that for a gift I want an aeroplane.
DL the poor long-suffering woman smiles weakly as I trot out this old gag every six months. In truth it's more often than that but I'm not counting. I'm dreaming.
"When I win the Lottery" she gently chides.
She won about £3 the other week so she's on a winning streak. In fact she's won similar sums a couple of times before. So I'm guessing she's set up an "Alex's aeroplane fund"
With this run of luck I reckon the big win must be just around the corner.

I don't want to second guess here but I suspect the reason we've run out of sticky tape is that to wrap even a small flying machine takes a lot of paper and tape.
I'll keep you posted.
If I don't get round to doing another blog this side of Christmas and New Year. Have a wonderful time and don't forget to join me Christmas week 3-6.30 everyday except Xmas day.
