One of those **** moments.
Mrs "H" slipped on the last stair of our spiral staircase on Tuesday, so after 3 days in the wonderful local Hospital she is resident in our living room for the next 35 Days with an ankle broken in 3 places.  Not a happy bunny...  So the progress on the layout has come to an immediate full stop as I really need to be within shouting distance.
 She cannot even leave the house as there is a long flight of stairs to negotiate from our front door to the adjacent road.  I may however begin to start an escape tunnel in the direction of the local Bar...  Just in case!
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Perhaps a baby alarm between Mrs H and the railway room?

Mrs H will be chewing the carpet if she's stuck in one room for 5 weeks... I hope you are a good cook!

Best wishes for a swift recovery.

Oh dear!

I know how painful a damaged ankle can be so huge sympathy for Mrs H, and I suppose you too Jerry as you'll be run ragged.

All the best.

Give Mrs. H our sympathy but tell her it will be okay - she has you to look after her! Of course, nobody knows what state you will be in in 5 weeks!  :)

ALEXA has this capability...  and it's corresponding "device" is called Train room, simples you would think..  Until Mrs "H" calls them Alisa,Alossa, Alfie, finally Bitch..   Alas the Amazon programme does not permit the latter title.

So sorry to hear of Mrs H's accident, Jerry, but found her terms for Alexa hilarious :smiley-laughing:

Sh****   hadn't thought about that one, I have replaced all cutlery with plastic substitutes and relocated the carpentry tools. Now I will have to think of a "Cunning plan" to prevent Mrs "H" keeping this and any future casts as a "Souviner"    Of course I could just be extreemly nice to her but wheres the fun in that ?
 :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Seriously though thanks to all of you for keeping me on the right side of sanity.
It is at a time like this living away from family and friends hits hard.

With the relatives I've got, I find it an advantage to be living away. I hope Mrs. H gets better quickly and you earn plenty of Brownie Points. :)
