In an effort to keep up momentum with this project I am doing regular (work in progress) posts.
With that in mind there’s not a great deal to report on BUT today I did build another 51 miniature Zulus. I made twenty during the week. So that, plus the ones I made a few weeks back, takes the grand total to 111 zulus. LOTS more to build though and every man counts.
It’s not a glamorous or exciting job, building Zulus, in fact it’s quite monotonous haha. It takes me back to my first full time job, as a 19 year old, when I worked for a printing firm. At one point I was doing twelve hours a day plus six hours on Saturday working on a silk-screen print machine. I was the fastest and most accurate out of our small printing crew I’m proud to say but maaaaaaan was it monotonous!!!! There were no windows in the print room and I only had a broken down old radio to keep me company. I occupied my mind with song/lyric ideas and would jot them down quickly on scrap bits of paper. By the time I got home my pockets would be jam packed with notes and songs and ideas haha. Crazy.
Despite the monotony of building the Zulus today it was still kind of fun because both my wife and youngest daughter sat at the table with me doing their own (not as cool) hobbies hehe. We had music on and I supplied us with cups of tea and cookies. So, as the world goes a little mad, we were quite content in each other’s company doing our own thing.
Here are a couple of shots of the 51 models I put together today. Again, I tried to make each one slightly different from the next.
That’s all folks…
Apart from this…
Be good to yourselves, look after yourselves but also be good to others and let’s look after each other.
