Oh, will you just look at this! The Garage has been completed. It has a lift and a ramp and perspex in the windows and an awning thing where the pumps are meant to be, and a tunnel. Breathless enthusiasm? Trust me, Max is almost as excited as I am. Don't ask me what the cars are doing over the pump shelter when there's ample parking on the roof; or why there's a petrol pump and another vehicle on top of the elevator. I think the police have it in hand.
I know what you're thinking; it could do with a lick of paint. But Max kept asking me if he could test it out and I thought, you know that's not such a bad idea; if he immediately overcranks the elevator it's better that I mend it before I've glued the roof on. But in the end he's been surprisingly gentle with it, although aggressively territorial. And I'm going to leave the paint job for another time.
