So the light bulb in my wargaming room has failed again ! - seeing it is suspended directly over the table and me being short in stature replacing it requires me to balance on a stepladder with one foot on the tabletop whilst I replace it ! . A bit of a pain but I've done it before - however this time whilst semi balanced on the table there was a significant 'CRACK' ! , a hurried inspection under the table (a dark and murky chaotic place at the best of times) I found one of the supporting joists had cracked ! , I would like to blame the age of the woodwork rather than my weight ! - I hasten to add .
The offending light (Grrrrr !) This has meant that I will have to take down my game and remove all the figure boxes under the table to patch up the damaged joist with a couple of wooden batons which I have managed to salvage from my neighbour's home renovation skip . Hopefully normal service will be restored in a day or two .
