Café ordering: a step-by-step guide

Step One: Clear your work table.
Work table with piles of dolls' house miniature furniture and supplies and a clear space in the middle.
Step two: Find your project.
Wooden stool with a pile of wooden and cardboard pieces on top of it, topped with a plastic container full of fabric.
Step three: Waste some time artfully arranging your new purchases for the project on a piece of card to take a photo for your blog.
A selection of scrapbook paper sheets with distressed brick, plaster and wood patterns. A lenght of balsa wood and several lengths of dolls' house miniature skirting board.
(Making sure you get a nice close up of the many paper options you bought.)

Step four: Rebuild the pieces back to the state they were at ten days ago.

Step five: Get distracted thinking of how fun it would be to make a 1:12 scale version of the build so you can pretend you took it to Margell for the weekend to finish. Take a photo and then realise you should probably spend the time building the full-sized version rather that a miniature version,

Step six: Get an overwhelming urge to visit your local cafe for a coffee, justifying it by promising you'll put together a to-do list of what you need to finish on the build today.

Step seven: Convince yourself that they're probably closed today and perhaps you should just DO SOME WORK ALREADY!

Yep, sounds like me too. Much time wasted staring at items. Maybe a snack in there too. But you need to be rested to work, right?
