A couple of weeks ago, at the end of our holidays, hubby was checking out details of a National Trust for Scotland property we intended to visit. While hunting for this info he came across an item looking for Volunteers to help out. Where were they looking for Volunteers I hear you ask?
I was quite excited, I can tell you although I'm the sort of person who can always find good reasons for NOT doing things but after thinking about it - it was just too good an opportunity to miss so I called, had an chat with them and received my first training yesterday.
I will be helping out in the shop but I did have to confess to not having any retail experience - well except when I was 16, the till looked a bit like this and was called a Cash Register!
It's pretty exciting to be able to say that not only am I creating a 12th scale Gladstone's Land, I'm actually going to be there on a regular basis.
Hopefully in time there will be lots of little stories to share with you all.
