Binding up!

The normal good old British early Spring wet weather, had stopped any Sunday outside activity, even the cat was having non of it, she was well tucked up after her lunch. Nothing interested me on the television, a boring afternoon ahead or maybe a sleep in the chair?

I remembered there were 2 years worth of Practical Wireless magazines and a few Sprats scattered over the house. 14 were together, 2 were stuck in a drawer by the bed, and the rest were eventually found mixed up with several other piles of junk, which had been dumped together when the XYL had been on one of her recent mad cleaning rounds.

Someone had got me the binders for a present last year, again they took a bit of searching for? But I eventually found them, and set to work. After an hour or so, all were now together sorted and bound, ready for the bookshelf a real professional job!

I like to keep my magazines bound together, making quick reference easy when I want to go back to an article. Todays effort will help with a bulk of projects on the list which you will hear about in the future .

One Response to “Binding up!”

  • Stephen G0PQB:

    I keep my PW and Radcom and Sprat and Old Timers News and FISTS mag and Transmission Lines from the Defence Electronics History Society and Club Newsletter on the table in the kitchen and read through them during the course of the month. I am not as tidy as you are and I have various storage places round and about for them. But as I live alone I can do that. But there is always something to be done around and about indoors when the weather was so appalling like it was on Sunday just gone. At the very least dream of portable operations on warm days to come.
