For Paul to come home with this, wrapped in brown paper and strings ... yeah, he really does understand.
There have been numerous times when Paul will, for example, catch me using a piece of doll house furniture as a sanding block, or applying spray adhesive over newspapers on our kitchen floor, to which he says "you need some better tools", or "you could use a better work space." This makes me very happy that he enables my interests so. Also, the fact there's only happy surprise with a gift like this on an ordinary Thursday evening. You know, there's no expectation attached to say a birthday where some more romantic gift might be anticipated.
How am I going to use this? Hundreds of different ways apparently. Right now I have no idea, but I'm going to thoroughly enjoy every minute of finding out.
