The castle is standing, just. The problem now is:
To papier mâché the pieces separately, or all as one – that is the question. Mine is obviously a far more serious problem than Hamlet’s; I need to paper the bits which I won’t be able to get at once the castle is fixed together but I can’t tell exactly which those will until it is too late. The residents of the castle won’t be able to withstand slings and arrows if I block up their arrow slits and botch their battlements.
The good thing is that I have a week to quietly work this out while Chris takes over the posts.
