Or to be precise, don’t let your parents let kids play with your models. Invited my friend over today because my mum was teaching a baking class. As I was catching up with her, the kids from upstairs and next door came over as well for tea and while I was suitably distracted, my parents let them play with the models I had on display.

Result: Christine lost body trim and suffered a broken doorhandle. The Hummer, same as the one above but in red, lost two wheels and a snapped axle. Currently, I’m seething with rage. You’d think my parents would’ve learned from this - the last time kids were over, they broke my dad’s priceless turntable needle. Agh.
