Nigel, a colleague, has this suggestion for my experiment with fixing vinyl discs to the ceiling.
It’s probably obvious the adhesive would need to be the type applied to both surfaces and allowed to get almost dry before fixing, otherwise the record won’t stay there.
I did not take this advice and went ahead with my own idea of using No More Nails, not that I had any choice.
When reading the draft of last week’s column, Mrs Mac disappeared to her car and returned clutching a tube of the adhesive, dived into the cupboard, presented me with old records, held the ladder and demanded that the experiment begin.
Well, a week later the records are still in place and we are contemplating more as the bathroom renovation gathers pace.
