Well a year between posts and what a year! Rather than retiring I let the company talk me in to helping them outand found myself travelling all over the country. In September having driven almost 45000 miles and being away from home 4 days a week enough was enough and I called time and this time have really retired.
In April we also moved home which saw my somewhat overlarge collection packed away, since then we have renovated the house from top to bottom and the carpet fitters are here today to draw a close on the work!
The positive is the garden is large enough to accommodate a log cabin which Ive also built for the wargames room! Built but only one game played so far!
The move made me realise that I have way too much stuff and a major clear out is under way and Ive been selling at shows and ebay these last couple of months and more will follow.
The net result was that painting and hobby effectively ground to a halt!
But I'm back, my enthusiasm for this project has been dented but not diminished and I'm dipping the toe back in the water. The proof will be in the postings, but no promises just hopefully results.
