A frustrating couple of weeks which I won't bore you with but with my Mam in hospital time is extremely limited especially as I come to realise that individually the majority of staff in the NHS are wonderful and hardworking .As an organisation it is inept and it is so easy to see how people with little conscious can sue and claim so much from an organisation which is so focussed on paperwork and forms that it loses sight of what it is there to do.

Rant over - for now! As things go on no doubt I will find the need to chew the fat on here and I apologise in advance.

As a result things have slowed down but some progress is being made
The cuirassiers await some grass! ( I prefer red wine) and unfortunately Spartacus' boys still look for some paint.
Off screen is the blood bowl team I promised o paint to take on my son - maybe next week???

The Clear Out

Like quite a few gamers wargaming has been a part of my life since I was around 12 or 13.
It's been a constant in my life and I guess through times of stress, upset etc its been something I can retreat to, collect my thoughts and focus on something other than reality :)

It also means that I have acquired through good reason or not an awful lot of stuff!!
This year will see my son move to America and he is going through a huge declutter program in his life and that really kickstarted me to do the same.

So I'm having a huge clear out - not selling through dribs and dabs just selling to a dealer in one big go. No stress, no hassle and I'm still leaving myself an awful lot of figures and games to look at but in the periods I guess I started the hobby with and the ones I'd like to finish with !!!!

Just some of the stuff I'm looking at shifting. Hidden behind all that is some 2000 painted Lord of the Rings figures - came as surprise to my son and I that I'd painted so much but I guess the last game was 10 years ago. Whilst the collection brings lots of good memories - that's what they are and I have photos etc to bring those times back.

So its hopefully the one and only big clear out and its back to business as usual painting whats left. :)
