I have been struggling with my stomach again for the last few weeks, so there has not been much in the way of things to report. I have missed Monday night gaming for the last 2 weeks as I feel so crap, but I am clutching to the vain hope that the consultant with come up with something new when I see him on the 18th.
The good news is my ongoing weight loss plan is working well. I have
gone from a being a humungous fat b*****d to a still big fat
b*****d as I have lost over 2 stone so far this year. Only another 5 or 6 stone to go.
Painting has taken a big hit, all I have managed to finish have been 12 Tumbling Dice 1/600 Bf110 fighters for Bag the Hun. I still have loads of BoB planes to paint, but now have enough to play most encounters in the campaign.
Apart from them I have failed to paint anything. Not good, I will have to have a stern word with myself.
I do have lots of things I want to paint(15mm WW2, 15mm Vietnam ANZACs, 15mm AWI, 15mm ACW) and some things I need to paint(15mm Napoleonics, 25mm wagons), but at the moment I can't. My mojo as left the building, I could really do with it coming back now.
My oldest son and his family(that's his daughter on the left) are moving this weekend as well, so I will probably be drafted in to help as much as I can. They are moving a lot closer to us on the other side of the village, but also its a much bigger place for them with 2 decent double bedrooms instead of a small double and a box room. It's also in a much nicer area, so they can actually go outside without being surrounded by drug dealers and drunks. Its also a cul-de-sac instead of a main road, so quieter for them too.
The bad thing is that even if I was feeling well I wouldn't be going to the Devon Wargames meeting, which is a shame.
Well, that's it for now. A bit of a ramble. Hopefully next time there will be some gaming and/or painting to report. Take care.
