Christmas Day

Well an excellent day has been had by all in the Duchy. Santa has come to all and all are happy with his gifts. I myself was blessed with a couple of books on the campaigns of Saratoga and also Philidelphia ( fits well well with der Alte's forthcoming range- too tempting I fear) to read over the hopefully lazy days ahead. I have been out to morning Mass, had excellent food and just enjoyed an inventive and entertaining Dr Who Christmas Day Special- well worth catching on I player if you missed it.

On a slightly sad note the Wargamers Annual failed to arrive but may be the parcel waiting at the sorting office to be colllected on Wednesday....

A great day in company of my Ducal Household who all endeavoured to make a glorious meal. Hopefully
another good day ahead tomorrow and maybe even the paint brush out!

Merry Christmas to one and all and do tell what Santa brought you!


  1. Alan,

    I also am still awaiting a number of gaming "gifts" that Canada Post has yet to deliver . . . but my lady wife and I still had many goodies to open.

    Besides much in the way of DVDs, books and clothes, I got little on the gaming front . . . some specialized TSATF decks, a few magazines and a package of 80 4" long pikes for my eventual ECW project.

    I am glad that you had Jan and your girls with you on this Christmas Day, since family is the greatest gift.

    So I wish you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year . . . and once again thank you for your many interesting posts.

    -- Jeff

  2. Merry Christmas to Tradgardland and the ducal household!

    No Christmas gifts for me, except the ones I buy for myself. Which did include a few things from Foundry, some dvds, and a solo game that I have yet to open (will likely post something about it on my blog when I get a chance).

  3. All of Beerstein wishes you and yours a very Merry Christmas indeed...

  4. A very merry Christmas to you and yours, Alan
