Updates etc

I had been avoiding it ( it being Frozen) but ended up promising to watch it on Boxing Day.I was pleasantly surprised by the film and entertained too. I also watched it as a source of gaming ideas too-
I particularly liked the juxtaposition of 19th century ships and viking looking dragon- prowed boats in the harbour.If it is good enough for Disney...

The same day I watched a splendid film called "Salmon fishing in the Yemen" on iplayer which I would recommend wholeheartedly to you all.I believe it is still available on iplayer until tonight.

Yesterday we had a family gathering here which went well. I was introduced to Pintrest by my niece which I had vaguely  heard of. I took little persuasion and joined up directly.It is such fun. I can see me being sucked into this and many happy hours spent collecting images.

Whist being  very tired still I am beginning to think what I would like to game /collect/paint in 2015. There are too many ideas floating around my brain/dodo pad/moleskin already and I will have to be disciplined,well a little I fear. After all the hobby is meant to be fun and life has enough disciplines without being to hard on myself hobbywise.I will let you know how my thinking goes...


  1. Luckily escaped Frozen so far....but it's only a matter of time. Good luck with the planning, don't let too many good ideas stop one project going ahead.

  2. I like Pinterest. There are plenty of useful gardening tips on there.

  3. I haven't seen Frozen (nor many of the animated films of recent years, even though I enjoy animation). I do have some Reaper snow goons that could fit into some sort of "frozen" scenarios...

  4. I don't have young children or grandchildren, but after your review I might allow myself to watch Frozen if it is offered, say, on an air flight.
    Wishing you and all the Duchy only good and happy things in the year to come.
