12th Night

The soldiers of Albion have been busy today-

They ( like me) have taken the decorations off the tree and removed the cards etc . I like the medieval conceit of Christmas lasting until the second of February but can never keep it going that long here sadly. I have been under the weather of late with flu/man flu / heavy cold and have done little or no hobby things. Today has seen the start of getting things organised for the girls return to university too.I have enjoyed listening to the bbc radio season on the red planet on the iplayer radio app. Some excellent reviews of Martian fiction as well as walks in Wells footsteps around Woking. Well worth a listen l say. I have also renewed my acquaintance with Barsoom. I really enjoyed the books in my late teens as well as having some of the excellent Hinchcliffe figures then too.  I have downloaded the audio books of the first two books in the series and really enjoyed listening to them. I will listen to more anon. A copy of Bobs Napoleonic Portable Wargame rules was ordered today and some gaming plans thought through.


  1. Tradgardmastare,

    Sorry to read that you have been unwell. My wife is just recovering from a bout of norovirus and it has rather put a damper on the start of our New Year. I hope that you get over your illness quickly.

    I often listen to the radio when modelling or painting, but recently the radio in my toy/warganes room has stopped working. I hope to find a cheap replacement for it over the next week.

    I hope that you like my latest book; I certainly enjoyed writing it!

    All the best,


  2. Now Christmas is without its attendant cold/man flu , just getting over it as well , in's not conducive to modelling/painting.
