Clearing my worktablePosted: March 9, 2015
On Saturday my brother and his wife took Sue and I out to dinner to celebrate my sixty fifth birthday, and today Sue and I spent most of the day with my nephew. Before midday we drove across South East London to Streatham to collect him from where he stayed overnight with a friend. We then went to Crawley (which is south of the M25 on the road to Brighton), where we had leisurely lunch before dropping him off at Gatwick Airport in plenty of time for him to catch his flight back to China. By the time we got home I wasn’t in the mood to do any varnishing or basing … so I didn’t do any!
With a bit of luck I should manage to get most of the varnishing and basing finished today … but as I ‘won’ an eBay auction over the weekend for a batch of figures that will allow me to augment the section of my collection of Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm-scale Napoleonic figures I am currently working on, I somehow suspect that my break from this project might be rather shorter than I thought it might be just a few days ago.
