August comes to a close

Wow where has this past week gone? Oh my the kids go back to school next week will have to get back into the daily grind of the school routine which will be totally weird as my youngest starts nursery as well so the house will be child free for most of the mornings will be SO really strange!

Hobby wise not done a great deal at all been to tired in the evenings and have bene chilling out reading! The bank holiday weekend was spent out on day trips Sunday out to Bridgenorth for the day wandered round an outdoor food market a nice meal and a walk around the town and Monday celebrating the other SWMBO birthday went to Stourport (packed) and took the dogs out with us stopped in at a pub on the way home for some nosh. It was a great weekend to be honest very relaxing the weather was good and was nice to goto some of the local countryside haunts in such good weather.

Cheers!

Last night was the first time I picked up the brush for over a week have made some good headway with the human cleric character as well as basecoating the skin/fur on the two hounds. I have picked up two more additions to the party (more Demi-Humans) but more will follow on those as they are painted. I can see me getting all these adventurers as I'm really enjoying painting them.


Have started watching game of thrones as well only watched the first two so far. Can't make my mind up on it yet but I'm warming to it.


Still waiting for the Empire of the Dead Requiem kickstarter to land. All being well they will start shipping next week. Pledges are being shipped from bottom to top so mine being at the upper end but not having added many extras I'm hoping mine will turn up some time mid September I really can't wait to be honest.

  3. Great to hear that you had a pleasant time. There is nothing like a good break, as I have found out myself the last fortnight. Yep the grind starts again on Monday. Do you get that 'things are going to be different' only to find nothing has changed!?
