Having safely arrived at another welcomed half term break, I had a notion to drop the suit off at the dry cleaners and have a mooch around the Sunshine Coast's mighty metropolis. After the third attempt of trying* the enthusiasm had rather wained, but I did pop into 'The Works', on the off chance of a cheap dinosaur or two, and came across this interesting little book. The First World War in a 100 Objects by Peter Doyle.
*Perhaps the World Health Organisation should stopping worrying about Rio and investigate what is targeting Southern Rail's drivers and guards!
Not only heavily discounted, this light read is rather nicely put together and should provide a perfect accompaniment to my elevenses next week. Buoyed with my find, I decided to pick up a little something for the hobby table in the shape of a rather splendid coir doormat, which I'm hoping will become wheat fields at some point in the not too distant future.
As for the paint table, well to be honest very little has happened of late, but I have started to put some paint on my Medieval Stable from 'Barrage Miniatures', more of which I will detail in a later post,
but all too often in these periods of drought, I seem to find myself a victim of UXB** - why else would an emerging steam powered tunneller from 'Ironclad Miniatures' find its way to 'Awdry Towers'?
