028 Life without the Internet

Thanks for your patience everyone: I should have had the internet by now but the bloody company had some sort of crisis, so I've been stuck in an isolated village with no Internet. Luckily, today I managed to get into the local town to buy stuff, and I'm on the library computer.

Which has a horrible keyboard.

GOOD NEWS THOUGH: Kate has given me the full run of the Garden Shed in the new cottage, so I now have an entire room dedicated to my hobby, and I can pootle around out there until the early hours without fear of disturbing my sweet slumbering wife. If only I didn't have to share it with quite so many moths and spiders...!


Getting lots done, by-and-by - photos soon; hope all's well with you...

  1. Glad to hear you're doing well. I say put the moths and spiders to work painting Guard! Hope you get your internet sorted soon, it'll be nice to start seeing updates from you again. I'm just beginning a move myself so all my hobby stuff is packed. Now I'm resigned to just enjoying the blogosphere...

  2. Welcome back Mr Drax.

    As soon as you get the chance, check out my IG list and let me know what you think. :D

    Moths are cool, I like moths... unlike most people it seems. Every night they fly in through my window and try to headbutt my lightbulb to death, or else just sit somewhere and look around. The other night I had one almost the size of the palm of my hand (I'm a relatively big guy at 6'2 so thats probably quite large indeed).

    Spiders, however, I really can't abide. They have a habit of climbing the Ivy on the wall and then into my window too... one of the few things that still makes me jump is turning around and spying a huge garden spider on the curtain next to my face!

  3. Thanks, guys: just managed to con Devon County Council out of another half-hour's free surfing.

    Should be back online Tomorrow or Friday, if I've pleased the gods.

    As luck would have it:
    (A) I played a game of 5th Edition (against myself) to try a few things out the other night after Kate had retired (ending at 3am): I'll post my thoughts later, but in a nutshell - and with the exception of the rear-vehicular-armour-in-close-combat fiasco - I like it: a lot!

    (B) An old army pal who's an occasional adversary has very kindly said he'll visit tomorrow as he's based nearby at the moment: I dunno if we'll get a chance to play, but at least I'll have someone other than the dog and the moths to talk to about 40K.

    Oh, and I wrote a lengthy letter to Jervis Johnson. Damn, I'm a geek.

    Right then. I'm off to train the moths on the finer points of basing miniatures...

    - Drax.

  4. Hurrah for garden sheds! Glad to hear you're settlgin in well :)
