THANK YOU, WALES!
...Because you gave the world Dai, over at The Lost and the Damned and the Stunted [link] and he sent me a wonderful pressie through the post: A pack of flowers, with which to prettify the bases of my new 28mm Bolt Action Brits...and as a special treat, a dessert-painted Honey Stuart for my next-on-the-list-and-soon-to-be-cobbled-together Flames of War Desert Rats.
What a gent!
Sadly, I don't have access to the camera at the moment, so I can't take any pics, but in honour of his lovely gift, I spent an enjoyable two evening hobby sessions watching the marvellous 'Zulu' (which is - of course - my favourite film of all time), so here instead is Alphonse de Neuille's 'The Defence of Rorke's Drift' instead. A smashing piece of work:
In the meantime, by the way, the internet is still TERRIBLE here, which is why I've been on your blogs less. Do be patient - I'll be back, I promise!
