Just when they thought it was safe...

SUMMER BREAK 2!
Yes, am signing off for a couple of weeks so I can totally vege out and forget everything I do at work.
We are not going away but will be having days out as a family, plus the odd wargame day, including one that I will be running at home for the guys while my wonderful wife supplies us with food and drink.
Hey, I will also turn 44 while I am away (I NEVER work on my birthday). Is that some sort of magic number? Stay tuned for the next year and you may find out!
What do I want for my birthday? How nice of you to ask! Let me see...
I usually have some new toy soldiers but I am resisting that this year, as I have piles that I really must get painted before I embark on anything new. Zulus are tempting, though...
Books. I love books. I am looking for a good book on the Battle of Poitiers at the moment...
Music. Music makes my world go round - I currently have a CD of classic rock tracks going, Saxon, Wheels of Steel is currently on. Who? I hear you ask? Oh, you must be too young... I will probably get a new CD or 2. Need more Foo Fighters, haven't got the CD with Learn to Fly yet. Looking bigger, my wife promised a visit to the guitar shops in Canterbury on my birthday, so who knows. I am having increasing thoughts about getting back into a band so a nice, new, big guitar amp would be nice...
Well, whatever happens, I hope you all have a wonderful time while I am away. May God bless you all and keep you safe and well!

A couple of weeks?!?! As in the word week with an "s" tacked on the end?
Awwww! Please excuse me while I have a little pout...






...okay, I'm a bit better now.

I will miss you, but have a wonderful birthday, a safe holiday, fun with your war games, and a productive visit to the guitar shop!

Terri - thanks for the hugs.

Ali - Yes, 2 weeks sounds like a long time, doesn't it?

Oh, I just had a VERY productive visit to the guitar shop and ended up buying myself my main present (with my wife on the phone at the same time). I got a 50 Watt VOX amp with built in amp modelling and FX. Can't wait to get playing on it!

Happy future birthday to you!!!
Enjoy the time with family and your hobbies!
Sometimes those vacations where you just stay home are so much better than going anywhere.

You WILL be missed!! :0)
