Brugge and Ghent

Sue and I have just returned from our first foreign holiday in over two years - a short trip to Belgium where we visited Brussels, Brugge and Ghent. As you can image - I took hundreds of photographs, some of which even included Sue!

One of the highlights was visiting and taking photographs of the buildings and in particular the Castle of Gravensteen in Ghent.

1400 Days - The Civil War Day by Day

I picked up this hard back book - 1400 Days - The Civil War Day by Day written by Chris Bishop, Ian Drury and Tony Gibbons from a charity shop in Pershore Worcestershire earlier today. The main reason I bought it was that is full of beautiful illustrations and just the thing to get me inspired to model some ACW buildings or maybe even ships.

The book was just £2.00 and in my opinion, well worth the purchase.

Fantasy Tree House - Miniature Wargames issue 475

The latest issue of Miniature Wargames (issue 475 November 2022) has another article written by me - a scratch built Fantasy Tree House that uses a plastic Bonsai tree and a plaster cast underground hovel to model a Burrows and Badgers inspired model.

Warplanes by MacDonald from 1961

I have recently been given this ten book series - Warplanes of the Second World War published by MacDonald. The books were a gift from my uncle John and were sent to my mother's house in Swansea.

Sue and I have just returned from South Wales and I am absolutely chuffed to have these books - books that I used to browse through when I was still a teenager and in school. Thank you uncle John.

Or my case, the lack of blogging.....

The last couple of weeks have been difficult as I have had a very bad case of shingles, which has meant that with the exception of doctors, pharmacy and hospital visit, I have not been over the door. Things are slowly improving, but I'm still not fully recovered and I have still to find my Mojo.

Hopefully, I can get back to regular blogging soon.
