Another sad time.

Hi Chaps,

Well it has been a while since I posted and there is a very sad reason. My father and best mate died at the end of February. Many of us will have experienced such a loss so you will understand the heart break.

Service will be resumed though it will never again feel normal, just new. It takes a while to recover just from the shock.

Today I did pick up the brushes and I am surprised to see I have a number of figures on the table that were completed weeks ago, I will post some pics soon.

Keep blogging guys and gals you are literally carrying me at the moment.This is Dad back in the 70's

  13. This is the first post I have read on your blog as I only just found it. My heart goes out to you and family, and I wish you all the best as you find your way going forwards. From similar things in my life all I can say is that they don't go away but we carry on growing and somehow we grow over it eventually. I'm the same age as you, I solo wargame, not so much of a blogger like yourself, and I very nearly lost my dad in January, he was very close to death and luckily they stabilised him in hospital. But it was a very close thing, and I was about to rush up and see him at the end when the news came that he'd turned a corner. I'm going up to see him on Monday with my son, making some more memories from what time might be left. I'm just getting back into gaming and soloing, and although I don't really have anywhere to paint or wargame, I want to do some more of that too. Here's hoping that I might blog something that you'll enjoy reading. All the best, Paul.
