Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
A little bit deep and meaningful this week. “Billie the Hunted” is a Hasslefree figure of a scared girl hugging her rag doll. In these troubled times when our kids are understandably worried, spare a thought for Billie.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
Coronavirus – Self Isolation Week 4
Day 22 – Am I the only one who’s body clock is completely fucked right now? Pre-Cornonavirus lock down there were occasional times when I didn’t know what day of the week it was. An age thing. These days I do not know what day of the week it is, what time of day it is or even if it is morning or night. My internal intuition is now completely screwed. Even meal times follow no pattern. This morning I ate cauliflower cheese.
Day 23 – Thanks to Amazon two tins of spray matt varnish arrived today leaving only three orders outstanding. Well not entirely true as I placed an order with Dixon Miniatures for a few ACW figures but as I only did that yesterday it doesn’t really count.
Day 24 – In theory my family and I have 60 more days of self isolation to go. Government advice may change in that time of course but not for all I suspect and not those who are or have a family member in the high risk group. Time will tell but for now we have settled into a routine which although it has its low points seems to be working.
Day 25 – Today is my wedding anniversay, thirty eight years and counting. I can’t see via Google what the right gift is for 38 years of marriage but I’m pretty sure it isn’t Covid-19! Now I don’t typically plan ahead and buy things like anniversay and birthday cards that far in advance but for once I did and She Who Must Be Obeyed didn’t. I’m going to enjoy today!
Day 26 – There is a guy in my village who I cannot stand. He is an idiot and I call him Mad Martin. We have never seen eye to eye on anything but at times like these I have come to realise that life is to short, it is time to move on and to have no regrets. I have decided that when we bump into each other once lockdown is over I’m going to tell him to fuck off.
Day 27 – Pension payday today and I feel like the guy who lost a pound and found a penny. On the down side my share prices have dropped significantly and no dividends are being paid but on the up side I spent almost nothing of my net monthly income as a consequence of having nowhere to go. If the coronavirus lockdown continues for the next two years (heaven forbid) then I reckon I could be in with half a chance of balancing the books.
Day 28 – Now I have never been to prison and have no plans to do so. The thought of picking up dropped soap in the communal shower fills me with dread. However, I reckon the highlight of the average prisoners day is when the food tray is passed through the cell door hatch. And so it is with us when the home delivery arrives from the baker or the butcher or the grocer. 🤗
To WIP Post Or Not To WIP Post?
With my diroama OMG! almost complete it is time to start working on a new mini project the working title of which is “Covid 19: Lockdown Breakout”, catchy and rather topical I thought. I have no idea how long it will take, two or three posts at best I reckon. The question is do I put out a WIP post(s) before or after completion?
Something for me to mull over but feel free to share your opinion if you have one as I would welcome your thoughts. I’m also considering adding a little story line narrative.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Teenage Kicks” by The Undertones.
Feeling rebelious so felt like a bit of punk. Even went out twice for exercise as neither of the kids could be arsed to walk the dog last evening.
This week TIM has been watching…
“Remember the Titans” starring Denzil Washington.
A few years old now but a great film all the same. Can’t say I know anything whatsoever about American Football. Probably the most bazaar game ever invented from what I can make out but fortunatley you don’t need to have any understanding of the game to enjoy the film.
Taking a nap is easy, you can do it with your eyes closed!
