Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings! and my last post for 2020.
Before moving on may I wish each each and everyone of you and your families a Happy New Year. I will do a review of 2020 in due course but I don’t think I will be sticking my neck out to far by saying thank goodness 2020 is over. The New Year provides optimism for us all and with much talk of vaccinations here’s to hoping we can all return to our individual normal’s as soon as possible.
This weeks miniature is another double whammy and my last two 28mm American Civil War Confederates by Dixon’s, if not for ever than for this year at least. Nothing I can say about these two which I haven’t said already about the others and that wasn’t a great deal either! I can however confirm if you hadn’t worked it out already that the flag is not freehand.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Well I hope that despite everything you all managed to have an enjoyable Christmas. My own Christmas was more than a little strange. For the first time in I don’t know how many years I didn’t get to the pub on Christmas day as it was closed this year. As a consequence I was sober while eating Christmas Dinner and in the afternoon found myself still awake where normally I would have nodded off! All in all a very surreal experience but as (hopefully) a one off it was actually OK.
Santa brought me a few things, a book I have been looking forward to getting and reading and of course several modelling bits and pieces. Little in the way of figures this year (I really do need to work through my stash) but some much needed brushes, inks and paints which I am looking forward to using. The main things on my list sadly did not materialise but then again it has been that kind of a year.
Give Me Five
Christmas having passed for another year made me reflect on what I received but more significantly what I did not. I end the year with the top five things on my Christmas list that nobody could be arsed to put themselves out to get me! Maybe next year will prove more successful. In priority order for a change, just so family and friends are left in no doubt what I want for 2021, I give you:
- A hot date with Jenna Coleman
- A hot date with Jennifer Lawrence
- An E Type Jaguar Convertible (for my hot dates)
- Three World Cruise tickets (for me, Jenna and Jennifer, never travel without a spare!)
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Rehab” by Amy Winehouse. For all of us who over indulged at Christmas and will do so again when we say “Fuck Off 2020”. Drink problem? I drink, I fall over, no problem!
This week TIM has been watching …
“Last Christmas” starring Emilia Clarke. A very enjoyable and seasonal family film.
