Phew! That has been exhausting but fun!

                                                             Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar "El Cid"

I have had a fantastic Christmas - albeit an exhausting one. The food and drink has been plentiful and the family has been on top form despite the lingering after effects of the various coughs, colds and other seasonal maladies.

Santa has been very generous this year and so I am now the proud owner of another two sets of Airfix 1:1200th scale Sink the Bismarck kits; a copy of Warhammer Historical's Gladiator rules and a number of Blu-rays for the collection including: Das Boot, Ben Hur, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and El Cid - which is one of my all time favourite films and would also be the only reason I would ever produce an 11th century army of any description.

All I need now then is a day or so on my own with a plate of Christmas comestibles and several glasses of seasonal good cheer and I shall be set fair for wargaming nirvana....;-)

Great to hear you had a good Christmas. My house was full of food and I had trouble walking after Christmas dinner.

Hi Beccas,

Seasonal greetings to you as well sir! The food, drink and company were top drawer and I was very pleased to go out for a long walk yesterday to walk some of it off!

All the best for the new year,

Food, family and a fantastic Christmas

All needed to weather the storms of 2012 but that can wait until the New Year

And we can all face it with new toys ;)

Hi Geordie,

Lots of new toys and the associated ideas for 2012 - enough to keep me busy in any event!

All the best,
