I just thought that I'd post a quick update for my regular followers ...
Although life's been tough recently, things have started to take a turn for the better. The kids are more settled now, we've started to balance the finances, my wife has landed a good job and I've had a cracking promotion at my new job that's made quite a bit of difference. We're not out of the woods yet, but at least we're moving in the right direction.
All this has given me a new lease of life for the hobby as I don't feel as guilty now for spending time on little toy soldiers when my family was struggling so much. I certainly don't have the time I use to have for the hobby, but one of the bonuses of this hobby is that you can do as much or as little as possible.
So, I'm dusting off the painting station, shaking the paints and pointing the brushes, expect model updates coming soon!
Yours ..... A Happy Hobbyist!
