Now it feels like home ...

Hello Strangers ....

I know over the past year or so, my blogging has been a bit off, my commenting dire and my hobby output has been none existent, for that I apologise.

As a bit of background, just over a year ago my business collapsed due to quite a few customers who owed me a lot of money going bust in the recession. The fallout was pretty horrendous, some serious debt and us losing our home and having to move in with family.

As you can tell by my blogging, the whole thing had a pretty drastic affect on my personally and my hobbying. I just couldn't take any joy out of hobbying, it just didn't feel right having time to myself whilst my family weren't in their own home.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, we moved into our own home and overall, things are generally on the up. So last week, I took my models out of storage and setup my display cabinets and for the past couple of nights, I've had my painting station out and been cracking on with various projects. Last night, my wife came down after putting the little ones to bed and stood at the doorway, looked straight at me and said 'Now it feels like home'.

So gents, thanks for sticking with me during the past year, although I probably won't be knocking things out at the rate I did before but I've definitely got my mojo back for hobbying and my beloved guard. Anyway, that's enough from me, I'll leave you with a couple of pics of my favourite bits of furniture, I've got to get cracked on with painting up Harkers squad.

All the best
