Message in a bottle

If anyone is wondering about the lack of posts... On my way back from a pleasant weekend visiting the Nineteenth Century, the time machine has broken down stranding me in the early Twentieth, in a savage and uncivilised time before blogs. Fortunately I have a plentiful supply of tea to sustain me.

Or put another way, my arrival home coincided with my Dad collapsing and being rushed to hospital, so I am currently drafted in as full-time carer for my Mum, with no internet access. Since there's a chance this arrangement may, to some degree or other, become semi-permanent, I'm ordering broadband for my parents home, but this will be a couple of weeks away at the earliest. In the meantime when free from family duties I'm assembling and painting some of the steam tanks I have in the queue, and trying to make inroads into the Victorian Civilians collection.

Chin up, stiff upper lip and all that!


  1. Good luck hope everything turns out okay.

  2. Thanks Mosstrooper. Good news, only a few hours after posting the above, Dad returned home from hospital. He's still got a lot of hospital appointments in the near future and "Family Duty" is going to be taking up a lot more of my time in the coming months, but hopefully things will be settling into some sort of equilibrium.

    Next post - back to the serious business of playing with toy soldiers while wearing silly hats.
