I was sitting at work, minding my own business, when my phone went off.
It was a text from Mrs T telling me that a book I've been waiting for had been delivered. I was rather pleased at the news as I've started to ratchet up the work on The Next Project and I'd found a book that just suited my needs quite by chance on the internet.
I therefore made an effort on the train on the way home to finish what I am currently reading (an Inspector Ghote mystery) so I could start afresh in the morning.
When I got in, sure enough there was a box for me on the dining room table. It certainly looked like a book, but wait.......
No! It was TOYS instead. Yes, Mr Outpost had put my order in the post without any notificational type e-mail to let me know they were on their way.
I'd just rounded off my latest batch of Spanish El Cid plastics, so the painting desk is free.
If I can fit in an early finish at work his week then I can clean up and undercoat a test Regiment to see how they look.
I'm more excited by this project than I have been on any for a while.
But it would help to have that book.
PS - Apologies to regular readers on the paucity of posts recently. My wargaming has dropped right off and I haven't got much painting done either. Hopefully something positive to right about in the next few weeks.
