Anniversary Weekend

Well that was probably the most awesome weekend ever!

Not that anything especially outstanding happened, but it was just the way everything added up.

The weather was amazing, for a start. Hot enough for shorts and t-shirt but with a hint of a breeze to stop you feeling too hot.

On Friday we just messed around, did a bit of shopping, walked the dog, had a barbeque, etc.
On Saturday we went out and bought presents for each other - probably not your typical 24th anniversary presents, but they were what we wanted. I bought Mrs RC some plants and a big pot for the garden. She bought me some stuff for making trees to go with my toy soldiers. Then we came home and I made pizzas while Mrs RC planted her new plants.

Sunday was very lazy. In the morning (or what was left of it once I had finally got up) I started making some trees and started painting the next part of my Polish army. But then it got too hot, so I joined Mrs RC in the garden and spent the afternoon sunbathing and drinking beer.

Like I said, no one thing was outstanding, but added together it was the best weekend I can remember.

Oh, and I finally finished painting my Winged Hussars! Here they are with a few friends.

Glad you had a nice weekend!

Do your kids ever want to play with those soldiers? I am guessing that is off limits?

Ali - Thanks!

Miss Minneapolis - They do play from time to time. My eldest is a bit of a demon, to tell the truth, and especially enjoys my Star Wars spaceship game.

For me, that's what adds up to a perfect weekend too. So glad you enjoyed it as much as you did.

Sounds like a great weekend!
Sometimes we need to relax and unwind with the ones we love.

I'm still amazed by what you do - does this go on over here? How would we find out - or are most battles held privately? What would be the key "Google" word?
