Had a great day yesterday.
Woke up a little later than usual, and just laid there letting life slowly return to my limbs. I like waking up slowly...
Then someone realized that I was awake...
Everyone piled onto the bed, including Custard the dog - cards and presents followed - all naughty stuff - chocolate, jelly babies, wine... Oh yeah, my family knows what I like.
Then I meandered down for breakfast, which revolved around pain au chocolat and doughnuts of different types. Mmmmm.
Then spent a good part of the morning painting the toy soldiers that I had bought myself on Friday. I was painting these using my cheating furniture varnish method, but they look great - photos to follow once I have done the grass on their bases.
In the afternoon we watched some awful movie on the TV, a cheap "robots trying to take over the world" movie, the sort where you wonder what on earth they were thinking when they made it (around 3 years ago).
Then thoughts turned to dinner. Couldn't make my mind up what I wanted, so I jumped on my bike, went to the shop and bought a load of stuff that looked nice. This was then cooked (by Mrs RC, I was thrown out of the kitchen) and plonked on the table as a "help yourself" dinner. Went down great - at the end we just sat there trying not to move too much.
After a refreshing dog walk I returned to painting soldiers and somehow drank the bottle of wine that I had been given. I swear my glass has got a slow leak or something! I was a little worried that the wine might affect my painting, but they still looked good this morning, so no worries!
Then I headed off to bed for a well earned rest after a hard day...
