Yes, Wednesday has hit me in the face again - what happened to Monday and Tuesday? Can't really remember to be honest!
Today I am being a "Scab". The Unions are out on strike, protesting over the government's attempts to sort out our economy. I am not a union member - I grew up in the '70s and '80s and saw just how stupid things can get. I don't want to be part of it. The strikers may have a point - maybe the government is not doing things in the best possible way, but all striking is going to do is give them ammunition to shoot back with. This government wants to totally finish the unions off and massed strikes that will cost the country money it can't afford to lose only makes their case stronger. The unions are, IMO, playing their hand too soon and will be spent by the time the real fights need to be fought.
Enough of that!
Today is a beautiful day, in contrast to yesterday which was pelting with rain by the time I had to go home. I was like a drowned rat by the time I sploshed into the house, with everyone staying well clear of me! Dinner was wonderful - cheesey pasta with bacon and chorizo sausage. I hate until I felt ill, but still wanted more...
I have started planning my next set of toy soldiers. It will be a long project but the resulting army will be wonderful, involving some of the most spectacular troops that ever fought side by side. I am talking elephants, scythed chariots, cavalry with man and horse in full armour and naked barbarians! Can't wait to get my first order off.
Have a great day!
