Found a way of uploading my photos again, so here are some of my Christmas pics.
A couple of days after Christmas I went to a friend's house for a couple of 4 player wargames.
This was the first one, Turks vs Vlad the Impaler's army. The Turks won this matchup but it was good fun even for those on the losing side.
These are some of my Christmas toy soldiers on the painting board. The ones at the back are finished, the ones at the front still under way. These will be added to my Turkish army. Once these are done I will see what I need to put together a Hungarian army to fight them.
Another thing that Santa brought me was X-Wing, a boxed game that gives you Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing Fighter and a pair of Imperial TIE Fighters for him to take on. It is a great little game. Given a little encouragement I could do a blog post showing how this game works.
The rain continued over Christmas, making last year the 2nd wettest year on record in the UK. Given that just about all of the rain fell in 8 months I am sure that these added up to being the 8 wettest months on record. As can be seen above, some of the local farmers are thinking of trying their luck with rice this year :-)
The Great Stour is also running high again. This is, of course, the river that runs through Canterbury, our local answer to the Mississippi...
All those clouds did add up to some wonderful sunrises, though!
Hope you had a great weekend! I spent Saturday night having stomach cramps and throwing up, but after a good sleep I was fine again, although I did feel cheated that like always this shortened my weekend rather than taking place in work time :-(
