Here are a few random photos that seem to sum up my summer.
There has been a good amount of wargaming this summer - some just for fun, some vaguely serious, but it was all good. Can't wait to finish my Scots army - that is going to be great fun to play.
The highlight was, of course, the belated Honeymoon to Malta. What a splendid little island!
The view continues to taunt me...
The plant life was pretty good too - the survival of cacti is easy to understand, but some of the flowers looked far too delicate for the heat - but what do I know?
I just know they looked wonderful!
Late summer saw our annual camping trip. Our youngest boy has taken over campfire duties, and is pretty good at it too!
Strolls in the country have also been a feature of this summer....
Hm, you get some strange folks in the country - even if it is only a couple of miles from town!
Trips to London were also on the cards, for wargames and meeting blog friends.
Agg brought a few gifts for us. He gave us some sweets that looked like cookies - they were great and helped us survive the trip home. He also gave us a bottle of A1 Sauce - something that I requested. It seems to appear in all sorts of TV shows, movies and books, but you can't buy it here. Our verdict? Rather good - very similar to Worcester Sauce, but thicker so it works better when you put a blob on your plate. I think our daughter is working her way through it.
Early Autumn brought some great sunsets...
and spiders - not so great for some people, but they do make interesting photos. Strange critters - I like them in fields, not so much in the house.
Hope you enjoyed those! Lunch is over, back to work, I am afraid!
