Having taken in the Shildon Show last year, I am intending to once more brave the wilds of the Southern wastelands to visit this great show. I'm also looking forward to meeting fellow blogger Roy Williamson of the blog Never mind the Jankers.
For once, I have a few things on my list which I'd like to purchase and have some limited funds (advanced Xmas money) with which to do so (unlike the Gateshead show I recently attended on a shoe-string).
In other news:
I have had an enforced absence from all things blogging realted recently due to a resurgence of an illness I've had over the last few years. Whilst this is is bad enough I lost two days to being bed-ridden by flue (though mostly unaware of what was going on around me.
Of course this has left me with the job of trying to clear the back-log of blogs I regularly like to both visit and comment upon, but I've been trying to make the effort. Apologies to daGobbo though, whose blog seemed to have vacated itself from my reading list! (All OK now though.
In addition to the several carrier-bags of meds I have to take over the coming weeks, I also have two imminent hospital visits, having already had two and just for good measure a couple of optical test too -just to discover I now have a least one other problem in its infancy and one pending!
Take it from me people, getting old sucks big time - don't do it!
I'd also like to thanks the two bloggers that showed such consideration after my fortnight's absence from the blogging front - that's two more than when I disappeared from the interweb for two months a year or so ago!
In yet more news, some of you may be aware, I lost someone, about two years ago, whom I thought would be regular gaming opponent but a southern friend has recently moved North and now lives a mere five minute walk from my house. Even though he is mainly a fantasy player (I know, I know) he has expressed interest in gaming with me in some of the projects, so things could be on the up!
Thanks for visiting and if you've taken the time to read to read through all of the above drivel - you're a braver man than I.
All comments of course are welcomed and appreciated.
