Regular visitors to this blog come expecting certain things, be it cunning scratch-building using inexpensive materials, mini-projects revolving around life-long passions, creative after-action reports combining atmospheric photography and unusual participants or free rules to download and play. Of late, there hasn’t been much of what attracted YOU, my gentle readers, to this blog in the first place.
Unfortunately, due to employment issues, my free time has been spent attempting to secure regular employment of a level that not only keeps the wolves from my door, but also stops my wife from accusing me of “wasting my time” on hobby-related pursuits, instead of looking for a “decent job.” Understandably, when you have this hanging over your head, hobby mojo does tend to get stifled and you find yourself unable to concentrate properly on any particular hobby project – hence the sporadic and somewhat lacklustre nature of the last few posts.
However, after much scampering back and forth to London for various interviews, I have now been offered a new contract, at a decent daily rate, working in central London, which will be starting in a couple of weeks.
As this will result in becoming a commuter from Reading to “that London”, this may result in not as much free time to do hobby-stuff, but the relief in finally getting a “decent job” has revitalised my mojo and my mind has started lining up projects in my head for me to do within whatever free time I find myself with.
So, this will hopefully signal the end of my fallow patch and see more regular and better postings than you have seen of late.
As for what exactly you’ll see, well…I’m pretty certain they’ll be Ghostbusters, maybe some Scooby Doo, probably some Doctor Who and potentially a return to Blackwell, although my cobbled streets need replacing as they’ve warped during storage, so that might have to wait until I come up with a cunning alternative.
Until next time, “Never backwards, always forward”.
