Awaiting me on my painting desk was an unexpected package. My first thought was "What have I bought this time? I don't even remember ordering this!"
Nothing at all to do with my uncontrollable purchasing predilections as it turns out... Inside was a surprise from the lovely Tamsin of Wargaming Girl, a rendition of my good self hard at work in the back yard priming miniatures like a maniac and decked out in the now infamous GIMP mask of Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge fame.
To say that cheered me up would be an understatement of epic proportions. It's things like this that reinforce for me how much of a wonderful community we share as wargames bloggers. That someone from the other side of the world would take the time and effort to put a smile on my face speaks volumes.
THANK YOU Tamsin :-)
