Fathers Day Gifts and Joy of Six/Baccus Open Day

It's that day of the year again where countless pairs of socks booze and slippers are handed over by smiling sons and daughters. Well not in our house it's not. Two of the six Sharpe books I don't own was a nice addition as I am in the process of reading through the whole series so good timing. As I don't eat chocolate it was great to get the Caramac. There was two packs of three but me and the kids saw the end of the first pack, just to check the quality you understand.

Last up was the Tree Armatures, enough to make 57 deciduous trees that I want to get done for the game in exactly 5 weeks time! Ian is going to be a busy boy all right.

Yes only five weeks to go until we will be putting on the display game that is just a taster of the Waterloo game we hope to have ready in less than a year. I booked Lee and myself in on the Baccus Open Day and the Curry for that evening. Should be a real fun day though I can't get the image of Lee bent over the table in the restaurant with a load of flags whilst I have a similar pose with bits of trees spread around my curry.

Anyone interested in attending the Baccus Open Day click here, it's very informative and lots of fun. Seeing Peter supply a coffee and a chocolate biscuit out of his own pocket is worth going alone LOL.

    1. Not bad at all, made up a tree, watched a film with the kids and played ASL in the evening. Not sure what I did to deserve the good fortune

  2. Aw you'll be fine for the demo game. Plenty of time.

    Nice, useful presents. It's now nearly one o'clock one and I've had nowt yet for Fathers' Day. However, I live in hope of the mandatory T-shirt and Toblerone . . . .

  3. Nice gifts from the kids Ian. For the trees, get them involved and set up a production line (reserve some of the Caramac for their payment/bribe)

    1. The devils have been forward paid, though the idea of them working on the trees leaves me in a cold sweat.

  6. Thanks Tim, enjoying reading these books mixed in with Naps history, History of China in the last 150 years and The Walking Dead novels, hope I don't confuse it all
