A busy weekend ...

I had planned to spend some time this weekend working on the redraft of my INTERBELLUM rules ... but as Clausewitz so wisely stated 'No plan survives first contact with the enemy' (or in my case, elderly relatives).

Due to unforeseen circumstances, on Saturday my wife and I ended up driving to and fro across South East England, first to visit my father who was having problems with his drugs regime and his door keys (the two things are not linked), and then on to my father-in-law who wanted to be taken halfway across Kent to visit someone in hospital. All told we ended up driving over 175 miles along some of the busiest roads in the UK on the first warm weekend of the year; this was not particularly easy or restful!

By the time we got home on Saturday night we were so tired that we just 'crashed out'. On Sunday we had to do all the chores that we had been unable to do on Saturday, which is why I have made no progress at all with the rules.

With a bit of luck I might be able to spend an hour or so tomorrow morning doing some work on them ... but knowing my luck something new will crop up to distract me.

  5. Geordie an Exiled FoG,

    I am afraid that there was none in the fridge so I had to 'make do' with several large glasses of cold Diet Coke instead.

    All the best,

    Bob

  6. Conrad Kinch,

    Which of the fifth Commandments are you refering to?

    According to several sources it is either 'Honour your father and your mother' or 'Thou shalt not kill' (it depends upon which version of the Bible you use). Bearing in mind your profession, I hope that it is the former and not the latter!

    All the best,

    Bob
