One of Those Days

Yesterday was one of those days. Missed the end of two ebay auctions that I should have won because I forgot the end time. Lost another because I sniped too early. discovered I'd ordered two ironclads from Peter Pig of a type where there was only one ship in the class (and ordered one of a class where there were two), submitted the wrong set of orders in an online Diplomacy game, thus reassigning my formerly "shakey" position as "no hope", and had a tube of superglue burst over my fingers.

Still, on the plus side we did have a nice afternoon out at the local Am Dram society's performance of "The Railway Children" (sadly without a spectacular on-stage appearance by a train, but they did a great job with stage smoke, sound efects and lighting), topped off with fish and chips and a nice white wine, and then followed by a completely unexpected early birthday present - thanks Steve :)

So all in all, not a bad day. And happy that the only things that were screwed up were, in reality, not that important at all. Apart from the glue. Messy!


  1. Finished off with a nice white wine sauce? Cant go wrong with that! :-D

    Been there done that, got the extra models. Can you convert the extra one to another class or a wreck? If not cannibalism is always an alternative.


  3. Actually there is a conversion in the offing - more details to follow :)
