It's Holiday time in the Hadley household and I will be away for a few days next week, which means even fewer posts than I have been doing of late! I won't be taking any painting gear with me on this trip, I doubt if I'll have much time given we will be cramming as much as we can into our very short break. However I will try to upload a few pictures in the evening (time and wi-fi connection permitting) especially as we intend on visiting a couple of interesting museums while we are away. I still have a week and half off work after we return from our short holiday and I'm hoping to get some painting (and maybe even a game or two) done then, fingers crossed!
|One of the museums I'm hoping to revisit is the Spitfire & Hurricane Memorial Museum at Manston. I took this picture of their Spitfire Mk XVI last time I was there, way back in 2004.|
Initially we were hoping to book two weeks away somewhere but due to my eldest daughters Duke of Edinburgh Award commitments (meaning I need to be taxi service etc) we had to cut that down to a week and then when her plans changed again even that became impossible. So now Mrs BigLee, the Young Padawan and myself will be going away for just three days and we'll be doing it without my eldest. It's not the first time she hasn't been away with us but it's still a very strange feeling, especially this summer where she has been away for four out of the last five weeks. She's growing up fast and starting to live her own life... and boy does that makes me feel old!
