Things have been a little quite here at BLMA HQ. I've been ill again with my fifth bout of Cellulitis in the past six months. I spent most of last weekend killing brain cells with a high temperature. Needless to say painting, gaming and blogging came to a complete halt for a few days. Fortunately this time the infection hasn't been too bad (I now have antibiotics at home to take immediately a flare up starts) and I'm almost fully recovered after just a week. Previous occurrences have taken up to five weeks to clear and on one occasion put me in hospital for a week and a half.
My swift recovery is very good news because I plan on being at SELWG this Sunday and for a while I wasn't sure I would be able to make it. I'm taking a load of stuff along to sell on the Bring and Buy Stand and hope to make enough money to buy yet more stuff (primarily the Flames of War Kit Bag). This is my first venture into selling via a Bring and Buy and if it works out smoothly I may do it again... I have LOTS of stuff I could sell given a little thought and some organisation on my part.
I desperately need the new storage space as my restless hands are constantly seeking new projects to complete. While I was off sick one such project - a US Parachute Rifle Company - arrived in the post. Unfortunately I had it delivered to my place of work because I don't trust the Royal Mail to deliver it to my house without loosing it or having it stolen (both have happened before). At least with deliveries to my office I know there will always be someone to take receipt of the parcel and it gets delivered via a different sorting office (where the staff are less light fingered).
The downside of course is that when I'm off work, the parcel sits on my desk until I return. Typically in this case it arrived last Friday, about five minutes after I went home feeling ill! This is a crying shame because I could have got started on them while I was off, especially the last couple of days when I started feeling a little more human again.
I'll crack this box open when I get home tonight and get started over the weekend. Not sure how much I'll get done though but at least the project will be under way.
