Hello 2012!

We're back after a week and a bit in Sydney where the Rosbif family spent Christmas with relatives and saw in the New Year watching the fireworks on Coogee beach. In between we went to the Harry Potter exhibition with the rest of Sydney, spent a lot of time at the beach and went sight-seeing.

I had tentatively tried to organise a meeting with Dux Alanus of Homunculorum fame, but realised it was just not possible with all the things we'd planned and promised the kids we'd do. Ah well; next time!

Anyway, I got a bit of wargaming/blogging loot in the stocking this year; a camera tripod, book and some terrain from Mum; the next book in the Goldsworthy series with some cash from my Father-in-law; and lastly an engraved pocket knife from Mrs. Rosbif. How is this wargaming/blogging related, I hear you ask? Check out the photos below!

Also included are the finshed command stands. I need to get cracking tomorrow to get the last artillery stands finshed, but with the 40o + weather we've been having down here, I'll be racing to get them finished before the weekend! Cooler weather forecast from this evening onwards, thank God!

PS. It looks like the Italians have just squeaked in as the readers' choice for the La Bricole paintng contest. Thanks to you all who voted! I'll get cracking with them after the Wagram weekend coming up.
