So first off, Merry Christmas one and all! Here’s hoping Santa has left your threadbare stockings full to bursting with hobby related goodies!
As you may have noticed, I have suddenly gone AWOL from the blog, as well as facebook and pretty much every other hobby related social media that I use. I don’t really want to go into it here, but needless to say this is down to a pretty major crisis in my personal life which has led me to take stock of what I do with my time and re-evaluate my priorities.
Unfortunately, in the face of what is going on in ‘real life’, the blog (and indeed the entire hobby at large) has been found wanting, and so I will be taking an extended leave of absence while I try to deal with the real life issues. When comparing losing the hobby to what I could be losing in my life, there is no real comparison, and so it is the hobby that must go.
Or rather, for now at least. I hope to be back in the future, but near or far I do not know – we shall have to wait and see. So lay off the Sherry and have a proper drink, and if the mince pies don’t get you over the festive season we will, God willing, see each other again the other side!
