The dust has settled.

Hello and welcome to a normal Sunday at Inso's World.

It has been a quiet week again but I have needed it in order to land after a rather boozy Christmas and new year. Luckily, I have made a pact with my son to go dry for January and put what I would have spent, into a charity pot for one of his friends. My pub landlord is very graciously buying my soft drinks for me so that helps as well. The bonus is that I don't drink for a month and a charity gets some pennies... Winner!

To be very frank, the weather has been RANK this week. Storms, heavy rain, bitter cold, very strong winds... we've had it all (not snow, thankfully). Luckily, I managed to get one day where I felt it was OK to go for a ride on my new motorcycle and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I even saw a glimpse of sunshine while I was out! I am hoping that things cheer up a bit more so that I can get out and about a bit more because I need to get 600 miles on the clock before my first service and my little windscreen fitted. That said... there is always a little bit of light to be found in any circumstance...

At the end of the month, I have a 'top table' to go to. Basically, it's a formal dining event to mark a special occasion. This one is to join a friend of mine at his leaving do... 29 years RAF service. I joined up with him and we were on the same three-year apprenticeship together. I am expecting it to be a great evening.

From a hobby perspective, I have been all over the place. A lack of sleep has fired up my imagination and that is both a good and bad thing. The good thing is that I get lots and lots of new ideas... the bad thing is that I don't really have the motivation or focus to realise the ideas into physical objects. That basically means that I have half drawn pictures and bits of glued together things that will sit and fester until I get the motivation to work on them. However, it doesn't mean that I haven't done anything. I currently have a 'Frogulon' as a WIP and a Squat version of Sly Marbo. Unfortunately, they aren't at a point where I want to show them off yet so maybe that will happen next week... who knows?

That's about it for now. As is usually the case (recently), I hope to have something interesting for next week.

See you from the Rodney Inn, Helston!

I want to see your Frogulon when it's ready. Is it one of those hooded froggy guys you used to do?

I reckon it'll be ready for next week... and it's a conversion of a Gydran miniature so it's different to my little hooded dudes... he has a powerfist and is wearing powered armour for starters.

The one I am working on is the captain of a pirate vessel so he is quite imposing...
