Last Saturday the girls were out of the house for the afternoon. This meant Ronin and I had some time to kill. I had planned to put up some shelving in my study (I have games on my chair and floor!) but instead I decided to crack open the First Strike Warhammer 40K starter box and see if Ronin would like it.
It was Sunday morning and I had the house to myself. I didn’t want to watch TV and I was not in the mood to paint some models so I thought I’d have a game and try my hand at another write up. Zulus on the Ramparts was getting a lot of attention on the Solo Wargames group recently and that made be keen to play it again.
This weekend saw the 2017 Blood Bowl kick off for the Warbanner gaming club. With a total of 9 players, every one still green to the game, we had a fun Sunday of football mayhem!
It was a Friday night, Pria was cramming for her Strategic Management exam on Saturday. The kids were also studying, their exams were starting the following Monday. My study had flooded on Thursday night and everything was in a bit of a state so I could not finish the models I was working on. I did the next best thing, play some board games.
…because I have some really bad luck. Take this past weekend for example. South Africa is having a drought and the province of Gauteng is in the middle of a heatwave so I’ve not been sleeping well. For some reason, last Saturday, I was up early. I don’t know why but I can get up early on a Saturday but never on a weekday. I head to the bathroom to wash up. There’s no water. Not just my place but the entire neighbourhood, during a heatwave! On top of that, everyone in the house has exams coming up except me so whatever I do to entertain myself but I must not make a racket.
