We started the day by taking Tristan the horse across the road for another day’s “babysitting” of the foal Rio. They bonded immediately. I tried to get some photographs but failed – they were too busy moving about.
Next off to Basingstoke to traipse the shops looking for birthday presents for me. We managed to find some good hiking socks for my walks with Sparky and the last pack in the shop of Posca fine point acrylic paint pens.
These gifts were taken home and wrapped as a surprise for me…!
While shopping I gathered a few ideas for Chrissy’s birthday in a fortnight’s time.
We made a plan for my day: to drive down to the Dorset coast and visit a couple of places from my childhood, walking from Worth Matravers to Winspit on the Jurassic Coast.
I have made a start on my 3 mm/1:600 Celtic Warband. The figures are =supplied in close-order strips of 8, but I want a more irregular arrangement so I snipped most of the bases into twos, threes, fours, fives and sixes. They will need to be trimmed at the cutting points.
Tristan was fetched back from babysitting duty. He looks tired.
In the evening I joined my alumni from Primrose Lodge in a Zoom meeting. Good to hear how my friends are making progress.
