Back to work… Yeah, right!

What a mad week! Twenty years of nation building and the President decides that it wasn’t that vital anyhow and we can run off. Poor old Britain decided that they really should leave but we must get the pets home before our local supporters! And France is arguing if it’s military need to work more than eleven hours a day! I wish I hadn’t turned the television on….

Don’t forget to leave enough kit to arm the victors and promise to pay them for good behaviour!

I love being in the hills. It was hard work this year but sometimes you need a break. The castles on the Beacons way are still as intriguing as ever, the lakes as mysterious but the hills are definately harder work…

Carreg Cennen- west Beacons
Tumult on the Mynydd du
The Lady of the Lake was out!
Forest Fawr and the set for the film Young Winston: this was the train track with the Boers on the ridge

Little did I realise what was happening in the World where modern day hill dwellers were about to put the clock back in Central Asia.

Why don’t we just give up on modernity?

Whilst the news is bad for female students and those who believe the promises of politicians, we here in Cardiff are blessed with the Grand Opening of Firestorm Games.

It’s amazing! Two floors of gaming for the 21 st century!
We have followed Firestorm games from basement, to warehouse, to this! Congratulations to Rob for this amazing achievement! Firestorm Motorbikes!
Gaming tables on two floors supported by a bar and restaurant! Heaven in Cardiff!
First class food ! Yours truly was actually part of the chef interview so you know it’s going to be fine fayre!
So, the real world maybe going mad but an oasis of calm exists! Did I really say calm?

Join me tomorrow for in depth analysis of my first defeat! Keep reading for the ambitious plans of Cardiff Dice Studz! What ( else) could possibly go wrong?

  1. Great to see everyone returning to work while I am 2/3 through my annual leave, with just 4 months leave left for this year. I will have Firestorm to myself in the daytime to cheer me on. l will definitely have to pay a daytime visit in the week to stock up on goodies, I could do with some more Phalangites and probably a unit or two of Thuropoli.

  2. You are truly blessed to have a gaming venue like that. In the munchkin land of Oz we drool for such venues to spend out hard earned. There a few people that sometimes don’t like my shits either!

  3. Drool even further, in addition to the gaming venue, we have 5 functioning clubs within a 25 radius of Cardiff, we are truly blessed and spoiled for choice. The important thing however, wherever you are is that you enjoy your gaming and I sincerely hope you do.
