Yearly reviews??....Ha!

It seems to be a fashion these days to supply a yearly review of one's activities over the previous 12month.
Now that presupposes that one has any detailed recollection of activities that long ago.
Sorry to disappoint, dear followers, but I have always had a shite memory and couldn't begin to tell you what I did 6 months ago, much less 12.  I was going to mention my little job at CUP Classics and then just about remembered that it was over 12 months ago.

And who would even care what I did for a year?  I guess if I don't, sufficient to remember it, I can hardly expect anyone else to!

Suffice to say that I got the Bum's Rush from yet more forums, left Facebook pages I'd been on for ages due to an influx of foreign speaking posts and rubbish dressed as quality, hence the big increase in bloggery from late in the year, which I hope to continue.

Ththththat's all, folks.  Bored already?
Yuck, yuck, yuck.................See you next year, friends.  A Happy New Year to you all.


  1. Now that's a review!

    Many thanks for the tips, instruction and entertainment during 2013. Looking forward to more in 2014. Best wishes for the New Year. Chas

  2. Chas, you're very welcome and in return thanks for your inspiring modelmaking.

  3. I hope your bloggery continues too, thanks for all the straight-talking and inspiration in 2013! I suppose in some senses blogging is vanity, but the "reviews of the year" are all pushing it a bit far..I wouldn't presume that anyone would give a damn!
    I echo Chas's wishes for all the best to you and yours for 2014.

  4. Iain, I think bloggery is a vanity, but when that same straight talking gets you chucked off the simpering forums, it's the only way you can say your piece.
    I do it because a dear friend in the States suggested it as a relief from those self same forums. He knows me better than most! I figure, once begun, you owe it to the guys who look at it to add to it regularly. And since I rarely have a shortage of things to say, that'll be continued from tomorrow on.
    New year best wishes to all. Current weather suggests we'll all need boats alongside wherever we live!

  5. Having only recently found your blog (via Iain) I too hope it continues into 2014. I never understand the need for a year in review on a blog; it's not as if there isn't a handy list of post titles arranged chronologically down the left hand side!

    Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, Mark, you too. Exactly, that list on the left does rather tell all doesn't it?
