Is The World Still Out There?

I've not left the house today. In fact, I opened the front door to put an empty bottle in the recycling bin but other than that I haven't even had any fresh air in here. That's probably bad isn't it?

Sara was on an overnight at work last night as they were decorating the bar and she had a big meeting all day today. She's not even home yet as the lights are getting switched on in Winchester and the whole town is heaving apparently.

So what have I been up to? Precisely two things. Well, three if you include cooking myself some lunch. Fuck it, let's round up to four; I had a nice relaxing bath this morning too.

Other than that I've played a lot of Red Dead; mostly hunting today, I caught a couple of the legendary animals and got some perfect pelts so I can craft some cool new gear. I've also tricked out Arthur so he looks just like Detective Miller from The Expanse, so that's fun.

The other thing I've been doing is painting the squad of Rebel Commandos for Star Wars Legion I picked up last week. I've decided I probably won't be going to the event in Poole next Sunday but getting back started on these guys has been fun. I've only put on a few base colours so far and there's a lot more to do, but while I've got time off and podcasts on in the background it's a really nice thing to do.

Our dining room table has become a bit of a craft space at the moment as Sara has out the sowing machine to make pillow cases for the pub and her light box is still down here too.

That'll all be getting tidied away at the weekend when Ed's down to play Gloomhaven though.
