Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

End of the Summer

The new school year is about to start and this year it is rather special as my eldest son will start primary school.

This summer has been quite nice as, for the first time, he's shown an interest in the things I've been doing. I've even had the chance to do a simple dungeon bash with him which taught him the basic of dice rolling and practiced counting out squares. I thought I came up with the rules but I'm fairly sure my subconscious has kicked up a version of Rab's Knight's Quest work.

In any case, we've had a great time. So to commemorate it, and because this blog is as close to a permanent record as I have, here's a collection of pictures of my son geeking out with his old man. 










It's been a fun summer and bodes well for the future. Thanks for reading as always.

  2. How absolutely adorable and best of luck to the pair of you. Just back from our first day and completely shattered, the summer already seems like a long way away!

    2. I'm dreading my first day back; I've missed both training days due to childcare so I'm walking in and straight into teaching with no prep time. Yikes.
