22 years married & still going strong...!

I know that I am super late in sharing this special 'tune' - but Tony; happy 22nd wedding anniversary for the 10th, I know that this must mean that we are officially 'old skool!'... But, with you by my side -  I wouldn't have it any other way...!

Yule Tide Christmas Shop - Out Now!

Good afternoon everyone,

Yule Tide Christmas Shop
Sadly, due to circumstances beyond our control, the launch of our new ‘Intermediate’ range of quarter scale kits was regretfully slightly delayed.

However, we are delighted to announce that the first kit in this new series; Yule Tide Christmas Shop, is now available to purchase via our online shop -

Further pictures and information about this much anticipated new kit can also be found on our newly updated website:

Finally, once again our apologies for the delay in releasing this exciting new 1:48th scale kit, but we hope that you will all enjoy it and we simply can’t wait to unveil what is coming next…!

Bad Blogger!!

Hello everyone and apologies!

As my mother would no doubt point out, classically I started out ‘blogging’ with every good intention to keep it up and then ker-boom... real life and 'work' inevitably intervened!
What can I say?.... I am a lost ‘blogging’ cause….

So first of all I should probably start with a very humble ‘thank you’ and ‘welcome’ to all my new followers =0) all 66 of you!
You are so very welcome here and also I must add my apologies for being simply quite rubbish at this whole ‘blogging scene!’
I am not sure that I will entertain you all with this blog…  after all I am not really sure what I am going to post on it; but safe to say the content of it will probably surprise me as much as it does you!

Anyhoo…. In the meantime I promise faithfully to do better in future!

But for now, with my (AIM) Editor’s hat on, I must also confess that the end / beginning of any month are always a tad busy and so given where we are on the calendar; apologies - as my mind and attention have not been collectively on the ‘blogging ball’.

However, rest assured that these flimsy excuses and *puppy eyes* are now officially a thing of the past and following a very serious talk with myself, I promise (Scout’s honour) that I will try my best to be a much better and more frequent blogger!

A 'practice' post in disguise...!

Now I am not declaring that the subject of this post is in anyway exciting news and ordinarily I certainly wouldn’t bother to share it, but the arrival of a bumper batch of new business cards this morning presented me with an opportunity for another practice post here on my new blog.  So here I am.

The business cards are pretty standard and yes I am pleased with them.  Happily this time I actually remembered to include my telephone number on them too – last time I ordered some; I forgot!
I kid you not…

Taking my first (tentative) steps...

I am not sure which wind blew me into 'blog land', but like Dorothy in Oz; I have certainly landed with a bump!
However, despite a disheveled  landing, it is great to  finally be here and I am looking forward to getting to grips with blogging technology!... Which on first glance reveals that there is so much to learn! *gulp*
In the meantime, please do bear with me as I attempt to work out which buttons are safe to press and which ones should clearly remain more than an arm's length away from me at all times...!
