Another big project finished!


Remember me telling you I'd post something on those MDF buildings I was putting together "if nothing else happened"?  What I knew and you probably not, was that one of those real life projects one looks forward to immensely is now finished. On August 24th our second son Hugo was born.

From now on the hobby will be on the backburner a bit, for some time. I am still up to doing some smaller stuff like painting the odd resin furniture or scatter terrain piece. But no big regiments painting.

Well anyway here's to Hugo: bottoms up!

Congrats on the new arrival. Have fun and sleep while you can!

Congratulations Sander! Hugo is a very handsome lad. Enjoy!

Michael Awdry said...

Fabulous news, very many congratulations.

Reginald Ogilvie said...

Congratulations Sander. Both my daughters are getting married next year so maybe a Grandchild in the near future for me?

Michael Mills said...

Congrats to you and your family mate! This is wonderful news. So... another fireman in the making? Or perhaps some other variety of first responder? :-)

Sander said...

Thanks heaps for the nice words gents!

@Reginald: according to my parents being a grandparent is far more fun than being a parent since you get all the fun and far less of the "not-so-fun". ;-)

@Millsy: well that's complicated! Arthur is actually set on being a farmer who's a voluntary fireman. He's figured out that Hugo needs to be a park ranger to keep all the critters away from the farm... so you try and figure it out!

Congrats on you both, lovely picture of the boys, maybe planning their first moves against you in a future game LOL

Many congrats and all the very best!
Let me tell you from own experience that the second one goes somehow easier and more relaxed.
