Yesterday was my 12th Wedding Anniversary. I got some very nice DVDs, but after doing a little research I found out that twelve years of marriage is a 'silk' wedding anniversary. I was a little disappointed to learn that there is no pewter or lead wedding anniversary, or even for that matter, a resin wedding anniversary. This seems somewhat remiss of the wedding anniversary organising people.
In fact when you think about it, it seems a trifle one sided- gold wedding anniversary; diamond wedding anniversary, ruby wedding anniversary.
There’s not much in there for the blokes. Where is the ‘X-box Wedding Anniversary’? It’s almost as if the people who came up with the lists for what anniversary gifts you should be given were all married women who had a vested interest in getting lots of nice presents of their other halfs.
But surely that’s not very likely?
Anyway, enough rambling. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t posted anything for a while. Well I guess a bit of painting fatigue has crept in following the Lead Painters League. I painted over sixty figures in ten weeks, and while it was fun it was exhausting. I had a couple of evenings off to play on Skyrim, but now I am back to the business of painting my modern Africans. The first stage is almost complete, and I will be posting a big ‘reveal’ when they are finished, rather than showing them piecemeal.
