Lindsay was off so there was a fair bit of just hanging out, but one of the things she wanted to achieve this week was to paint a couple of walls in the kitchen, which she and Megan did on Thurdsay.

And it looks really nice, and we moved the bins to beside the door and the coffee station to where the bins were.

I am not very good at painting walls, so I supported by making cups of tea and cooking our tea for the night.

On Saturday we did a little tour of County Durham as we delivered things to friends, stuff that we still had a hold of for them, books, models etc. And we were able to swing by Megan’s mum on the way and pick up a clock from her, which formally lived at her nannies until she recently went to live in a retirement home.

So Saturday evening, me and Megan hung it on the newly painted wall in the kitchen, althouh we do now need to touch the wall up a little as it was scratched in a couple of spots when mounting it.

But overall the kitchen looks really nice now.

We also dropped two podcast episodes this week, the first is a Hobby Studio in which we talk The Walking Dead: All Out War, Star Wars: Legion and building a list for Age of Sigmar.

And Edge of Empire episode 3 of year 5 dropped as well!

What I Am Modelling

First thing I did was to finish off some Sentinel Guard for both 40K and Heresy, which were actually a lot of fun to paint.

I then moved on to a trio of Riptides, these have been intimidating me a bit but I focused on getting the main armour colour on, then working on them one by one.

The first one was finished on Wednesday, and is the oldest one I own, and I am so glad it’s fully painted now.

I finished the second one on Thursday night whilst on stream.

And the third and final one was finished on Friday.

This allowed me to move on a Sanguinary Priest and Primaris Apothecary for the Blood Angels.

So what’s on my painting queue going into next week then?

What I Am Reading

I am reading First Team by Robbie MacNiven and that should be finished by tonight

What I Am Playing

No tabletop games, but I did play a couple of hours of Star Wars: Squadrons today which I was awful at!

Planning the Assassins Creed playthrough, which is gonna start in April, and now I own all of the games on the Xbox and they are ready to play after I picked up the Ultimate Edition of Assassins Creed Valhalla in a sale.

What I Am Backing

I have backed the Dungeon Master’s Little Black Book, which looks like it might be a very nice addition to the DMs toolbox, and at £2 for a PDF isn’t bad at all.

I really want to back Stellaris, but the VAT and Customs Duties are going to be too high, so sadly I have to say no, thanks Brexit!!!

I am pretty sure as a household we are going to back Gloomier, we are big fans of Gloom, so this looks pretty good to us.

What I Am Cooking

On Monday I made my Italian Winter Soup for tea, which is really nice, filled with vegetables, lentils and orzo.

On Tuesday I cooked again and I made Slow Cooked Chinese Style Beef. I love Chinese flavours and we don’t really eat them much in our house, but I am trying to change that a little bit.

This was base on a BBC recipe but we added more veg, specifically some carrots and Savoy cabbage.

And on Thursday whilst the girls decorated, I made tea again, this time a slow cooked Sriracha Chilli Chicken.

And this morning I made some quiches for breakfast, they were very nice, but Lindsay was not that big a fan!
