Milestones, Moves and Man Caves

There are lots of things going on in the Duchy at the moment. In two weeks the Duchess and I will gather our retinue and move to a different castle, so we are frantically packing, cleaning and spending money like drunken sailors in a brothel. One fantastic hobby related thing about the move is this:



It may just look like a table to you, but you are looking at my dedicated hobby space in the new house. Yep, I will no longer have to set up my gear on the dining room table every night and then clear it away again. Half the room at the front of the house is going to be the Duchess' study, and the other half my Man Cave, or if not quite a complete cave, at least a pothole or overhanging rock. There will be a DMZ down the middle of the room, and the Duchess already understands that if there aren't' actually rats scampering around in my half of the room she can't comment on the hobby squalor I plan to generate.



Meanwhile, my blog has just hit 250,000 page views! Thank you to everyone who visits my humble blog and comments on posts. It is great to have such a strong sense of nerdy community. This milestone of course warrants some sort of Tamsin-esque incredible giveaway, but I'll have to wait a few weeks until the move is all completed. However, as Neil Shuck on Meeples and Miniatures would say, 'watch this space'.

  2. congrats on 250K

    I hope the move goes well - remember if anything gets lost or broken in transit that's just natures way of telling you you didn't really need it!

    1. The only problem with man overhang is that it conjures up not being able to see your toes or other bits when you look down.

    There's nothing quite like having your own little corner for your toys - stand back and watch it spread ;)

  14. Nothing better than to have place to keep your stuff without having to remove everything every evening.

    I paint on the kitchen table, but then again... it is big enough i only have to remove my stuff when we get visitors, so I can live with it.

  15. Nice one! I'm lucky enough to be divorced and live alone. I can, therefore, ignore safely any clear-desk initiatives and pile my stuff up as and where I please.

    Regards

    PS This is not an endorsement of divorce as a means to achieve the man-cave dream.

  16. Congrats! I'm currently living the life of a dining table squatter and some nights just the thought of setup and tear down is enough to deter me from painting. Here's to improved productivity!
