ARRRRGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! ADHD RELATED STRESS OVERLOAD>>> 

Just had a phone interview this morning, offered a job starting on Monday. With Kirsty at Art School Wed-Friday this is now a nightmare scenario. 

Have to try and sort before and after school care for my 6 year old and all day care for my 2.5 year old on a wed, thu and fri. For next week... Or I can't take the job. Bloody hell in a handbasket. My brain is firing all over the place. Mental overload.

+George Takei thought he would appreciate this. Cheered me up when I had to take my daughter to A&E with breathing problems today.

Open invitation for anyone wanting to apply. Last season was great fun. Get your practice on before blood bowl 2 comes out!
 
Sunday Sunday Sunday! A day made for Beer and American Football! You can still get in on the action - we have 5 slots left in our 12 team schedule. He who hesitates has to sit in the cheap seats!

I am afraid I can't. I am knee deep in a painting project and then I am taking the family to St Andrews on Thursday so will be painting.

Also I have no terrain built at all! Haven't played in ages. After my painting project is finished I might have to build some!

The public domain, SVG-format tabletop spaceship counters collection expanded to 281 counters this morning. The A4-sized preview sheet (shown here) is now full except for 3 slots.

As usual, they can be downloaded from their public GDrive folder:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-LwmfRxDIPvVFhUdVpxRzMtb2c

Holy cow - looking at my archives, this collection is now just over 5 years old (i thought it was 3... how time flies). The first upload was May 30, 2010, with 65 counters.

Happy Gaming!

Just on the edge of madness today. Hanging on by my finger nails. Can't seem to focus on anything with any kind of clarity. Been stumbling around all day.

On the plus side I have managed to just about stay ahead of the curve in terms of adult requirements. But sanity is running low.

+Stuart McGowan  Should be coming home tomorrow. My phone ran out of power and I forgot to lift my charger. You fancy anything on Tuesday? I will definitely want out of the house after this weekend. Could bring over the xbox for another terrarria run through. I nearly took that temple guardian  myself on Friday night.

I am so broke it is worth it. I have the process down. So if used can sell them then it funds my 40k hobby and gives me spare cash that I desperately need for bills.

Re-sharing because progress! My goal seems high but it's what's been agreed as a good target with my small business coach and I plan on making this happen!! My sons mom is having her brain surgery next month but things are looking okay on that front so that's a relief. She may be my ex but she will always be one of my best friends and my sons mother. I've caught some shit for "caring too much" and those "people" can eff off honestly. I care about people and I've noticed through doing so the universe sends that shit back.
