About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

4 is for "On the fourth day of Chrissssstmaaas...."

A fourth snowman!

So he'd got the measure of it by now - he hopes? The quirk of his 'True Love' in sending a snowman was writ large, she was clearly going to send 12, it was 'quirk' all right - on another level!

They got the unloading down to 14 minutes...plenty of time for a coffee and bit of small-talk with Gina . . . didn't I mention the driver was called Gina? She was.


Chalkware snowmen are an old favourite of mine, and I have more in storage, we may even have looked at them on the blog, until a few years ago I would have said "you can still get these" meaning they were still contemporary, I now think they are getting thin on the ground and if you are lucky enough to find mint ones in a bakers they are probably old stock, not replacement stock?
