This has meant that whilst I've started the Eton Rifles, they won't be finished till the weekend. They're a fun project and I want to enjoy painting them rather than slapping on a coat of paint and splodge of DPM for the sake of the blog.
From next week I'm leading a new team. I can't say that I'm not chuffed at the opportunity and looking forward to the challenge. And the challenge isn't so much managing down, I very much intend to mould the team to manage their own agreed workload based on the client's required outcomes and lead by example. No the challenge is still managing upwards. But it's the weekend - time to switch off and recuperate.
Wednesday night's game........... superb. Not least because I won of course, and against increasing odds to boot. Debriefing with Maff ....we're both happy with how the events and politics flow from our games to influence the next one. Rather than having them directed by a script, eg the Taffs learn from this shambles and aim to increase number of cadre elements in units, and focus on better training.....if time allows it. The Paras now believe three Toms are worth ten Taffs. Hubris? Will they consequently stage an operation that has all the hallmarks of being "A Taff Too Far". Why the hell not!
Going to SKELP in Forfar on Saturday and meeting up with Major Mike. If you are there and want to look me up and say 'hello' please do.
