If you've been paying attention, you may have noticed my hobby progress slowing to a bare minimum recently. I managed a little painting this week, a few of the base layers on the Nob for the second squad, but nothing very impressive. I have a bit of a dilemma in that I don't want to force myself to paint when I'm not in the mood as it sucks all the fun out of it, but I know that if I tell myself to only paint when I feel like it I won't get anything done. I've decided that this week (and very probably next week) I'm not going to push myself to paint and hopefully the break from having it hanging over me will help get some of my energy back. If the mood strikes me I'll get some done, but if not I'll try not to get too annoyed about it.

In the meantime, I hope to have some additional blog content for you. I realised yesterday that while I haven't been making much painting progress there are a couple of other things I could easily write posts about. Increasing the rate of blog posting should salve my conscience a bit for slacking off the painting.
