Long post

Yes, it's been awhile since my last post, since then we have been to England for a couple of weeks to visit friends and family, which was nice. Tina has got into crafting her own greetings cards so we visited the local Hobbycraft store to stock up with all sorts of bits and bobs. I must admit I have found it interesting too and have ordered a couple of CDs from Joanna Sheen's website and can't wait for them to come so we can make some cards together. I think Tina became interested when our friend Pauline showed her some of her cards. It's nice because it's something we can both enjoy.
We flew back to Austria on April 13th, which was just as well as they closed the airspace on the 15th because of the volcano in Iceland spewing it's ash cloud all over northern europe. Pauline and Stephen were over here when we got back so we managed to get one game of Stone Age in before they 'flew' back....well they didn't fly, they had a protracted rail journey to Ostend then ferry to Ramsgate.
The weather here has been a bit weird lately, sun, rain and snow would you believe, sometimes on the same day! Today has been lovely though, we went on the bus to Bad Ischl, about 14km away, for some shopping. I got the first series of Rome on DVD for 14.99, which wasn't bad. We have just walked along by the lake and sat in the sunshine watching snow covered mountains in the distance.
Anyway, that's all for now.....Happy Gaming!!
