A news story just breaking is that Actor Michael Sheard has just died.
Many will have met Michael at a number of conventions around the UK in
which he was a familiar face. He was a friendly and fun person and even
helped out in a couple of LARP events we ran taking the roll of a NPC
In the wider world he will be remember for his rolls in Grange Hill and Star Wars.
The news hasn't said how he died as it's currently on banner rotation for Breaking News on the BBC site.
Today has ended up a non-day. One of those days in which you had a number of things planned, and back-up plans if they failed, but end up doing nothing.
Part of it was due to the heat and a restless nights sleep that left me feeling shitty this morning. Part of it was due to everyone else having the day off and just chilling with them which was nice.
So far today has largely consisted of water fights, ice cream, Rawk Music, water fights and a trip to Tesco's.
Didn't make it to Milton Keynes. Didn't catch up on my emails. Didn't write anything.
This evening the usual suspects are coming over for some games which I'm looking forward to.
On the subject of games - I'm looking for a copy of Games Workshop's "Mighty Armies" is anyone has one they wish to part with. I played it for the first time on Monday and really enjoyed it. For some reason I never looked at it when it was available (my loss).
