Still here (kind of)...

G'day All,

A number of people have reached out to check on me knowing we have awful bushfires here at the moment. The scale defies explanation and what the media reports is just the tip of the iceberg. I've been out fighting them with the RFS almost non-stop since mid-November now which accounts for the silence and my absence from the AHPC this year. Gutted as I am to be missing out it was better someone else take my spot as I have no time to paint whatsoever.

So to those who have reached out a MASSIVE thank you for checking in on me. I have been trying to reply where possible but if I have missed you I apologise and want you to know I really appreciate your thoughts. With everything we are dealing with, knowing people worry about us is really special. My world has shrunk to other firies and a few immediate family so any contact beyond that is absolutely wonderful.

Thankfully, despite everything going on with the fires we are still finding a little time for real life. Here's a pic of me after I returned from spending Christmas Day on the fireground. The pup is one of a pair of Husky x Staffies we rescued recently. Beautiful little guys with lovely temperaments and loads of energy.

All the best and I hope to be back properly some time in the future.


Merry Christmas from C&G!

Well folks, it's that time of year again, time for carol singers, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, maddening heat, etc.

All the gang here at C&G would like to wish all our friends and followers a happy and safe Christmas and a Happy New Year (pay no attention to the Ogre of Corsica and his grumpy dismissals of the season. He's just ticked off because he didn't get Russia for Christmas)!

Stay safe, wherever you are; may your brushes remain sharp, and your jar of Goblin Green never run dry (because that stuff is impossible to get nowadays - by crikey, it's hard being an Oldhammer enthusiast)!

Ev and Millsy
