A Blogger, interrupted...

Dear all,

I would just like to announce that there have been some major goings on affecting 'Bowman Towers' of late... or at least, affecting the 'funding mechanism', keeping Bowman Towers going!

My wife and I have bought our own business together, as we advertised in the local newspaper... as pictured below...



This has been a rapid event, taking 2 months from start to finish, and we feel our feet have hardly touched the ground... getting this all done, in time for the agreed hand over date.

Tuesday was our first day at the helm so to speak, and it has been a bit of a jump in the deep end for us as we get to grip with systems and practices in the business, the computer system in particular, causing me some angst as its one I havent used for 9 years...

This business is also noticeably busier than the one that I have been manager of, prior to this venture.

Now I'll be quite honest here, the last place I was at, was fairly 'cruisy'... and there was certainly spare time to interact with 'social media' in all its various forms... Well the rude shock to my poor little bloggers mind, is that this is likely to come to an abrupt halt, at least until I get the new place figured out...

So, I guess what I am saying is... my blogging output will take a serious dent in the forth coming months, as will my attendance and perusal of your own blogging efforts... I may have time for the odd 'Facebook-like' or 'Google+1'... but that may be it for some time to come...

So I must apologise for my enforced web absence... but rest assured I'll still be in the background beavering away on hobby matters when I get a spare moment... and hope normal service will resume in the not too distant future...

  4. A hearty congratulations to you and your lovely wife on this new and impressive venture! Don't worry 'bout the blogging as getting a handle on your business is paramount. I'm sure down the line you'll have it wired like you did at your previous place.

  14. Don't worry about your blogging we won't forget you. Buying a pharmacy is a zombie apocalypse prepping strategy I hadn't foreseen but its a good one. Seriously good luck in your new adventure.

  15. Congratulations on going with this endevour! I still am amazed how much hobby you manage to get in your life - with wife and kids and life in general, and now this! If I ever come to NZ I'll make sure to get all my drugs from you! ;) (I do have plans on going to Aussieland within two years - just need that 2800 GBP defacto-visa first, haha!)

    I sincerely hope you will manage to get a post or two in between, it is always a pleasure to stop by scottswargming. I wish you all the best!

  22. Good Luck Scott. I'll remember to ask you to bring the pain killers for the Sunday morning when we are up in Palmy for Panzershreck. You can bring the scotch too :)

  23. Congratulations! I suspect that this will be the only pharmacy in town with pots of paint arranged in the nail polish displays...

    "...And something for the weekend sir?" (opens drawer beneath counter to reveal a selection of sable brushes and Perry boxed sets)

    All the very best to you and your good lady wife - I look forward to your return to the blogosphere in due course!

    1. You know, funnily enough I was actually seriously contemplating this, as all the local hobby stores closed down... I had pondered having a hobby section on the side, space allowing... we'll see ;-)

    2. That is a brilliant idea! Not that I'm going to support you, being on the wrong side of the earth and all, but it would:1, make your little shop a local hobby hub. 2, give you a chance to introduce new people to the hobby and 3, allow you to buy your toys cheap!

    3. Yeah, the perks of stock holding were not lost on me ;-)

  27. Good Luck Scott!

    Are you going to make it to Panzerschreck this year? I'm thinking I'd like to organize an NZ gamers meet up and interviews for our new podcast: Behind Enemy Lines. I'd like to talk with you about LOTR if you can spare some of your busy time!
