Philately will get you everywhere...

Normally at this time of year I would probably be starting to panic at all the things I need to do for the Ffiesta and haven't even started.  This year I'm just feeling a bit smug because the Ffiesta is ages away and I've already got quite a lot of things underway.  Mind you I did have a nightmare the other day that we were at there, in Swindon, all ready to start proceedings and I realised I hadn't prepared anything.  I got into a bit of a panic and some of you regular attendees began to turn into zombies.  I think it's the book I've been reading.  Or memories of Hamlet, Prince of Zombies.  Vicky Vagg was there, dressed as as a big baby, a big zombie baby, but not as cute as the original!

Anyway I have been designing stamps for each Kingdom.  Sadly my artistic skills are neither artistic nor skilful, so they look rather amateurish, but they are a labour of love nonetheless so I don't care.  I have designs for the Workers Republic of South Wales, the Duchy of Portland Bill, and the Kingdom of Kent all planned and those for the Isles of Man and Wight are complete so that just leaves Mercia and Anglia to sort out.  Better get cracking!

More news soon....
