DYHAF is one year old today!

Well, it's the first proper day of 2013 (I think so anyway) and also the first birthday / anniversary of Do You Have A Flag?.Please be warned, there's going to a lot of cliched soppiness - but it's all certainly sincerely meant.

I've said it before, but I want to thank everyone who reads and comments on a regular basis (or as regularly as I post), without your good selves this blog wouldn't be nearly enjoyable (and it would just be me muttering to myself in an empty room, and I do that enough already). You all definitely make the blog what it is (see how I shifted responsibility there...)

I'd like to echo Scipio's excellent post today, where he said the best progress of the year was on the friend-making front. I have to agree completely. At the start of the year when I mostly frequented forums (recently the target of my "Meldrewing" in this post here), I had no idea that I'd finish the year knowing a superb bunch of people whose feedback and suggestions are always respected and appreciated (soppy overload warning...). I've been able to get involved with some great projects, AND recently had the likes of Chris from SOPW interested in my waffle enough to make a beautiful mini from my own fluff witterings.


And speaking of Scipio, he definitely deserves a big thanks (depending on your persepctive) not only for getting me to start the blog in the first place, but for giving me a kick up the arse when it could have been easy to put the blog down when things have gotten busy. It's definitely added a new dimension to our gaming, and has led to us both doing projects we probably wouldn't have done otherwise. I think we've becme something of a blogging double act (probably more of the Chuckle Brothers level rather than Laurel and Hardy...).

Tuppy Glossop was rather miffed when Gussie Fink-Nottle suggested Mat Ward's fluff wasn't that bad
 It was clearly established in the comments of my "Forum Rant" that this is essentially the Drones Club (or a club of that ilk), so don a fez, pour yourself a glass of Port (ensuring it has been passed in the correct direction...), and find a comfy chair to enjoy 2013...

  1. Top hole! Oddly enough I spent some time yesterday painting with Jeeves and Wooster playing in the background.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog throughout 2012 and I'm looking forward to seeing more in 2013! Keep up the great work!

  4. Why can't someone set up a gaming club in the style of the picture? I'd certainly attend...

  5. I'm far too poorly dressed and loutish to be a member of such a club of distinguished gents and gent-esses.

    but I am glad I found yer blog and enjoy every post you slap about.

    Keep it up Kieran, it's blogs like your own that make it fun and important to keep checking for updates. :)

    1. Nonsense sir, a certain degree of loutishness is definitely encouraged :P

      Thanks very much Dai, the same can definitely be said of yourself.

  6. Happy Birthday DYHAF! Certainly looking forward to another excellent year of articles and nifty bits. Though I may become overly comfortable if we do set up those plush chairs like the ones in the photo.

  9. I think we need to hatch a plot involving aunts and pushing children off bridges into streams. Happy Blogday, here's looking forward to another year of good stuff. And I think the double-act analogy works well. To me! To you! To me!
