Hi Friends,

Again apologies for not coming in as much as I have but I am struggling with health right now. The NHS is an eye opener for sure as to the state this country. I have spent so much time in hospital visits I may as well live there. Basically I have some sort of eating disorder and unaware to me, I have been suffering with this for years. However as I last wrote in here I am truly unwell. The good thing is I am losing weight, makes you laugh in itself but I am eating little and from my last post in here its taken 2 months to get a CT scan and it now looks 3 months in total to get the results, according to my Dr's anyway, March sometime.

I was going to emigrate USA and my trip last November was cancelled due to failing health and by the grace of luck I never went although you may say if i went I would be getting far better medical help than I am here, that is without doubt.

Anyway enough of that and to stamps we go. This is my latest win from the competitions on Stamp Magazine Classic Toys pack 10 x 1st..

It really is not an inspiring set of stamps and I notice the SM has stopped its monthly article on stamp worth, I used to enjoy giving my own opinion. This set I know a few oft he actual makers and products probably because I am far to young (lol). The one thing that stand out about these the RM have used the British makers such as Sindy which was a flop but the Cindy sister fetches good money on Ebay.. Stickle Bricks, (Lego) another flop.

There are a few I just don't know or have a vague memory and 5 from my childhood. I personally would not have purchased this set of stamps the insert card is more interesting than the stamps and I could really go to town on the stamps images used it is a very poor set of stamps.

Nice to hear something from you, Julian. Sorry to hear about your health, but here's to the future.

Nice prize that you won. It is a nice set for sure. Though I didn't grow up in the UK I had similar toys when I was a kid, for example I didn't have a Action Man but instead a GI Joe (same thing, really, just better quality and better range of stuff to go with it).

Keep your chin up and get better.......
