I had planned to get back to a regular posting regime but so far things haven’t worked out as I’d hoped. I mentioned recently that we’d taken on a new person at work and that, after a bit of training, we should get into a regular earlies/lates shift pattern. Well, I managed one week of ..read more

Yes, eight months! That’s how long it has been since my last post. Since I started my new job, in fact. So, what’s been happening since I last put fingers to keyboard? Well, not a fat lot to be honest, at least in terms of hobby stuff. I think I managed to finish a few ..read more

First post for a while, and I’d like to say I have plenty to talk about because the last two months have been full of hobby stuff… …I’d like to say that, but alas, it would not be true! There has been a smattering here and there. The odd game played and even one or ..read more

Whenever I have a spare moment, and often when I haven’t, I find myself having a quick dabble with this game, Magic The Gathering – Arena. I’ve become something of an addict! Arena, for those not in the know, is the official digital version of the hugely popular Magic The Gathering card game, designed by ..read more

Okay, a short Music Monday post today, as, well, it isn’t your usual type of album to be able to comment on, not in a, ‘This track is great because of the lyrics, this one hit the top of the charts,’ kind of way. No, this album is great in another way… The film, Das ..read more

It hasn’t been the most productive couple of months, I must say. Yasmin has been prepping for mock exams, which will count to her UCAS point grades for her university applications, so she’s been hard at work there. I’ve lent her a helping hand and have been typing her notes up for her, which were ..read more

Music Monday – Use Your Illusion II

It was difficult choice this week, between Use Your Illusion I & II, as you can see, the latter won the argument! Both albums are excellent, but this just tips the scale for the opening two songs, which are possibly my favourite Guns ‘N’ Roses tracks. ‘Civil War’ has it all in terms of what ..read more

I haven’t played a whole lot of games over the last year for one reason or another, but I’m happy to say that this one has hit the table. To be honest, though, it’s a game crying out for expansions, which I’ve yet to add. It seems that the one we (Okay, think mostly Yasmin ..read more

The concept album. ‘THE’ concept album, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, probably the best known of them all, and boy, does it deliver! The Band’s eleventh studio album tells the life of ‘Pink,’ a depressed rock star who’s mental health deteriorates to the point of him building a wall in his mind, the bricks metaphors of ..read more

I’ve had about six or seven games of Summoner Wars and so I thought it was time to share my first thoughts of what could be described as, Magic with a board! Okay, let’s not get carried away, it’s nowhere near as complicated as Magic, what with its unprecedented choice of cards and equally numerous ..read more
