As usual, in December I was going out of my way to try new things. It’s a habit I strongly recommend and I always enjoy looking back at the end of the month to see what I’ve been able to try. Also as usual, December was a busy month. I don’t know about you, but… Continue reading New things I tried in December 2017
I’ve been using these short to-read lists lately, where I pick around 10 books I’d like to read next, and I’ve been finding them really helpful because my long to-read list is… unwieldy and when I have ~100 books to choose from I find it much harder to make a decision than when I only… Continue reading New to the queue (end of 2017)
Our lovely DM is finally back from the US so we regrouped to continue our DnD campaign. This was only slightly complicated by the fact that K had moved house during our hiatus and lost all of her character sheets. We re-rolled a new level 3 for her, and got started. As usual, we met… Continue reading Back to DnD!
Whelp, that’s it. Dear DM has a plan to travel to the US, toddler in tow, for a whole month, and we’ll be without her fantastical instruction. Since we wanted to get at least one more session in before she left we re-grouped at cafe Marlayne for a Sunday afternoon. We’d left off having defeated… Continue reading The last DnD meet up for a whole month!
Well, last time we met for a DnD session we ended with my character begging to be allowed to adopt a roper we met when wandering a dungeon crawling with cultists trying to raise baby dragons. As I mentioned before, this is not typical. Our dear DM did her best to make it happen for… Continue reading The DnD campaign continues…
Every month I do a quick round up of at least five of the new things I’ve been trying. I find it’s a fun way of looking back on what I’ve been getting up to and a good way to keep track of things. I’ll put links to previous months’ posts at the end of today’s… Continue reading New things I tried in March
Way back in December I was browsing through my Steam library, trying to find a game I could play over the Christmas period when I was home in Leeds. I wanted a point-and-click adventure to play with P. Something with lots of puzzles we could both work on. I settled on The Testament of Sherlock… Continue reading Game review: The Testament of Sherlock Holmes
Since my first foray into dungeon crawling table top games a few months ago we’ve met twice. The first meeting almost killed our party; half of our gamers were unable to attend and as a result, while I sat very happily enjoying the delicious food and drink on offer in Edinburgh’s Cafe Marlayne, my poor… Continue reading Continuing the DnD campaign
I recently turned 28. This is much older than my 6-year-old self could ever have imagined but it has happened anyway. Just like my 6-year-old self would have hoped, however, I got spoiled rotten. Quite aside from dinners out and cake and things, I managed to collect one or two lovely little treats. No doubt… Continue reading Birthday treats
Note: Hi everyone. Sorry for possible weirdness at the weekend. Sometimes WordPress does strange things when I try to schedule posts ahead of time. If you got an email with a link you can’t follow anymore, don’t worry, it’ll show up soon. In the meantime, I guess I’ll send WordPress another irritable email myself. Ok,… Continue reading Movie review: Assassin’s Creed
