Simples

Today has been exactly the kind of Saturday that I needed after a long, long week at work.  I work as Project Support and this week has been the week from hell, ending with a cracked windscreen yesterday from a stone flicked up by a lorry.  Absolute icing on the cake to the kind of week I’ve had.

But today hubby and I headed up to London for a mooch.  I love London and I love mooching so the two combined was bliss for me.  We headed out to Finchley to Leisure Games where we were both able to get our geek on and hubby spent too much money on shines!  I spied a glorious set of World War Cthulhu books that I was tempted by.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m a Cthulhu whore.  Tabletop roleplay is more hubby’s thing but I’m deeply in love with Cthulhu.  If Cthulhu was a man I would have married him long ago!  I also enjoyed World of Darkness too, although I only played it for a few sessions but it really fired my imagination. I’d definitely like to explore it a little more…

Relaxing in a coffee shop then Pizza Express for lunch.  Now I’m chilling at the in-laws where we are staying for the night before breakfast with my family tomorrow.  Blissfully simple weekend and exactly what I need after the week I’ve had.

100 Days of Happiness – Day 7

I’ve lost my way a bit…

I’m not sure where I’m up to with happy days so I’m going to share yesterday’s happy moment and label it ‘Day 7’

Those of you who read me regularly will remember Donald…my multi-coloured Dalek!…

Here he is in all his kilned glory!

Doesn’t he look bright?

Doesn’t he look handsome??

He is going to have pride of place on my desk

My friend picked him up from the shop and brought him round last night when she came for coffee!

Donald, you are my happy moment, day 7!

He has magnetic hands and feet so why the hell not!!

At long, long last the house seems to be coming together.  We moved in on 10th January and we still have stuff to do.

 I didn’t realise that moving home and getting your new home exactly the way you want it is so much work…I’ve never really owned a home before so this has been a real learning curve for me.

 We spent last Saturday getting the living room sorted and exactly how we wanted it and here are the results, much more us I think!

 

 

 

 

Geek Envy

When hubby and I buy a new game for the PC he always buys the collectors edition.

Nothing wrong with that at all but it hurts me to often pay double for the same game so I don’t bother, after all we can always ‘share’ the art book and free stuff that comes in the box (not the in-game stuff unfortunately!).

However, I do have serious geek-envy at the Guild Wars 2 collectors edition box.  It’s really well done and the figure looks amazing.

‘Wow!  She’s behind the times’ I hear you cry, ‘Guild Wars 2 has been out for aggggess!’. 

Very true but this weekend was the first time that we unpacked the collectors edition box. 

Sacrilege?  Maybe.  I can understand that some people like to keep things in mint condition but it’s also nice to take them out and enjoy them.  This figure is a thing of beauty and definitely worth enjoying!
