Last night while Will and I were having a date night, he had Steam open before we launched Spiritfarer, there was an advert for The Sims 4 with the Cats & Dogs expansion for 80% off. Will pointed out that it would actually make good financial sense for me to get the game now, even … Continue reading Whoops
Well, the first half of it, anyway. The second dose will come sometime in the next 12 weeks, and even then I won't be invincible but if the worst happens, it will hopefully hit me a lot less than it otherwise would have done. I also just got a letter from the DHSC saying I'm … Continue reading I’ve had my COVID jab!
I am 31! I was both in lockdown and isolating after a Covid test on my birthday, so I did a lot of streaming. Not only Illbleed, which it was amazing to reconnect with after so long, but also Phasmophobia with Mike! I've been wanting to try it for a while after being spooked by … Continue reading The meat has teeth!
I am having a right 'mare with technology right now. My laptop is slowly breaking before my eyes; for the most part it seems to be that some of the hinge has come out on one side, this is in turn pulling on the corner of the screen and today it finally cracked.

"Vet says it's not worth worrying about but that's mainly because they can't tell us anything about it unless we get an episode on video. I cried all night … Continue reading We need air conditioners
I suppose we've been quite busy recently. Biggest news is no doubt that I did my first Twitch stream! Painfully missed my usual summer TR marathons with people so decided to finally start streaming and at least be able to talk to them that way. Might try and get Discord working next time so we … Continue reading The 30 degree night
I'm waiting for my towel to dry from the wash so I can have a shower, but it keeps raining so that might not happen any time soon. Freya had her 11th birthday a couple of days ago! Sadly there can be no FreyaFest '20 because nobody is allowed to come over. We intend … Continue reading Watching a towel dry
https://open.spotify.com/track/3FY4wCXHbQe5S5jAFNbAXr?si=dJTP7bFATqCgQcnDnywM3w Are you hearing this all the time? Because I am. I got slagged-off on the grapevine the other week for advising people on Facebook to wash their hands and stay calm. Apparently this is "telling people what to do." I mean, regardless of what I type anywhere, you are still free to be … Continue reading Viruses are scary and that’s OK
