On Life

Y’know sometimes how life gets you down? It can either be nothing specific you can pin your finger on, or alternatively it can be defined moments – either one or multiples accumulating, that cause the feeling. The past couple of days are two of those days.

An hour or so in GTA V (PC)

So last night I went out for an evening meal with some colleagues from work, but it was over pretty quickly and I got home in time to play some more GTA V on the PC.

I really must find out what the key is for screenshots.

Balsamic Cherry Tomato Recipe - Simples!

Last Thursday was my eldest sons birthday and so I asked him if he wanted anything special for me to cook on Saturday. He said he wanted me to "make that pie you make". As I have been known to make a number of different ones it took a few minutes to determine which particular pie he was asking for - I call it my Picnic Pie because in my (apparently solo) view its way nicer cold. I then had to decide what I was going to do with it and opted for Tuscan roast potatoes in white wine, honey glazed carrots and fried shredded cabbage with bacon, then probably some gravy.

Perhaps the last “what’s been happening”?...NO!!!

So as Tanitha may soon shut down TBT and we may all lose contact with each other, I thought it might be nice to do an update of things since…well whenever. Therefore it’s a bit long.

HOT NEWS - We stay open 27/7, but I'll leave my post as it is as it took me 2 days to write it :)
I'll try to post more, and more frequently.

The Game of Life

So tomorrow morning I go into hospital...again. This is the second attempt at an operation I call a "Gallstonectomy" in my laymans language. It has a proper medical name but I can't remember it. Essentially they want to whip out my gallbladder because I have gallstones, and gallstones can lead to Pancreatitis. After surviving Severe Acute Pancreatitis in 2001, getting it again would be classed as "not a good result"

Back in Hyboria [no pics yet]

Yes folks, I am back playing Age of Conan again. When did I last play this…2008? Surely not.

In Memory of Pip's Memories of Summer

So Pip’s video on memories of summer brought back to me memories of a trip I took part in while at school. I suppose you’d call it Summer Camp – schools here in the UK basically have a trip around the last year of junior school to some “outward bound camp” destination mostly in Wales or the Lake District. I guess I’d have been about 11 or 12 years old and although I used to go camping every year in a biggish tent with my mum, dad, brother, this was actually the first time I had ever been away – to stay away for a week – without them.

Warhammer Online to shut down

I logged in to my work PC a few minutes ago and saw the latest MMORPG email had arrived in my inbox. The first thing to hit me was this:

Warhammer Online : Notice of Shutdown Posted
Posted Sep 18, 2013 by Suzie Ford

The Warhammer Online development team has posted a notice on the official site that states that the game will cease operations on December 18th. The official notice is quite terse but a personal reflection post by Producer Carrie Gouskos is also available on the site.

Greetings Warhammer Online Subscribers,

A Guild Wars 2 Mini Update

So Guild Wars 2 eh? I get the feeling I’m the only regular here who is playing it like it’s the only game on Earth? Yup currently I’m hooked virtually every night but it isn’t my fault….honest!
It’s all down to this “Living World” concept Arena Net have where every 2 weeks there is something majorly new in the game, usually a large event that runs for 2 solid weeks, and believe me it needs to as there can be a heck of a lot to do if you get into it, and for my sins, I do.
