Wednesday Wisdom - 20.09.2017 - Gaming Week

Song of The Day - Wednesday - EGX 2017 Eve!


A Very Happy Wednesday to you all! 
I am almost awake on is bright and sunny but chilly morning, a little sunshine is always a great start to the day. 

Last night was Bake Off and it was Caramel week on the show. This was quite an interesting one because caramel can either be easy or hard depending on how well practiced you are at it. As is tradition I searched the shops for shopping caramel themed to snack on while watching the show and came across the caramel waffle biscuits that they were making on the show. I cannot remember what their proper name was. 

It's the day before EGX 2017 starts and the day before Blake and I drive up to Birmingham for a short break. We will be attending Thursday of EGX and I'm ever so excited!  My sister will be feeding and cuddling the cats while we are gone, I'm sure Jiji will miss Blake because he's her favourite human.

Song of The Day - Tuesday - Getting Closer to EGX!


Happy Tuesday!!
It's another chilly week day morning, there is mist over the river Medway. I was running rather late this morning and it seemed so was the train. Hopefully I'll get to work on time today. 

We have been watching the PlayStation Access and Outside Xbox videos on YouTube with dinner a lot recently, both groups are very funny and I am hoping to go see them at EGX this week. 

It's Bake Off day today and it is also caramel week so I feel like this episode is going to be interesting and incredibly sticky. What caramel filled things can I get to snack on while watching Bake Off?!

Monday Motivation - 18.09.2017 - Gaming Week

Song of The Day - Monday - It's Gaming Week!


Morning All!
It's terribly grey this morning, Monday is going to be a bit of a dull day I think. 

My weekend was quite an excellent one! After three days off sick and a return to work on Friday my Friday night consisted of  YouTube videos and bed. 

Saturday morning we had shopping to do for various things. Then it was on to a 40th wedding anniversary that afternoon for my in-laws. There was an incredible amount of Prosecco and I think a large amount of it was drunk. Sunday was a lazy day filled with films, sleeping and eating. We watched 'The Force Awakens' and 'Zootopia', take a watch of both if you haven't seen them. I made a big cheesy pasta bake for dinner and we had hot chocolate before bed. The first hot chocolate of the autumn. 

This week on the blog it is video game themed. The Song of The Day picks will be video game themes in various forms, today's is Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens's cover of the Skyrim Theme. 

 Blake and I will be going up to Birmingham this Thursday until Sunday, we are going to  EGX 2017 on Friday so if you are there please come find us and say hi.

Song of The Day - Monday - It's Monday Again


Morning All! 
It's getting more autumnal as we move further into September. 

I have had a busy weekend but I've also had some time to chill out which is nice. We've had a bit of work done on the wall between the kitchen and the bathroom, and the external  bathroom walls. We've had a damp problem and hopefully (fingers crossed) this will be the beginning of the end for the damp.

We've been reorganising the kitchen now that we have moved everything out of the kitchen. We have a new smaller microwave that doesn't take up so much space and as this gave us a very big excuse to have a sort out, we've gone through some cupboards and cleared them out. I will be sorting another few cupboards out this week as and when I get home and get time. 

We went for a small visit to Gillingham park as the Will Adams Festival was going on during the day, we went in the afternoon and in the early evening a small birthday get together on Saturday. 

It seems because I'm not supposed to have sick days at the moment my body has gone ahead and tried to shove all the colds and what not into me just to see my immune system cry. I am super tired this morning but have to just get on with it. It wasn't made any better because I was late to work via signal failures on the way to work. 
Wish me luck today!

Song of The Day - Thursday - Almost There!



Happy Thursday!
We are on the down hill section of the week and I'm really looking forward to the weekend. 

Nothing say being an adult like cleaning black spots off the bathroom ceiling with something that smells intoxicatingly like chlorine at 9:30 at night. The damp work people are over today to damp proof the kitchen and bathroom, Blake had taken the day off to oversee that while I get to go to work. Boooooo! 

The  cold I've been trying to stop seems to have taken hold and I'm feeling crappy this morning. I have Buffy to watch so that's what I'm going to do. Have a great day!
