And #soulcat is mine!

It’s been up and down for weeks with Arthur imminent return back to his owners and two weeks ago it looked certain I was about to lose him. However, thanks to my awesome skills in convincing people and him genuinely being happier at mine, they made the decision on Monday to leave him at mine […]

Knitting: Pretty little scarf

A few weeks ago I couldn’t resist the temptation and ended up buying some fairly expensive, at least for my standards, wool from John Lewis. It was in a clearance bin after all! The wool is spectacular and different from any wool I’ve ever knitted with. It’s layered and contains three very different repeating patterns […]

Saying one thing yet doing another!

I have noticed several times in the past that once I write a post about losing interest with something I suddenly find myself interested again. As it just happened with gaming. Last week I wrote a long post on how I’m not interested in gaming these days and how I’ve lost interest in gaming journalism […]

How to play “Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords” on Windows Vista

Just over a week ago I wrote a post discussing my lack of gaming in recent months. Amongst other games I mentioned KotOR II: The only reason I replayed KotOR was to have it all in the back of my mind [not that I actually needed to!] to replay KotOR II. Which has issues with […]

Photo library

Sorting out all the photos I have taken has been an ongoing project of mine for close to two years and I’ve blogged about it several times before. And, as of a few days ago, I’ve actually finished it! All of my photos are stored on my laptop in Dropbox folders which is one overall […]

CV writing

I spent a large part of today writing a new CV [that’s resume to you American folks] which is something I had been planning to do for quite some time, but always pushed it off as CV writing is such a tedious job. One could say I have experience in it though; as I started […]

Where have all the gaming posts gone?

Amongst several others there’s a draft sitting in my, well, drafts, lamenting on how I jump from interest or hobby to another to come back to it at a later time thus effectively proving my nomadic nature. In that post I mention gaming, but seeing I can’t find any inspiration to finish it I thought […]

Knitting: @Anie67’s delayed birthday present

I’m not the best when it comes to keeping up with dates or rather actually giving a present on the day it’s due.. Truth be told I was so busy in the run up to her birthday that I only started knitting her scarf a few days before. Even worse, I then unravelled it again […]


This week I spent a couple of days in Sheffield which was more of a neccessity rather than a trip for the sake of going on a trip. Still, no one can say I didn’t do a bit of sightseeing whilst there!

The week ahead

Unsurprisingly I’ve sort of caught the travelling bug and, coupled with the excuse of never having explored the UK much plus some amazing National Express offers, I can’t wait to travel to places. And so I am doing this week with a brief visit to Sheffield to visit a friend and whilst I’m both excited […]

And the return

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I was on a brief trip back home. And brief it was indeed as I spent less than 27 hours off the coach in Germany, yet still managed to get a lot done. For some reason none of my tweets through Friday got posted and they’re taken from […]

A trip back home

It has been a while since I’ve taking a trip, any kind of trip and I’m not counting the three trips I had to make to London to sort out my passport! People of Twitter & #rdg: When do I need to leave Reading to be at London Victoria via public transport at 7pm tonight? […]
