Celebrate The Small Things: 24 July

I’ve really been getting into my game development this week. I’m not as far progressed as I would have liked, but I love it when I can feel this enthusiastic about a project. It tends to fuel me forward so that I can’t wait to go back to it. I also daringly decided to make my first Battenberg cake, and while a bit wonky looking it wasn’t as challenging as I thought it’d be. Everyone told me it was really nice, so I think I’ll have to treat myself to a proper Battenberg tin and make some more.

It was my partner’s grandma’s birthday over the weekend so we all went out for a lovely meal at one of our favourite restaurants. We also had a catch up while enjoying the sun in the garden. I made friends with a ginger cat who came up to nuzzle my hand. My boyfriend seems to think I give off this vibe because cats always seem to approach me first, even if they seem a bit skittish. I think they know I’m gullible to a cute furry face. 😛

My friends and I also arranged a Civilization V game together with five of us in total. We usually have a lot of difficulty setting games up when we’re all available. We didn’t get the chance to finish it, but I was way ahead on research and having a lot of fun. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it so much that we decided to get a new laptop that can play the game so that we can hopefully enjoy these moments more often. We’re planning to have takeaway pizza and a long gaming session tonight, a prospect that I’m thoroughly looking forward to. 😀

    that’s so cute that you and you’re bf seem to have a lot in common. My partner loves games, but urgh, I’d rather read a non-fic book (can’t even bring that up to him!!)
    Yay for pizza!

      We’re very similar in the things we like, which helps when it comes to something as time consuming as games. I like reading non-fic too. It’s a shame you can’t enjoy each others interests together, but then it’s also good to have those things that you can enjoy for yourself too.

    It’s great to hear your enthusiasm! I hope that new laptop does all it’s supposed to and you enjoy great gaming tonight and in the future! (A bazillion years ago, I used to get together with friends and have marathon D&D games. I loved that!)
