Celebrate The Small Things: 21 August
Had a wonderful time at comic-con over the weekend. Spent a good bit of time hanging out with friends – got the chance to meet a couple of new friendly people too. I treated myself to a few things: the ps1 game King’s Field (a From Software game) and a signed set of the book series Ruin by Samsun Lobe (epic fantasy.) I also got to see Christopher Judge again (Teal’c from Stargate.)
My boyfriend knows somebody at work who has an idea for a really simple tapping game, but doesn’t have the time to build it. It’s going to take a little bit of time away from my other project, but I’ve agreed to have a go as it should be easy and fairly quick to put together. Apparently a few people are interested in seeing this and it can be fairly exciting working on something that you know others will be happy to see.
I made a couple of Battenberg cakes this week. The first was a plain one for practice and this time I was very happy with how it turned out. The second was a birthday cake for my friend. Turns out Battenberg is his favourite. I put together a cinnamon and apple one that turned out to be a delicious combination of flavours. I put a marzipan Corgi on top too (one of his favourite animals.) I basically had a lot of fun with it and he seemed to really appreciate it,
I’ve been getting a decent bit of me time this week and will continue to have some next week. Sometimes I need the space to be able to focus on what’s important to me and to recuperate. The weather has been lovely and warm too.
