Celebrate The Small Things: 4 March
So I haven’t had the chance to write anything here over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been recovering from jet lag this week, after flying back from Montreal. It was amazing being able to go back to Canada again, as it is one of my favourite places to visit. We also got to see three of our favourite bands while we were there: Nightwish, Sonata Arctica and Delain. Got to shake the hands with all the members of Nightwish and had a photo taken with them. When I first became a fan I never even thought I’d get a chance to see them perform, nevermind actually meeting them. While we were there I also visited my first planetarium, saw some wolves and ate the tastiest pizza ever.
Once we got back home we had another gig to go to. It was Sabaton and Alestorm; An unusual combination, but a fun night out all the same. I forgot how much I enjoy Alestorm, they’re really funny and can get the crowd going. Last week we also discovered that the card game shop has moved to a new location. Before it was quite a poky little shop in an area we didn’t feel safe walking through. Now it’s much closer with a whole upstairs area that anybody is free to use as a space to play card or role playing games in. Tried it out with some friends and I reckon we’ll be making regular visits from now on. It’s nice to have some space to go and meet people that won’t cost too much, like going to the pub for instance. We discovered a new card game called Boss Monster that is a lot of fun. Tonight we’re off to see Deadpool in 4D.
Oh and I finally finished all of the Game Of Thrones books and am now watching through the series. While I really enjoyed reading about all of the characters I found it to be a bit heavy going and have felt ready to move onto something new for quite some time.
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.
