I got up about 8 and settled down on the sofa for a change.. and opened up a big stats file and jumped right in. It’s got me in it’s grip, so when the Muse is with me it’s great, but I do miss seeing people and networking and all that. It’s been really sunny here but much colder than a few weeks ago, but the sun’s great through our big windows.
At 4pm (how appropriate) my birthday started proper with some great pressies. Janet got me some of the Roger Hargreaves Dr. Who books, the First, Fourth and 11th Doctors. Very jolly and I will be able to share them with young Oliver!
Ann had got me, as well as some new aftershave, a bloody great headset for my Xbox One S, a Turtle Beach no less:
I tried it out playing Forza Horizon and it has great sound, is very comfortable and the sound is awesomely good. Ann need not be bothered with the noise and we can be together, she can knit and I’ll play games.
Matthew got me the 10.5 year Anniversary edition of Brian Froud’s Goblins book. I had a much earlier edition years ago but lost it, or maybe it never was mine, so it was a great present. Oddly, I feel the goblins may have got at it before it got to me!
In addition Ann got me a very cool sign for the games room:
But the peace de la resistance (as Del Boy might say), is the very big, very heavy and very cool giant D6..
Then we went to Santanas, one of our fave restaurants and had some great food and I got the giant birthday Tiramisu!
It has been a great birthday, thanks everyone and especially Ann who was even willing to give up cheese for me.. but let’s not go mad, eh?
