Well, it's my first proper outing with the new laptop. When I decided to change over from the more traditional gaming tower to a laptop the plan was for better portability, so as a suitable test I brought it along to Throne of Skulls (hereafter referred to as ToS...it's Games Workshops big event they run at their headquarters).
As is tradition (or will quickly become one), in the off-season I tend to start painting en masse, as the weather and lack of daylight keeps me from training.
I spent far too long this weekend not really understanding Civ 5. While it downloaded I attempted to read the manual (all 230+ pages of it), and got a basic idea of combat, play mechanics etc etc. Did the basic tutorial, and won it in about 10 minutes.
On a whim I've decided to enter Spiky Clubs yearly Blood Bowl tournament...6 games over 2 days.
It's been about a month since I got back from Lands End...a fairly banal train journey from Penzance, and Gill met me at Reading station (still dragging that damn bag!)
2nd part of the recap of my protracted cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End. The rivetting (and fairly cycling-based) installment can be found Here!
Day 4 - East Renfrewshire to Ullswater
Distance - 210km
It's about a month since I finished Ride Across Britain, which I will henceforth refer to as RAB. I've attempted to type up a sort of review of the event before, however I think I exceeded Blogger's character count for saved drafts, and it was comprehensively eaten...
