A Day Of Consuming Media – The Climb #386

Sunday 11th November 2018 Today I’ve been really bored. I still think it’ll be a number of weeks before I start writing something new, and whilst I have a short story I need to work on, I was too restless for what is a delicate bit of prose.  And given I spent some time yesterday [...]

Rearranging The Office – The Climb #379

Sunday 4th February 2018 Today I decided to tidy up my office space and create a second desk.  I’m playing games online with friends who live locally and it would be nice to be able to invite them around and have a social evening playing online together. I have a couple of old PCs, and [...]

Lazy Saturday – The Climb #378

Saturday 3rd February 2018 I feel like I’ve been really lazy this week.  Whilst there are some weeks where I don’t feel like I get a lot of things done, it’s not usually due to a lack of trying. Yet, this week.  I don’t think I’ll look back at this week and see it being [...]

February Could Be A Busy Month – The Climb #376

Thursday 1st February 2018 I went back to work too early.  I’ve never been one for being off ill and so I’ll drag myself back to work as soon as possible.  But my hand really wasn’t feeling up to a day of use. Over the last day or so I’ve typed a little, I’ve played [...]

Taking It Easy – The Climb #375

Wednesday 31st January 2018 I had intended to go back to work today but my finger was killing me this morning.  I think I must have moved around in the night and knocked it.  I don’t seem to need to do much for it to really hurt.  Just brushing it against something is enough to [...]

The Walking Wounded – The Climb #374

Tuesday 30th January 2018 Today I hurt like someone who’d nearly chopped their finger off.  Now the shock has worn off. The hand really, really hurts. It’s not just the finger though… just trying to stretch my hand results in pain.  So typing hurts it (even if not using the finger), ALT-CTRL-DEL is next to [...]

Restless – The Climb #363

Friday 19th January 2018 I’m a bad patient.  By all rights what I should be doing is enjoying the rest.  I’ve had a tough couple of weeks mentally and have no projects outstanding.  The sensible thing to do would be to rest, to gather my mental energy and just consume media ready for the next [...]

Brimstone Delivery – The Climb #355

Thursday 11th January 2018 Many, many moon ago  (about 15 months ago to be precise), I backed a kickstarter for a boardgame called Shadows of Brimstone. The game is basically a weird western where adventurers dive into the mines and find all sorts of Cthulhuan terrors.  There are also portals which take you to other [...]

Adventures In Brimstone – The Climb #348

Thursday 4th January 2018 As I’ve previously said, I end up buying a load of boardgames on kickstarter.   They are amazing value for money but I do end up going all in, which means I really should be playing them some more. Currently, the only time I get to play is when my friends come [...]

Games Day 2017 – The Climb #341

Thursday 28th December 2017 Today was my annual games day, spent in the company of some of my oldest friends. I’ve known Nick and Simon since we volunteered in a youth charity together some 25 years ago.  It doesn’t seem that long ago… but we’ve been through a lot - good and bad - together.  [...]
