Celebrating Reclamation Day: Fallout 76 Party

It’s been three years since our last Fallout party, and with the release of Fallout 76, it felt right to use Reclamation Day as an excuse to host another. As I have mentioned on previous occasions, I am not a gamer myself, but there is something about the Fallout world that really appeals to me.  […]

Have a very Harry Christmas!

This Christmas we were hosting both our parents and we wanted to plan something magical for their stay with us. 2018 has been a bit of a Potter-fest year for us. Following our visit to the West End to experience the magical Cursed Child play in May, I was propelled to re-listen to the Harry […]

Star Wars Fiesta

As you all know, I am a HUGE Star Wars fan.   Any excuse to celebrate this wonderful franchise, and I’m game for it! I bought my first set of Think Geek Star Wars Geeki Tikis a couple of years back, and last year I acquired series 2, as well as the limited edition Jabba […]

Great Scott!! It’s Back to the Future Day, and it didn’t take 1.21GW to get us here!

It’s been 26 years since we were all first introduced to the bright and wonderful future of 2015. In Back to the Future’s second instalment, Marty and Doc jettison off in a flying DeLorean from the year 1985 to deal with a crisis involving Marty and Jennifer’s problem child 30 years in the future.  And […]
