Halloween party postponed

So we had a small dinner party instead. We also got a quick game of Splendor and Little Drop of Poison too.

Very pleasantly surprised

Very pleasantly surprised with this year's pumpkin carving. I didn't think I had the patience or coordination.

Poppet and Biscuit keeping me company

The girls are keeping me company whilst April's been away.

Expansion for Exploding Kittens

The update has arrived for Exploding Kittens! I wonder who will be first to wear the Cone of Shame...

This'll keep me busy

My life is complete. The beta version of the new Football Manager is out. Bye, bye world.

April made these yesterday

They look and taste great. Now to inject some jam in there.

Yum, yum, yum

Lancashire Hotpot in my belly


Biscuit helping herself to my tea. I'm surprised her head fits.

Biscuit helping with the count

£181 baggable.  Not bad.

Friday nights gig

Le Butcherettes at the Black Heart, Camden.  Great small venue although far too packed for the gig. Great metal pub downstairs though.

Biscuit peed on favourite envelope

So I had to go to the post office to get her some more.

April had one job to do whilst I was away

Feed the cats.  This is what I come home to. They still got their wet food but Biscuit likes to snack during the day on kibble.

Random karaoke after pizzas at the Bakehouse

After decent pizzas in the bakehouse last Friday the most harsh of us continued the night out with a spot of karaoke.

Some photos from the gaming week

Last week I met up with the dweebs at one of the forest retreats for a gaming holiday.  It was a good laugh getting us all together. And to top it all off, I took home the trophy!

Pancetta wrapped potatoes and baked cheese

I made this with April last Sunday. Lovely.

28 floors!

No sign of stopping any time soon.

Some photos from last night

We went to see the Nyx yesterday at The Monarch in Camden.  Brilliant! They were previously called Rouge. Excellent band.

Other highlights. Me beating April 2-1 at pool and me getting my photo taken as Queen Elizabeth.

April took me to the Aon canteen in the Cheese Grater on Monday.  It's right opposite my building so very easy to get to. Here's the view coming down the escalators,  it reminds me of a scene in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers where Saruman is instructing the orcs and goblins to cut down all of the trees.

Some photos from the Milligan gig

Northern Soul night by Milligan

First time in ages at the Crobar

I got out of work early on Friday as Lloyd's was powering down for the weekend to do some maintenance so popped in for a quick couple before the gig.
