I think I’ll be getting the new Zelda game for Nintendo Switch, I love the idea of playing using the joycons!

Also, I’m still waiting for the Wii I bought to arrive, and I dislike the idea of the controllers losing the connection mid-battle πŸ˜‚

She wasn’t in her bed this morning, and I was worrying she’d somehow got under the cooker!

Fortunately, that was not the case. But she does seem to be settling in!

Smudge is starting to explore!!

I’m currently fostering an adorable black and white cat called Smudge. She’s quite scared of humans but seems to like the little bed I got her with a roof!

When she starts to come out and play expect my feeds to be flooded with cat pictures πŸ˜†

I just realised I’m wearing my jumper back to front. I put it on at 8…

So that’s how my day’s going! How about you?

“It’s here!”
Same day delivery: “It’s coming!”

I’m not sure what kind of time machine is being used, but I’m intrigued.

Naturally the accessories and games start arriving before the console is here!

Nintendo Wii Balance Board and Wii Fit game

I really need this worldwide vaccine rollout to work, and for travel to be possible again without potentially getting or giving the plague. I miss going places so much.

I’m considering buying a Nintendo Wii and balance board. I loved the Fit stuff when I was in my teens but didn’t own my own, and it looks like the second hand ones are pretty cheap!!

In other news, Trine 4 has provided hours of entertainment every day for the last few weeks!

Me: “Ooh! Red pepper! I like peppers!”
Narrator: It was not a pepper. 🌢

Alright, if you had a HDD and wanted to fill it with media (movies and TV shows) you would enjoy anytime, what would you put on it? This drive will live in my bag, so it’s for emergency trips to the hospital/to look after someone, and hopefully for travel on short notice!

My router seems to think it’s a yo-yo, one doing a lot of those tricks to stay down. But then it goes up, briefly! And down. And up! And down.

It’s not like I need the internet for anything! Except, wait, everything.

Friday night is for real food! With veggies and everything.

Today is that kind of day. Crumpets for breakfast, immediately followed by 2nd breakfast, a shortbread belgian chocolate cookie. Happy Friday!

I’m starting to wonder if I can use the CO2 levels of a room to detect occupancy… This is my living room, it’s pretty easy to tell when I’m not in here!

Also, this fever might be making my brain a bit weird.

So, I’ve just started watching Castle. So much fun!

With all these different tracking technologies (Tile, Airtags), you’d think that there would be something to keep track of my glasses!

Alright, next week is my birthday! I’ll be in lockdown, so what suggestions do you have to make this fun? I’ll have my bubble buddy, and of course an inordinate amount of tech at my disposal.

Requirements: no other humans in person, no viruses/illnesses.

NYE Activity: building a dice tower!

Nanoleaf light panels with a rhythm module and some good music means I have a private night club for tonight, celebration and safety! πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸŽŠπŸ₯³

It snowed! I love it.

Yesterday I decided to cut my hair. Yes, on Christmas Day. In the morning. Fortunately, I’m quite happy with the result!

Today’s techy presents for my parents were a huge success: Sonos One and an Echo Dot, IKEA outlets and a button for their living room lamps. The lights came on automatically, music is playing, and pizza for dinner was cooked to perfection!

And on the last day before Christmas, the postman brought to me… one fluffy game! (Seriously, the box is fluffy!)

Bears vs Babies

Totally not nerding out about the fact my new tiny motion sensors work perfectly under the bed to activate the under bed LED strip at night. Yes, I love it. And it’s handy!!!
