So three more stars grace the hereafter over this short Christmas break. Zsa Zsa Gabor who’s been around since always, George Michael whom everybody knows and who’s music is engraved on everybody’s brain at some point. Liz Smith…who’s appearances in The Royle Family, The Vicar Of Dibley and Bottom has kept us giggling over the last 25 years. And now Carrie Fisher, just 60 years old and most famous for Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise.
The Grim Reaper keeps harvesting all my childhood heroes and theyre only going to increase in rate as we grow older, but then this is the circle of life. It can come at any age for any reason. We should enjoy our lives and loved ones with precious grace so that we are remembered fondly when we have no more presence.
Be awesome to each other for a better future. Sometimes all it can take is you to make the first move even if you don’t feel you should…and then the world becomes a better place. Simply stay away from those who antagonize you for a clearer and more enjoyable life. Civility can be all.

Thats the domain renewed for another year. Seasons greetings to you all. Been quite a bad week for me on an emotional level. Left me with feeling rather like I did back in July. Might be a GP job. Looking back on 2016, there have been some happy times, but also some very dark ones. Thats before we include the Angel Of Death’s harvest of celebrity heroes. Im hoping 2017 will bring new light, happiness, confidence and faith into my life, especially with help from my fiance (winky signs 😉 😉 x). I hope my readers also get the year they want as well.
Good news to all those people who couldnt make Fighting Fantasy Fest back in 2014…and those who did! Well the truth is, Fighting Fantasy Fest 2 has been confirmed with this picture riding round the web promoting the event.
After the awesome atmosphere and success of the first FFF, im poised, ready and waiting for the ticket launch and hoping to meet all my fellow fanatics and heroes of this ever popular book series. Eventbright was chosen as the last ticket vendor so keep an eye out and join the ‘Fighting Fantasy and Other Gamebooks’ Facebook group to keep ontop of the arrangements.
Well 2016. No other year has played on my tears so much as far as I can remember and thats saying something. Aside from personal losses the Grim Reaper has harvested a plethora of loved celebrities and childhood heroes. It also saw a chance at parenthood which was tragically ended soon after it had began. At one point I thought id lost Vic as well.
However it wasnt without its good points. My 40th birthday was great, and going to see Knightmare Live in London with the lads was terrific. Had some successful book hunts with Victoria and been to some lovely places geocaching. We have our little kitty Drutt, and ive immortalised my name in several more publications. Maybe I should write my own? 2017 will see much change so I shall ask this at a later date.
