Cooperative Play With Pandemic

As a member of the ‘Blogger Board Game Club’ each month I am sent a game to play, review and to share with my readers. This month we were sent the international award-winning game ‘Pandemic’.


Pandemic – A Cooperative Game

Designed by Matt Leacock and published by Z-Man Games, Pandemic is a cooperative game which all players work to win or lose together, this is a rather new concept for our household as over the years we have grown accustomed to board games being a battle against one and other.

Pandemic is suited for two to four players aged eight years and over, each player takes on a specific role (either a dispatcher, medic, scientist, researcher, operations expert, contingency planner or quarantine specialist) each of which contributes to game play through special abilities and skills.…

Don’t Stress Just Soak

Don’t get me wrong I miss my kids greatly when they are busy at School but over the past couple of months I’ve learnt to adapt and to make use of the time that I now have to myself. Often I busy myself with household chores but every now and then I’ll take a moment for myself to do something which I otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to do such as today when I ran myself a bath, threw in a rather large Lush bath bomb then poured myself a glass of Cola and turned on the tunes to keep me company.…

Bleeping Beauty!

For the first time in years I’m starting to care less about how I look. I feel a lot more comfortable in my body these days partly due to weight loss but mainly due to some kind of mid-thirties self acceptance.

I’ve come to realise other than clothing, hair and makeup there is very little I can do to alter my appearance these days. There’s no point in sitting for hours slaving in front of a mirror dragging GHD’s through my hair each morning when I’d rather throw my hair into a bun, enjoy a brew, save my hair the damage and myself the time.…

#LivingArrows – Piglet & Bear 2/52 (2018)

The kids have now settled back into School for the start of the spring term and I’m finally finding a routine of sorts to fall into for the New Year. I have already caught up with putting together, editing and uploading seventeen or so videos for YouTube and I’m hoping to make a real come back in terms of Vlogging.

This has meant spending a little less time on my blogging throughout the week but once I’m up to date and back on the ball then I’m sure I’ll get back into a regular routine for writing posts and such like.…

#MySundayPhoto – Fire On The Side

I’ve never really been a morning person that said I bleeping love watching the sunrise although barely ever see it as I’m too busy observing the back of my eyelids. For that reason I prefer to watch the sunset; the colours, the shades, the cloud formations and the overall atmosphere as the sun gently dips beyond the horizon.

I’m incredibly lucky to live somewhere which I am surrounded by stunning scenery, no matter how bad things may seem, how low I may feel, scenes such as this send my spirits soaring. That and my thoughts reeling as my mind works on overdrive as I look into the distance taking time to process the day gone by.…
