I don’t like hospitals

May 6, 2010

Sorry for the lack of updates recently.

Then – on the same day (just after our Christmas lunch), my sister-in-law asked if I wanted “to see her old Frogger game”. Well, of course!

Socks for Christmas = Epic Win

December 25, 2008

Yes, “socks for Christmas”. Such a cliche.
Most gamers would prefer *anything* else.

But this year, they’ve led to me naming “The World’s Coolest Retrogaming Mum”.

See “why” – after the jump.
