A nice pleasant Saturday. 🙂 Started it off with a leisurely breakfast of bacon rolls and mango juice, followed by a whole afternoon of playing Links 2003. I had started playing Links in single player mode, in the “Career” option. … Continue reading

Just spent the evening catching up with Robin. I haven’t stopped and had a proper conversation with him for a few weeks now. Over the past few weeks we’ve just exchanged a quick hello when we’d seen each other, so … Continue reading

Stupid o’clock
