This week’s prompt was for retro video games, but sadly, I didn’t really play video games back when they could be considered retro. So I’ve gone back a few years and picked one I could answer; mothers! This one still took a while for me to get into, and I really need to read/watch more stuff that has actual mothers in it. I went through a mental list of most recent books read and every time it was ‘mother dead/MIA’. I also didn’t want to fall back on old favourites that I’ve mentioned before in other ways (Leia, Padme from Star Wars for example).  Read More →

Fred's Box, subscription box for kids (and geeks!) Review

I have always wanted to receive a subscription box and so when the lovely team at Fred’s Box contacted me to offer me the chance to review one, I snapped up the chance! I had hoped to use this as a good excuse to begin my foray into the world of videos via an unboxing video, but sadly my body has decided not to comply with that request. I was good though!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Thoughts

This post is going to be laden with spoilers from The Last Jedi Trailer which just aired at the Star Wars Celebration Weekend. So before you read on I would suggest viewing it if you haven’t yet 😉       One Truth The trailer shows us a lot of action, but what really caught my attention was Luke’s final words: “I only know one truth, and that is that the Jedi must end.” Holy crap, right?! I’m going to start by addressing the first part of the line; “I only know one truth”. To me this says that Luke has seen something in theRead More →
