Well, this picture is lacking the cake aspect of the day. There’s definitely cake in the house. It was the ‘Winter Bonanza’ at Smallhausen’s school today, which basically means ‘come forth and give us money for tat’. So we bought our annual portion of reindeer food, Small’s annual glitter tattoo, and three cakes. We were there as they were preparing to shut down, so the cakes were half price. Yanno, three cakes for £3, and helping raise money for the school. We’re just doing the best we can for the school, honest! *whistles*
But yeah, been enjoying Pokémon Moon, and slooowly chipping at my gauge square. My back is playing up quite a bit today, so I’m doing a row at a time with a lot of spacing between them. I’m sure that the gaming isn’t helping much either, but. *shrugs* I can be in pain, or I can be semi-bored. I’ll suck it up and be in pain. I try to not think about what this might mean when I’m older and even more broken; better to just do the best with what I have right now.
Oh yes, also on Pokémon — Smalls made me laugh earlier. She saw me playing and was like, ‘Aw, I want to play Pokémon!’ I replied, ‘Maybe someday’. And she retorted, ‘I want to play! This year!’. Considering that her birthday is New Year’s Eve, she’s gonna get that wish. Which she will probably have forgotten by then, but at least it happened and gave me a moment of mild amusement.
I should add that Stardew Valley isn’t getting neglected. I’m halfway through my third year, married, had a kid, and almost have all the Community Centre quests done — just a few more in-game days until I can fully complete it. I look forward to seeing what, if anything, it unlocks. I’m using the wiki as reference for some things, but I’m doing my best to not spoiler. But that’s why I like wikis and the internet — the information is there, and it’s our ‘responsibility’ to figure out how we’re going to use it to our advantage. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Some games I will sit there and use walkthroughs because I cannot be bothered to figure out the puzzles, while others I like to give it a go.
Anyhoos, Littlerbit keeps hovering and wanting cuddles, so I better wrap this up.
