Snuggles and snooze, fire and dad visiting

There was no rush to get up today which was nice. Snuggles and snoozing is the best way to start the day :)

Breakfast and more episodes of The Punisher was followed by having a bit of a tidy up in preparation for dad coming to stay for a few days. This included sorting out the fireplace so that we could actually have it on. It's so nice to have real flames in the living room.

Dad arrived safe and sound we had a good catch up. Food was provided from Rannah and we then enjoyed much tea and many episodes of QI.

Cafe Delicio, Specsavers and The Punisher

Today did go quite as planned. We went out for a lovely breakfast at Cafe Delicio and then booked eye tests at Specsavers. We spent far too long messing around and trying on glasses. When we got home we really didn't feel like doing much tidying up and so we watched Hell's Kitchen instead LOL.

This afternoon we started watching Marvel's The Punisher on Netflix. Wow, talk about raising the bar! Daredevil was good and I also liked Jessica Jones and Luke Cage but The Punisher is the new gold standard. For me this representation of Frank Castle matches closely my hero from the comics.

All thirteen episodes were published on Netflix yesterday and today we binge watched eight of them. It really is a great series and if you like Marvel shows or The Punisher then you should really take some time out to watch this.

Happy Anniversary

Today was our 5th wedding anniversary and also marked 10 years of being together. Time flies when you are having fun. It's been an amazing journey so far and I can't wait to see where things take us next.

Toni was delivered some lovely red roses and we went out for a meal together at Ziyafet to celebrate.

Life is GOOD!

Toxic for the win

I won tickets to go and see The Toxic Avenger The Musical so we were back again for more Toxic fun. This was my 6th time and Sam's 10th.

It was another brilliant performance and now Ben has really settled into his role as Melvin/Toxie and is owning it big style. The wigs were out again tonight which was appreciated by the director who we talked to after the show. It all just never gets old and we have two more return visits plan before it all ends.

Sam and I managed to get Sophia's autograph tonight and gave her the card that we made for the 100th show (we missed her that night).

There's only two and a half weeks lift of the run so if you want to go and see it you need to get your skates on or you will miss out. Seriously, it is well worth going to see!.

Loads of sleep, Empire At War, SQL analysis and TV catch up

I didn't get up until after noon today. It was wonderful! There was so much needed sleep and it was so nice to wake up feeling much less stressed than I had been.

Although we haven't managed to play Star Wars Destiny for a while Sam and I finally got around to sorting out our collection and getting our Empire At War boosters catalogued. We can now proudly say that we have a full set of Destiny Awakenings, Spirit Of Rebellion and are only a few cards short for Empire At War. Now we eagerly away the release of the Legacies expansion set.

I briefly popped into work mode to do some SQL Server memory analysis before falling back into relax mode. The rest of the day was accompanied by The Blacklist, Hell's Kitchen, Inhumans and The Shannara Chronicles. Oh yes, I and I got some laundry done too :)
