Say-Gah, Fantastic Beasts and fun with the Lowes

This morning was made of nostalgia. Yesterday Toni bought me a Sega Megadrive all in one console with 85 games on it. Today it was activated! Oh the joys of starting up Sonic The Hedgehog and hearing that wonderful Say-Gah (Sega) sound.

My starting point was brief sessions on Sonic The Hedgehog, Kid Chamelon, Columns, Chakan and Bonanza Brothers. Oh so much fun to be had here. This console also has an active cartridge port so I can pick up a few other games over time (Cool Spot and Aladdin are top of my list).

Breakfast of bacon and eggs was accompanied by the most excellent Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them to round off our Harry Potter and related viewing. I'd forgotten how good this film was and can't wait for the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald next November.

Our evening was spent in Essex in the company of Helen and Keith. The plan had been to play games but we never got that far as we were just having too much fun chatting and messing about. It was a fantastic night with great company. Shadow also entertained us with his wacky bag antics.

The only bad thing today was Zoe throwing up as soon as the car pulled up at home at the end of the night. Thankfully she'd managed to hold it together for the last part of the route. Not a very pleasant way for her night to end so we settled her down and got her to bed.

This excitement over it was time for a cup of tea and some New York Rangers v Detroit Red Wings action.
