Happy birthday to me!

Well I’m a bit late with this…what can I say I’ve been having a good time and er…life.  Anyway, it was my birthday on Tuesday 14 November.  I usually post something to mark the occasion although before anyone get’s too excited it’s a regular birthday so no repeat of last year’s London trip / go see my fave band in concert…just at home, family, prezzies and a take away.  This year to celebrate turning 41 (I know…I can’t believe it either)… I got Watchdogs 2 in a limited edition steel book, as well as the limited edition ‘crystal’ variant of the official Dualshock 4 PlayStation 4 controller.  I also got some money and vouchers, some of which I put to use buying a couple of Blu-rays, namely The Huntsman: Winters War and the new live action version of The Jungle Book (review to follow).  Overall had a great day and my thanks and best wishes go out to my friends and family.


Happy 40th birthday to me!


Well, here it is, I have reached 40.  Wow.  I don’t feel anywhere near that age, even though I suppose it’s still young.  I started my birthday week by visiting London, seeing my favourite band and checking out the sites, then with a couple of days of relaxation, it’s now officially my birthday, and I’m off out tonight for a meal with my family.

Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to wish me a happy birthday or have sent cards or gifts / money etc.  I am eternally grateful and it’s turned out to be such a special day for me.  My family have spoilt me rotten and I’m enjoying every minute.

I’ve got some posts on the way over the next few days including my thoughts on Halo 5 Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider and a review of Whiplash is imminent.  Just trying to come down a little from all of the fun and excitement, which it has to be said has blown my mind a bit.  I can honestly say I am not used to being the centre of attention and probably find it uncomfortable, but these past few days have given me food for thought and I feel determined to have a fresher, more positive outlook on life and not let the past or negativity cloud my head.  You only live once (or so they say).
