Friday was the work Christmas party - it was a lot of fun but the only photos I got were of the fish tank and even those are on my phone which is charging in the other room so... the other thing that happened was that Skyrim finally arrived in the mail. Waiting for installation, patching on a connection that was behaving patchily and getting some basic until-the-next-patch-comes-out fixes put in I finished this book. A good read... it's also published under the name 'Eon'. I have to go find the second book next week!

Skyrim itself, once some control and graphics fixes were put in, has been good so far. I can't honestly say it's as quite up to the standard of Oblivion or Morrowind, but they do set one heck of a high bar. I'm looking forward to playing more of it, these games do tend to grow on me :)

Lego Vader had his territory invaded, so he's on his skeleton horse chasing off Jack Sparrow, who should know better but will probably never learn.

Went to get Lego Pirates today, turns out the only one they had left was a preorder special edition that hadn't been picked up, and at the same price as the standard edition. :D

Also, I went caching, two successes but I wasn't willing to continue to scramble around a quarry in Mitcham when the light was fading.

The first of four catch-up posts going up tonight... on Friday I flew to Sydney to spend the weekend with two friends and to go to a Terry Pratchett event at the Sydney Opera House. On Friday night we got to play a few games, including Three Dragon Ante, which turned out to be a really great game.

This delicious dessert was made by Mum. Raspberry Jelly (not out of a box) with almond cream. Many thanks go to her for this!

The first day back at work was a bit hectic, particularly at my first shift but I enjoyed it still - I do maintain that I prefer to be busy!

Also, we played a game of 500 after dinner. We didn't actually go all the way to 500 due to tiredness, but cutthroat 500 is always fun even if it's only a few hands. That today, Cribbage yesterday... this is a trend I could really get to like!

Tonight my camera almost wouldn't connect to my computer... but at the last minute it decided to be compliant.

Saturday Night was a games night with friends, I had a lot of fun, and there was also delicious cake. In this picture we are setting up a home-made game called 'dice ships', which for all the simplicity is a lot of fun. Jess won both games... and in the second game Laelia and I spent the entire game being exactly the same... we may not have won but it was brilliant fun.
