Reading List 2018


I've committed to actually reading books, a past-time that was once a great passion of mine. I could easily read a couple of books a month, always carrying one with me wherever I went and snacking on them at every opportune moment be it standing in a queue at the supermarket, or waiting for a bus or in the doctors surgery.

Dungeons & Dragons


My fantasy itch is being scratched of late by playing lots of Dungeons & Dragons. Not the actual RPG, but I've been playtesting an upcoming D&D boardgame from GF9, and this has re-ignited the fire. That my wife Lucy is the DM of our group is a good thing as well, despite the fact that we haven't been able to get everyone together for several months now due to moves, engagements and the usual shit that life throws in the way of slaying monsters with magic swords of +1 demonic binding.

De-Cluttering (House & Mind)


A great way to alleviate anxiety is to de-clutter the mind by de-cluttering the house. Over the years we accumulate so much crap which is then barely used, and just sits around filling up the place.
To that end, we're digitizing all our DVD's and so have a huge amount to sell on.

Avengers Infinity War Review



Thursday night was date night, and what better way to show "I love you" than going for dinner, then spending 2hrs 40mins in silence watching a movie together. And that movie was Avengers: Infinity War. We are both huge fans of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe for the uninitiated) and this was the culmination of 10 years of movies.

Surfing The Waves Of Depression



It has been a tough few months dealing with the anxiety/depression. I've barely had any energy, just wanted to sleep all the damn time and as well as neglecting my household chores (sorry Lucy) I couldn't find the strength to do any hobby activity or even read.

It's Okay . . . honest.


Living with anxiety/depression sometimes leaves you feeling just like poor Stewie in the pic, rocking back and forth with a smile on the outside while inside everything is SCREAMING!!!

In Good Spirits


RECOGNISING THE SIGNS
As older readers of my website and/or Instagram know, I have anxiety and depression, an illness that can be at times a frustrating nuisance (having to take medication every day, sleepiness and insomnia at the same time, extreme paranoia); while at other times it is a debilitating nightmare (night terrors, anxiety attacks, numbness of the mind and soul, sounds becoming so fast I can’t make out individual words).

Recognising The Signs Of Depression/Anxiety

Not your usual post about toy soldiers I'm afraid, but one I felt compelled to write after spending a few days looking at various websites and wondering what new toys I could buy.

I suffer from anxiety and depression and have done so for many years undiagnosed. One of the symptoms is an inability to remain focused on, or finish, certain tasks or projects, and for those who know me in the wargaming community, this has presented itself with dozens of half started armies, game systems and painting projects.
