... And then I Became a bit of a Gamer!

I have a confession to make to you readers of my blog ... whoever you are ... I've recently been watching the play through of Assassins Creed online.  I've never been able to find a switch off in my life; I'm always thinking and analysing life, but now I can finally relax.  When I watch it being played, I forget everything in my life and can just exist in an imaginary world where nothing in reality matters and all my troubles melt away.

In other news, I have successfully caught up with my favourite gaming series "The Guild" and would definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it :) I also bought a copy of Oblivion 4; I know I'm 5 years late, but my laptop won't run Skyrim which makes me sad :( Never mind.

So yeah, that's my gaming life at the moment; I think Gavin is secretly pleased that I'm slowly learning more about it and soon he might actually have a half decent player over the holidays for COD4 ... yeah ... that could be a while to be honest ... o.O....

What else ... ah yes :) I should tell you that our 1 year anniversary went brilliant!!!!  It was such a lovely night - we started out by cooking dinner at the flat and then we went out to the top of Williamson Park and cuddled together looking over to Morecambe Bay; it was really beautiful.  Anyways, pictures!

 This is the pie once it was finished and decorated by Gavin and I - it was lovely :)
 These were the chocolate rice crispie cornflake cakes I made for pudding ...
And I'm sorry, it was too tempting ... I made a cheese ruin with the blocks of cheese Gavin cut ... I tried to make a house, but it fell apart ... so that's why it's a ruin :) x

Just on my Mind

I just wanted to post today, to say that I love my boyfriend.  It's hard when you're in competition with your parents - they want something different to what you want.  They're always telling you to start listening to your head more because your heart always lands you into pain.  But I'm following my heart again and this time it's going to work.  Because I want it too.  People tell me I take life too seriously, that I take my relationship too seriously, my mum in particular.  But if I don't take this chance, if I lose a great opportunity, I may never have it back.  I make my new year's resolution this year to be less serious and to not care as much what people think.  It's not always the end of the world.  Oh, and the relationship thing...?  There are just a few times in life where family have to be put second, even though it breaks your heart treating them as somewhat less important.  But I've got to follow my heart.  I don't know where it's going to lead me, but I want to have the courage to go there and face those daemons head on.  And whilst I'm still with him, Gavin will always come first.
