Day Out at the Steam Railway

My little boy loves trains, he loves Thomas the Tank Engine and Chuggington and could watch them all day if I let him, lol. So as its his 3rd birthday this week we went over to the steam railway at Preston Docks in Lancashire at the weekend. He got to look at all the old steam engines and have a ride on the railway. He even got to go in the engine and pull the whistle. I think that was his favourite!
The engine that pulled the carriages is in the picture above and the bday boy in the other.

Blue and White Ghan

I've been working on this a few weeks and I've finally got it finished!!! Its 5 by 5 squares, about 9-10 inches per square. I realize now why supersaver wool is used as this baby cost me just over £30! I used King Cole Magnum denim, Aero White and Multi denim. I think for my first full granny square ghan, it came out alright!!
This was such a joy to make, I will definatly be doing more in the future!!

The Church of Gaming!

My old friend Andy just sent me this really cool link to a little site called The Church of Gaming. This made me laugh and I read it to my partner. I thought it was really cool and I just wanted to share with you guys. If there was such a Church, I think I would have entered it many years ago.

Andy, Thank you for sharing such wisdom.

Final Fantasy IV The After Years on WiiWare

I've dipped my toes in the sea, so to speak, and bought Final Fantasy IV The After Years on WiiWare. I got it last night and I'm quite enjoying it even though I died 3 times right at the start and had to go through the start story again before I got a chance to save. I'm not sure what I'm doing but I'm enjoying it. Here's a link to the offical website. Click the North American Icon www.ff4theafteryears.com/
