    August Favourites

    I’m writing this while on hold on the phone. I’ve been on hold for 40 minutes so far and it perfectly represents how I feel about life right now. Everything is just on hold. In August I’ve tried to do a few more ‘normal’ things which is definitely helping, but I’m still feeling like I’m waiting to be able to do things properly again. Hopefully doing a few more ‘normal’ things in September will help. Here is what I liked a little more than usual this month: The Umbrella Academy season 2 Even though the final season was released on 31st July, I finished it on the morning of 1st…

    July Favourites

    May Favourites

    Another month of lock down in the U.K. The novelty wore off long ago. I’m not watching many films, or reading as much as I thought I would, or developed a new hobby. I’m watching a lot of TV though. Here is what I liked on lock down in May. Overcooked 2 It was about time I found a new multiplayer game I liked on the PlayStation. Overcooked 2 is every bit as addictive as everyone says. If you’re hoping to unlock 4 stars for the story mode, then it’s definitely not a game for kids. I break a sweat trying to beat the time. Endless hours of fun. I’ve…
