A Friday Morning

It's Friday morning.

The first Friday in the new year of 2015, and it's a cold one at that. Freezing outside, to be honest. Brrr!

I have today off from work. With so many folks either on holiday or taking today or Monday off work to extend the holiday period somewhat, I had decided that I was going to take today off (rather than Monday) and have a longer weekend.

This was a good decision on my part, as I woke up this morning feeling somewhat cold and pretty meh, not to mention stuffed up, and my blood glucose reading confirmed that I was somewhat higher than usual this morning. I went back to bed, and managed to nap a bit more before having a good breakfast. In the meantime, plan to just take it easy this morning and relax somewhat. We'll see what the blood glucose reading is after breakfast, of course.

Happy Birthday, mylescorcoran!

Happy Birthday, mylescorcoran!

Another year, another pound sterling, mate! :) If you're inclined to tipple a bit today, time to get out some of the drink, my friend. :) Maybe hot, mulled cider? (If it's cold enough where you are.)

Hope you have a very Happy, very healthy, and very prosperous forthcoming year. And many happies, of course. :)

The Year That Was, Personal Edition...Sort of...

It occurs to me that every year since this Musings and Ravings blog of mine went up, I've done a Year in Review entry about things in a lot of detail. That said, this isn't going to happen any more. I will do a sort of year's perspective, more due to the fact that I've come to realise that... How to phrase this? The year is done. Life has wound its course for 2014, and there's no point dwelling on it too much. That's not to say that I won't remember 2014. I am, I do, and I will. But I can't live in the past, though I can certainly learn from what happened that year.

That's really all I have to say about 2014.

Now? It's time to look forward. And all the good/great stuff that's going to happen this year.

Gaming for 2015 Begins Tonight

'Tis the first Friday of 2015, and as is the usual case on Friday evenings, it's going to be gaming time! :)

The Friday night gaming group will be meeting up for the first time in 2015 (and only two days into the new year!) for their first gaming session of the year. I'll be running the a|state roleplaying game this evening, and am rather looking forward to continuing the adventure that the players and their characters are currently involved in.

The new year of 2015 promises all sorts of roleplaying challenges for me, and I'm looking forward to them, but by and large, it's the continuing games and the campaign play that will be my favourite parts of gaming in 2015. And that all starts with the game session of a|state tonight.

Can't wait! :)
