Blood and Games

It's Friday! Or FriYAY as I keep referring to it in my head cos I'm very much looking forward to the weekend.

On Monday I went blood doning after work. I was a bit worried after what happened last time, but when I explained it all to the lady she had a look at my arm and said she couldn't understand what the problem was cos my veins were perfect for donating (which is a lovely compliment that I feel I should put on my CV.) So, yeah, I don't know what that was all about before. Maybe my blood vessels were misbehaving that day, or maybe the lady felt something that wasn't there. Either way, the important thing is that it all went smoothly this time. I didn't even bruise afterwards, which was nice.

Tv-wise, I've recently started watching A Discovery of Witches cos someone recommended it to me and I'm really liking it so far. I've just finished series one (which in typical British-fashion was only eight episodes long) and am looking forward to starting series two when I get a chance.

Games-wise I've been playing a lot of Repton these last few weeks. I re-bought Repton 3 when I got my new laptop a few months ago and I have no regrets. It includes Around the World in 40 Screens, Life of Repton, and Repton Thru Time which are full of levels that I have such fond memories of playing as a child. And unlike some other childhood games it's still fun to play and I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that I get when completing a particularly tricky level! I'm now wondering if I can complete the whole thing. Probably not, but I'm going to enjoy trying!
