  • Things to take to the Chaos Cup

    It’s Tuesday night and I’m starting to panic a bit about what I should be taking to the Chaos Cup in Chicago. So far it’s: Three sets of block dice (my Fumbbl ones that are easy to read, my Skaven ones because they’re official GW ones, and another set) Four NAF D6s, a D8 and […]

  • Another hard Saturday

    This morning I was woken by La Serpiente coming in to tell us there was a rainstorm and we needed to close the windows. Which was useful of her, but disturbing for my wife, because I fell back to sleep while she had to get up to sort out the rain situation. We were all […]

  • Wearing the kids out

    It was probably a bad idea to stay up until 3am playing Blood Bowl on tbe Xbox, but it did mean I was awake at 1 o’clock when La Serpiente woke up wanting her mother, and got her back to sleep, before going back to organising a fight between some blokes and some orcs. Still, […]

  • A day in Kuala Lumpur

    We checked into our hotel about 10:15 last night and the kids were asleep by 11. I thought that would mean we’d get a lie-in this morning but they were up early and demanding attention, so we had breakfast in the hotel (the Aloft has a pizza oven churning out pizza at breakfast, which is […]

  • Fremantle

    This morning we drove into Fremantle and had breakfast at Moore & Moore, a hipster cafe off the High Street. Then we went two doors down the street to Paper Bird, a children’s bookshop where Destroyer grew obsessed by a book about bums and screamed blue murder when we left without it. I was tempted […]

  • The trouble with gin

    After a night of booze and playing Settlers of Catan, I was never going to be in good shape in the morning. But I’d arranged to pick up a bottle of gin from a friend at Parkrun: delicious, Margaret River gin, impossible to buy in Singapore but wonderful to drink. La Serpiente had awoken at […]

  • Scale down

    Yesterday afternoon while the girls napped I sneaked away to a new climbing wall in the basement of a shopping mall, and had a pleasant half hour falling off things onto a crash mat. Then in the evening I drank the remainder of our Australian gin trove, and woke up this morning with a sore […]

  • Shots and death

    Today we took Young Cheddar to get her MMRV vaccinations done, at a medical centre atop a drugstore in New Minas. (New Minas is a town in Nova Scotia named after Minas Tirith, because I assume all Canadians are massive Tolkein fans, and what better way to pay tribute to The Lord Of The Rings […]

  • Ice Cream Football

    The other day at MEC we purchased an ice cream ball. This was sold to us as a fun alternative to an ice cream machine; you fill up a football sized container with ice and ice cream ingredients, and then kick it around for 20 minutes until you have ice cream. I was immediately ready […]

  • What I learned today about toasters

    We woke today to a house devoid of food, and had to quickly head out to the bakery to find croissants to placate both the girls. There’s something wrong there but I can’t say what it could be. After that, the family split: my wife took La Serpiente to a birthday party while I went […]
