As the year draws to a close and I sit looking back on the mental rapids that the whole world seemed to endured during 2016. Of course there was the political events on both sides of the pond, that appears to be a massive blow to the freedom of citizens and a boost to corporate greed.
There was the rollercoaster ride of celebrity passings that took away many people’s heroes and champions of causes close to many people’s hearts. Everyone had differing relationships with those who passed away and each had to watch a little piece of their memories darken. For me I will miss those that made me laugh not that I was necessarily a fan of them directly but their work was something that brightened my life over the years Victoria Wood, Caroline Aherne, Andrew Sachs, Gene Wilder & Ronnie Corbett
Me, Myself and I
Personally 2016 has seen a number of changes to my work with a number of different faces and processes being introduced, also at Home we have had a few difficult times that parenthood books don’t really prepare you for. Sadly I haven’t really blogged too much despite waiting to find the time to keep up regular entries, I want to at least hit a low target of 1 post each fortnight maybe shifting to 1 a week if that is doable. Sadly my clan lost a member this year to illness, we approached this with a clan event held in their honour and a weekend of members sharing stories and everyone celebrating the times we enjoyed in our fallen comrade and each others company.
This year Munki and I have also taken to streaming, not on any regular schedule for the most part, but it’s allowed us to play around with settings and discover things, this has also lead to getting more involved with different streaming communities. We’ve found interacting with various groups of people from many different walks of life very interesting, similar to how our clan as always worked only a little more fluid and reserved.
Along with a number of MissPsyche’s community I have had my passion for pen and paper Role Playing Games rekindled which has been a refreshing break but has also allowed be to look at ways to play these games with my Son. This has now expanded into me looking into running a game for my clan mates that are interested in picking up pen and paper RPG games, hopefully with the Roll20 app.
Have a great New Year everyone.
