Advent, advent, ein lichtlein brennt…

Well, it was gaming weekend! Unfortunately, due to Tim’s poorliness, there was no Aberrant. So, after the customary drinks and lunch at the Wetherspoons in Canary Wharf, it was Vampire time. I’ll admit there was some mild trepidation considering the last Saturday game of Vampire involved Bryce eating pot pouri (out of character of course). There was none of that this time; in fact I thought it was an excellent session with lots of in-character play, some experience, some revelations and a derangement. All is well with the world…
Sunday was a hangover day, not just for me, but also for Kev, the allegedly hangover immune. So, after some dawdling around, it was homeward bound. Penny had spent a considerable amount of time acquiring an advents wreath, a German and family tradition, which was greeted with much child-like joy, just in time for the First Sunday of Advent.
I really couldn’t be bothered to go into work on Monday so I took a lieu day which I constructively spent not doing a lot. There was some reading, some watching films and lots of playing computer games. Bliss! Penny had the day off too and spent most of it reading ‘Pride and Prejudice’.
Plan for the rest of the week? Well, I want to get a little further towards completing Dungeon Siege 2 and I have to finish my Christmas shopping come payday. Oh work? Three day week for me as I have Friday off too, all of it spent in the UK.
