If gaming isn’t a part of your life, you’re doing it wrong.


  • Striking Gold (and Strike Two)

    Negotiations over Pay Restoration for Junior Doctors have stalled, and it looks like we’re heading rapidly towards a second strike. Meanwhile I’ve been out and about in Cornwall, and working on the doors. Cornwall Gold and Tolgus Mill This week’s Monday adventure with Evie was down and around Truro, starting at Cornwall Gold.
