Dark nights are here. Boo. In hopefully better news I’ve pre-ordered an iPhone X, delivers mid to late November. Swithered all week but ordered on Friday. An every two year purchase from now on.

Media
Saw Thor: Ragnarok on Friday. Funny, colourful and a great Marvel movie, easily the best of the Thor films which in truth isn’t saying much. Can’t say any more as spoilers.

Also started on Super Mario Odyssey. What a game, Nintendo does it again. Didn’t expect the Switch to be the best console to own this year but so far it’s winning easily.

Kitchen is done. Finally. Just need to get everything moved back in again which is only half complete and get used to the new equipment and where everything is. Feels like we’ve moved house! What’s also done is my week off. Got lots done around the house but not much else. Was also a sad week as a friend suffered a personal loss. Getting old sucks.

Media
Picked up Stardew Valley on the Switch. Lovely game and well worth picking up if you’ve got a Switch.

So when I said last week that the kitchen will definitely finish last week I may have been a bit hasty. Floor is now down, painting mostly done but still a few outstanding jobs. Today and tomorrow have been promised. In other news, I’m off work this week. Woo hoo. New car to sort amongst other things.

Media
Still enjoying Star Trek Discovery despite some dickish characters. Still enjoying Destiny 2 despite “The Grind”.

More frustration as the new flooring was delivered but the fitter was unavailable so the kitchen drags on. It will finish this week, and I’ve delayed my week off so I can focus on getting it all sorted. Dragging now. However, it’s looking braw so shouldn’t complain too much.

Media
Watched Blade Runner 2049 on Friday. Stunning film and a worthy follow up to the original. Caught it on IMAX and it looked and sounded great. Felt it a tad long but that was more my tiredness. The world it depicts is so real but it really is a must see in the cinema to get the size and scale of it. This and Dunkirk are my fav films of the year so far.

The kitchen drags on. Mostly all done (and it looks great) but one of the last major tasks was the new floor…and they’ve shipped a mixture of flooring so the fitter had to stop on Saturday afternoon. Instead of finishing today leaving me with painting it will be mid to end of this week. Frustrating. Still, a week off work starting this Friday to get everything done and the house back in order.

Media
Star Trek Discovery off to a strong start. Looked good, story wasn’t a disaster and the opening credits were a triumph. Looking forward to more.

Picked up a SNES Mini this week much to my surprise. Tesco said they wouldn’t deliver on release date but they did. It’s tiny but the pads are the same size as the original and the games included are a fantastic range of titles from the Super Nintendo days. Shame there is no Pilotwings though (hack coming soon hopefully) but it’s the easiest way of reliving some classic games. Can easily swap between games, states can be saved and some screen options to try and polish up the vintage visuals. Well worth a purchase if you had a SNES back in the day
