I've been watching the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals this week, so no W3:B&W, other than what I played on Monday. But it is time spent with husband, so that is a Good Thing.

We're both getting excited about our trip to Cardiff in August. I really need some 'nice' nightwear... Yes, I said 'need' and I meant it! I also need some nice maxi-dresses so that I can stay cool and comfortable.

It's raining today, which means digging out a pair of boots. WTF? It's JUNE!!!

And yes, work is slow - lots of people are off due to the school half-term. And even when I tried to make progress on a thing yesterday, I couldn't because other people need to do something first. Le sigh.

The latest practice (how did we get to #7 already?!) in Leo Babauta's 44 days challenge is 'Loving Kindness'. You begin by wishing yourself happiness, peace and freedom from trouble, then someone you love in an uncomplicated way, then someone you feel neutral about, then someone you REALLY don't like, then your group (family, country, something in between), then all living things. I'm finding it a helpful way to meditate because I'm thinking of something rather than trying to keep my mind empty. And doing it first thing in the morning before I do anything else means it gets done!

The new character sheets also continue apace. I think I only have two more to do, then I can get on with the plot!

I have spent the morning so far sneezing and blowing my nose. Hope I'm not coming down with something...

Planning to swing by the doctor's this morning and book a smear appointment. Yay...

Well, that's all for now. Time to get this day started!
 Last night, I FINALLY got to play the Gladio/Iggy version of Ch13. It was... interesting. They took a different route through the Keep and it filled in some of the gaps in the story. I'm not sure what I was expecting, really. Anyway, I'm now at the beginning of Ch14 and expect to finish the game on my next session - which will probably be Friday.

As well as my own realisation of what's going on on the train, I watched a YouTube video yesterday that tied it all in with the rescue of Prompto. So THAT's why he asks those questions! Of course!!!

I've said it before (and I'll probably say it again!) but this game really does have the best plot of any FF game ever, but it's probably the most poorly executed. But doing this 'story only' playthrough has helped so much with making everything make sense.

We had a lovely meal on Monday night. It's just nice to be the two of us now and then.

I'm having another week of having to look for stuff to do, this week. Everyone else seems REALLY busy and I worry that I'm not doing something I should be doing - but I'm really not. I spent some time yesterday looking at some of the JDs for jobs I've applied for in the past to give me some ideas for expanding my role. I'm not interested in redrafting my own JD until I'm in a position to go for a promotion, but I need to be able to demonstrate how I am working above my grade. I have time.

The only other news is that the house sale should be completed on Friday. It's taken nearly a year but we're nearly there...
