Sometimes it feels like Nintendo makes games specifically for me. The format of the Switch is exactly what I’ve wanted for a long time. I love the PS4 and PC for gaming but I don’t love having to sit in a specific room and dominate the TV to play things (even though that’s exactly what I’ve been doing with Odyssey).
If I wake up early on a Saturday, I try to sneak in some gaming or something before everyone else is awake. Last Saturday, Tabitha came in and saw me playing Odyssey and wanted to have a go too. She hasn’t played a load of games, though she does like Sonic Advance, so she was just picking up the controls but her glee at collecting coins mirrors a lot of the happiness I’ve felt playing this game.
Winds are up around 35mph so I went to the seafront at high tide to watch the waves crashing, as we know I like to do! There’s also a video on my YouTube but the quality is pretty poor, even though it’s quite impressive. I don’t make enough videos to justify getting some kit that can make them.
Festivals can be stressful, so it's important to unwind.
There was a car show at Newhaven Fort and, whilst it wasn't terribly impressive (there were some lovely cars there, but it was mostly stuff that doesn't interest me), I love going to the top of the fort and looking out over Sussex and the lighthouse. This is where the Contax T2/Superia 800 combination shines.
