I missed the chance quite a while ago to write about the finesse of mystery accompanying the Five Nights at Freddy's game series by Scott Cawthon that has almost haunted me since I learnt about them. Never played, but always fascinated. The thing is, it didn't translate well to book form. Don't get me wrong: … Continue reading Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Book
Unfortunately, not much on the photo stakes this week, as I haven't had much of a chance around my work to find subjects for photography.

With its bouncy, light pink feel, this photo could be taken as the epitome of summer. The disks remind me a little of the beach - I guess the sunshine we've had recently is making me crave dipping my toes into sand. Taken on the tenth, on my mother's birthday.
Don't even say a word about it. We know my reasons for not posting or the Tuesday or the Monday, but I wanted to share a photo of the week nevertheless. Plus, a couple of long blog posts can wipe me of other writing ideas for a bit. Anyway, these pretty little star-like flowers hug … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Star-Faced
