Getting back in the Game

So I’ve not really blogged about my job since restarting my ol’ blog… so I best do a little intro.

I work for a digital and print media agency specialising in video game promotion and marketing; my role is to organise and manage key projects and events on behalf of the company and it’s clients.  One of our key titles is the Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) series produced and published by KONAMI Digital Entertainment.  I am part of a team which manages the global PES eSports system, PES League, and programme of online and offline events.

The “D” Word: Seduction by Awkwardness

So I had a bad date with the help of Dutch, so the best thing to do was Taylor Swift it.

Shake that shit off.

And yes, Taylor Swift is a guilty pleasure and one of my spirit animals.  Judge me all you want.

Put this in my face: Cream filled iced buns

I found out a couple of months ago that my dad hates carrot cake. After I comprehended the fact that we are biologically connected… I decided to make him a birthday cake that I knew my dad would love.  Which isn’t cake at all:

The “D” Word: Take a deep breath…

… and it’s time to dive into the single pool to try and catch me a fish.  Or as other people call it – dating.

I put myself on a dating site, then it’s a case of pulling on a metaphorical pair of waders and find a frog worth kissing.  Unfortunately, having been in a relationship for a while meant that I was somewhat naive.

So here it is: my first date since the big break-up.  And it was a doozy…

The “D” Word: Ready to mingle

You’re single and ready to mingle.  You have the flattering sexy dress / outfit, you nailed your make-up, you’re oozing confidence but there’s a hitch:

How do you meet people to date?!

Seriously?  What do you do?!  Cover yourself in bacon and stand in the middle of a club to twerk?  Set up a Wile E. Coyote trap with a decent steak and beer, stooped round the corner holding the other end of the string?  How was I going to get into the dating scene?!

Put this in my face: Bailey’s Chocolate Mud Cake

My mum and I are close; so every opportunity I get, I like to do something special.  One way, I do religiously, is to make her a delicious cake for her birthday.  2015 was no exception!  (Yeah, I haven’t blogged for a long time!)  And this was the funniest cake!

Kicking the “30” bucket

Turning 30

As I’m hurtling towards the bright, blinding exit light that is my 20’s; I feel like I should be having a meltdown as middle age looms ever closer.  So I decided to do a thing… it’s called a “kicking the 30 bucket” list which is snappier then :

13 things to do by the time I’m done with being 30 (so by the age of 30 years and 364 days old).

Cue the theme tune!

The “D” word: Dating

I get it a lot… Why are you single?  You’re attractive / funny / smart / etc, how come you’re not married?  You’d be an awesome wife / mum one day.

“That’s sweet of you to say,” I reply.  It’s not for a lack of trying, but I must confess finding love is not high on my list of things I must have in my life right now.  Also this is pretty accurate:

The cutest MGS Snake Box ever… probably?

I made a thing in 2014… a cute thing!  A chubby MGS Orange Box. How could I not share it with you?

Chubby Box

Using the design from the left hand boxes commissioned to be made for the BAFTA Game Awards show in 2014; I adapted the design to make the chubby beanie box.
