Exciting Stuff!

OK, I know it’s still 2 months away but I’m feeling rather excited about something that’s gonna be happening to me…. (no I’m not getting marriedΒ πŸ˜±Β πŸ˜›)

However, I am going to be saying goodbye to my roommates, and moving into an apartment… just me and the ginger ninjas, Oliver & Emmett Button ❀

My ginger ninjas

I’ll post about the move in detail when it happens, but since I’m so excited and spending some time today getting ideas for my new place, I thought I’d share them with you… and then will be able to share the finished products too once I’m finished!

So…. what are these ideas, I hear you cry?!

Well, I’m going to be digging deep into my creative side once again and doing my apartment up with a bit of flair, fun and fanciness!

Currently in my room I have a painted wall as follows (which I will be copying in the new place):

However, I will now also be adding in two new wall ideas as follows:

A world map wall which will change from black, to coloured as I tick off all the countries that I visit:

A cork pinboard wall that will be filled with polaroid pictures that I take of fun times with friends and family:

Sooooo…. watch this space as the story unfolds πŸ™‚


Week 24 – Cash and Guns

It’s another week of new boardgames – I’m really enjoying this way of spending weekend nights with friends πŸ™‚

This time it was all about being part of the mafia! And as the name of the game suggests, there was cash, and guns involved πŸ™‚

Super simple concept – get a bunch of friends together around a table, each person is assigned a player and places that character in front of them. The godfather then counts down from 3 and everyone then points their gun at someone they wish to ‘kill’.Β Those who haven’t been shot are then given the chance to pick loot out of the kitty which is placed in the middle of the table… and the person at the end with the most money (and still alive) is the winner!

Easy peasy and so much fun! πŸ™‚

Week 23 – F.R.I.E.N.D.S and friends

I’m a little late in posting my something new this week, sorry… it’s been a pretty busy week with lots on the go!

My something new that I’m sharing with you took place on Friday night.
My friends V&A invited a bunch of true die-hard Friends fans over to their place to play a Friends boardgame.

That’s right – a board game dedicated to the amazingness that is Friends πŸ™‚

And this game truly is for die-hard fans… some of the questions are impossible to answer without the help of Google (of course, you don’t get any points for doing that πŸ˜‰ ), and some of them are just plain hilarious and you get to enjoy watching some snippets from some of the best scenes in the series.

How the game works:

There’s a board…

… with the usual dice, movers, playing cards etc.

And then there’s the DVD… which means you obviously need a laptop / DVD player (say, whaaaat???), and a TV to play the game. Then once you’re all set up, you simply follow the instructions – roll the dice, answer a question (which is often played on the DVD), and move the appropriate amount of blocks if getting it right… and of course, first one to the middle WINS!

In our case, we played in teams of two players… and Vasi & I WON!!!
