I managed to break my laptop in an unfortunate cooking accident (I was reading a recipe off it next to the sink, water from the tap sprayed everywhere etc) so I'm having to rely on my phone. As a result I don't have access to my patterns and as I'm not in the habit of backing up files, a lot of them will be lost : ( Oh well, the recipe worked out perfectly!

I've had an awful stomach virus for just on a week now with no signs of it clearing up. I couldn't work on my cross stitch from the toilet so I've packed it away for a bit. That and the fact I made another error in the mario piece and am still scratching my head trying to work out the best way of fixing it without having to unpick too much. I think I've been stitching too late at night, like midnight, when I get home from work and I need something to unwind, thus mistakes aplenty. In the moments when I'm not strapped to the porcelain or curled in the foetal position I have been playing a few games lately. Mainly Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. This came out recently and without doing any research I picked up a copy only to find out it's just what the doctor ordered! Amazing story, characters with depth, fast paced action, levelling up to my hearts content and a million and one collectables and side quests. Why couldn't the last Final Fantasy be more like this?? *glares at long forgotten FF box*. When I've not fighting Mechon I've been playing a host of other great games including Heavy Rain (which I finished the other day, great stuff!), Read Dead Redemption (I suck at these sort of GTA genre games but I find great amusement in perservering) and Assassins Creed 2 (again not my sort of game because I struggle with the controls but I'm getting there). The weather here is beginning to warm up though and my body is craving a bit of vitamin D so perhaps I need to take a bit of a break and head outdoors!....not yet though...my stomach still hates me.
