Walk Like You

IMG_20151029_080244

Today I get up, not knowing where I am going. The day looks nice outside as I draw the curtains back. And for a change for a meeting I do not have to get up at the crack of dawn. The person who has arranged it has considered that others can only sensibly get places by 10:30am.

I get in the car squeezed next to the road work cones, set up my phone in the new holder and set off, with Google maps navagting me up the A38, a route I’ve not taken for some many many years. Maybe 20 old. Nothing seems to have changed although I’m sure it has.

Berfore you know it I’m here, in northern part of Chestfield. I park up, call a couple of colleges and find my way to the people I’m here to see.

As meetings go, this one was productive and actively getting some things sorted to move forward. There are other meetings that don’t go like this. In particular at this meeting I have very little idea what it is we are talking about, but when I’m lost they are happy to go over it again. In reality this meeting wasn’t for me, I was there to ensure things moved forward and to get a thousand signatures. Without these things wouldn’t move forward else where. By the time I get to my home town, there is time to get something for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary for tomorrow.

I didn’t really know what to get and then I had a light on in my head. And so I went to the engravers. And whilst it was being done I went shopping before sitting down here.

I nipped in next door from the engravers, and got Sega Classics collection, and then went to a charity shop and picked up a tie, and Ticket to Ride Europe. Before you know it though it is time to collect the gift.

And whilst I know my mom will like it I’m not sure about my dad.

IMG_20151029_170921

Perhaps he will just be happy if my mom is happy.

IMG_20151029_170921

Well one hopes.

IMG_20151029_174133

And whilst I was in town I went into Wilkos and got the electrical items I needed to do that light outside.

IMG_20151029_173747

I also got a bottle of Lenor for £1.75 instead of £3.90. What a saving.

The big decision was what to get for tea tonight. I actually looked in the freezer at what had been in their a long time.

IMG_20151029_200510

And along with those pieces of chicken, these peas and corn had been in there ever since ever.

IMG_20151029_200922

I did a bit of mash and then added some chilli to flavour and magnificent.

IMG_20151029_204205

I got the Ticket To Ride Europe out and checked all the bits were there. And yes they are. The board isn’t as big as Alan's but this might make a nice change.

Eventuall I go the PS2 working and put on Sega Classics. Whilst there are several games on here, there is one I’m looking forward to playing.

IMG_20151029_205358

I had never heard of them doing a PS2 version of the game, so would this be any good. I mean if they could do an awsome job of it on the master system and the Spectrum 128, could this be a dissapoint like all the other systems and versions.

IMG_20151029_225025

And so it starts just how you would expect it.

_20151029_225040

So there is something not quiet right, but its not the game play, that is spot on.

_20151029_225053

And hell its challenging!

_20151029_225108

And it ends how it should.

_20151029_225121

And you crash and play again, and you crash and you play again. So that's not a bed thing.

_20151029_225144

Is it the fact the Ferrari car graphics are all wrong. Yes it is.

_20151029_225159

But if I’m truefull. Apart from this, this is the best version ever. It is awesome. Why Why Why had I never know it to be released on this system?

 _20151029_225214

One more go? Yes of course because it is that good!

IMG_20151029_211001

Eventually I switch to Space Harrier, could this be as good?

IMG_20151029_211045

No it can’t, its awful!

And with that I go to bed, put my head phones on and listen to James – Walk Like You.
