I roleplay (tabletop, although I used to LARP), I dance (jazz, ballet, bharatanatyam), I like to cook (playing around with recipes to make them diabetic friendly for my husband, and budget friendly for me). I'm interested in circles about any of those things. I'm also interested in circles about bringing up kids, creative writing (especially children's books), console games, feminism, new technology and media.

So...it's the 25th of January and we've already played 28 unique games in 2016. Can we make it 365 unique games in 2016? Enquiring minds want to know! Are you adding games that I played but you didn't, or is it just the ones you play?

You missed the most important piece of information. I won, I won, I won, I won. I suspect that might be because I was the only person who had repeatedly played Agricola, so I could quickly suss out how to maximise my points based on the strategy I had chosen. First impressions: I liked it better than Agricola. It has more ways to win, which overcomes some of the shortcomings of Agricola. In saying that, I did my old tried and trusted Agricola route: an early resource repeat drop, push hard for population, consolidate food supply for future turns, then spend the last turns maximising additional points (through rubies in this case). It also helped me that noone else was doing the ruby strategy, so I had no competition for those spaces. I'd like to play it again with slightly fewer people though.

These look great! I can't wait to play it again, and hopefully not die horribly this time.

My big brother just accepted a job in LA for at least 2 years...so now I am in the business of planning a family holiday to stay with them. Yay! Any recommendations on where to go/what to do/general advice about the city would be most welcome.

A New Year's Resolution of Food
I've decided this year that we'll eat less meat. I know that's not the best way to achieve an objective, just to put it out there as a blanket, unspecific, difficult-to-measure objective, but there we go. What have I done about this? Well, I've developed on...

Nostalgic Munchings
I can often be found in the kitchen trying to work out how to recreate the smells and tastes of my childhood in diabetic-friendly form. I think that the things we eat when we are children stick with us our whole lives, but the things we make as children per...

Just One Thing!
Andrew was diagnosed with diabetes just before Josie was
born, and since then I’ve been experimenting with various ways to make sweet
recipes more diabetic-friendly. There are a few different schools of thought on doing that.
One is, don’t bother. A small a...

The LifeCare centre is a handy little community centre in Stockbridge - I'm here to observe the board of a charity that I might be joining, but I've also been before for Indian dance classes with Dance Iyahami.

I still haven't read the Khaine book all the way through. Must remedy that tonight!
