post will have to come tomorrow I’ve got sidetracked this morning because I saw that Yakuza 3 for ps3 was for sale in my local CEX and I had to have it.
thats extremely valid, lol

yeah I like the yakuza games, almost as much as I like the Neptunia games.I finished Yakuza Zero and I’ve almost finished Yakuza Kiwami. I plan on playing all the Yakuza games in order and buying Kiwami 2 next because the main story is so good and each game continues the story and Kiryu is a character you can really get invested in. But when Yakuza 3 remastered is £15 on steam and I saw it in Cex on ps3 for £6 I though it was worth saving a little money and playing it on ps3 when I finish Kiwami 2. I’m also replaying Yakuza Zero on my twitch channel. I think likklemel watched a bit of my play through of chapter 1 and I’m probably going to stream chapter 2 this weekend (possibly on Sunday, I haven’t decided yet).

And now for the really long post. So so far this year I spent January out of action. I’d put my back out at work picking up a packet of cigarettes off the floor. I could hardly move and it took me three weeks before my back got better. I still get the occasional twinge but I have a back brace which helps with that.

In February I met the love of my life Niamh. I have numerous profiles on dating sites and was about to give up and delete them when Niamh sent me a message out of blue. We sent messages back-and-forth for a little while and then on the 12th of February we took the plunge and started Dating. We’ve been together for two months now and it’s the best thing that could’ve ever happened to the both of us. You know they say when you meet the right person you just kind of know it’s the right person, that’s how it was with me. It was like I instinctively knew this was the woman I was supposed to be with. Niamh is 48 so she’s a little older than me but I don’t care about that, age is just a number. She lives in Colchester but originally she’s from Dublin. She has two daughters, Hannah and Anne-marie (but she likes to be called ammo), both 21 Because they’re twins but they’re not identical. I’ve not met them yet but I’m sure I will soon.

Finally last month I made an important decision about my work. With is the cost of petrol going sky high, I decided to transfer from the asda in Swaffham to the asda in Kings Lynn (which is where I live). My last shift at Swaffham is this Saturday. And then on the Monday I start at South wootton. I’m gonna miss everyone at Swaffham with the exception of one person, I won’t give her a second thought, but it’s not like I won’t see them ever again. We’ll still go out for drinks and stuff they’ll just be my friend now and not my work friends.

And that’s pretty much what happened to me so far this year.


@Elgood81 Ohh I'm glad you have decided to switch branches and I hope the South Wootton branch will be a better working environment for you! I always use that Asda for petrol when I'm visiting Norfolk :D Are you still planning on going to the Norwich con? I'm thinking of going for just one of the days but haven't decided if Saturday or Sunday yet, probably Saturday.

Also happy that you and Niamh are getting on well. Hope you and your dad are doing okay now?

yeah I’m still planning on going. I might only be able to go for the one day and it’s probably gonna be Saturday, idk yet. When I tried to book that week off work while I was working in swaffham they wouldn’t let me have it cos they don’t like 2 colleagues from the same section having holiday at the same time but I think it’s a different story at south wootton. They’re so accommodating and I haven’t even started there yet so I’ll ask Jannette or Julie (they’re my new section leaders) if I can swap my July holiday for august instead. You never know, they might say yes

hey everyone, I know I’ve been somewhat radio silent for awhile but don’t worry I am still here, still alive and kicking. It’s just things got on top of me a bit and I got a bit snowed under. Work mainly, the owners of asda (A right pair of idiots) expect us to do the work of three people but don’t give us the hours or colleagues we need to do it. Not to mention that the asda futures department saw fit to implement a new till system that flawed and has more bugs than a Bethesda game on release day lol

Also somewhat sadly me and Niamh didn’t work out. Towards the end she didn’t have time for me anymore so we made the decision to end it and since then I’ve become somewhat of a recluse which is very bad and unhealthy, another reason why I’ve been away for so long. I did occasionally pop back in on the discord when I was away in February in Tokyo but I wasn’t quite up to full strength then, having said that Tokyo did a good job at rejuvenating me a little and I’m glad to be going back there again next February.

So yeah I am still here. I’m okay just give me a little time to get back into a rhythm of posting on Animeleague and being more active. I have some time off from work coming up from the 10th of June to the 23rd of June so that will help and I’m also attending Norwich Anime con, but only on the Sunday because surprise surprise work won’t give me the full weekend off because there’s not enough colleagues, anyway it’s better than not being able to go at all.
