End of a Journey, Start of another.

Two days I officially closed my long running website SailfinSims after over seven years of being online and active. (For those of you who aren’t gamers, this was a site entirely devoted to the Sims series, where I and others created custom content for these games.) As sad as I am to see it go, it was time and to honest, a relief. I think in my need to hold on to something I was proud of, I kept it online far longer that perhaps I should have.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I know, I know, it's almost three weeks late with this blog post and I'm finally getting into the swing of things. My first post of 2016 would have been a lot sooner. Unfortunately, my region (Aberdeenshire) was affected heavily by severe flooding caused by constant rainfall which contributed to a massive increase in water in the River Don. The street I live on runs alongside that river and although we have flood defences, with the sheer volume of water, it managed to find a way around the levy. Apparently in the forty years since the houses [...]
