Apologies for the silence.

Long time readers will know, I have a terrible track record when it comes to letting you guys know when I’m disappearing from the blog. And I am really sorry for disappearing for a couple of months. My absence wasn’t planned. At the beginning of August my hamster, Strat, passed away. OK, for some people that might not seem much of reason to disappear but after everything else that happened this year, but after Strat’s death I just wasn’t in the right mindset to sit down and write for this blog. But after nearly two months, I’m feeling motivated to get back into blogging!

So what have I been up to? Well, I spent a week at Center Parcs in Sherwood Forest. This was my first time at a Center Parcs and I absolutely loved my time there. The weather was great, the starff were amazing and all their COVID precautions were spot on. After I came back, I got another hamster.

His name is Ezio, after one of my favourite video game characters- Ezio Auditore from the Assassin’s Creed series. Yes, he does appear to love running and climbing just as much as his video game counterpart!

And that is really all that has been going on in my life, at the moment. I will be getting back into my blogging schedule straight away. On Thursday, I will be bringing you guys back up to speed with the gaming I have been doing for August and September. On Saturday, I’ll be talking about the Humble Choice for October. I just want to finish this rambling post with a huge thank you to everyone who has continued to drop by and read my posts while I have been away and to you guys reading this post. I hope you are staying safe and I’ll talk to you soon!

Update: I Would Like To Introduce You To Someone… Sort Of.

So, last week I was very quiet on this blog, in fact I didn’t post anything apart from on Monday. There was a really good reason for this, as I was preparing for a new pet. Unfortunately, I don’t have any picture yet, as he has been busy getting settled in his new home; but on Thursday last week, I brought home Strat, my Syrian hamster.

I’ve been thinking recently about getting a new pet, as it has been several years since my rabbit, Shadow, had passed away and now I felt was a good time to get one. I’ve always loved hamsters, having owned one when I was younger, Why have I named him Strat? Well, he is named after one of the main characters in Bat Out of Hell the Musical, a rebel who likes to make a lot of noise and cause chaos. That probably gives you a good idea of my Strat’s personality!

I wanted Strat to get settled, so I’ve been avoiding my computer for the past few days, to give him that peace and quiet. I iwll try and get a picture of him for the next update post, but no promises!
