A double anniversary

This blog turns eleven today, the blog’s anniversary is something that I’ve usually missed every year since I stopped posting every day, the anniversary message within WordPress coming a day or two late for me to necessarily mark the event.

There’s another reason why I might be otherwise occupied on the twelth of February every year as it marks the anniversary of my husband and I getting together. Today’s is a particular noteworthy date as it marks our twenty-fifth year together as a couple!

Storm Crow Manor in Toronto

Our life together has come with many wonderful memories and some particular overarching themes: namely travel and gaming. We were both gamers of different but overlapping stripes as children, so we had a lot of common interests when we first met at university. A fondness for fantasy and science fiction, both owners of Atari ST personal computers and similiar interests in books and TV shows.

Star Wars is a beloved franchise

During the lifetime of this blog we have played a serious amount of hours worth of online gaming together: notably in World of Warcraft, Star Wars the Old Republic and Guild Wars 2. Over the years we’ve also branched out into coop gaming with friends including games such as Shadowrun Chronicles and, most recently, Gloomhaven.

We’ve also travelled extensively together; indeed, that has been one of life’s joys over these 25 years- having someone special to discover a wider world with.

Mangalore, India (note the ‘g’ not ‘d’)

We’ve travelled to many places and, despite the pandemic I hope we get to visit many more in the next 25 years! Gaming is sure to play its part as well in this journey of life together. We’ve just started playing Bless Unleashed together so more MMO memories to come…
