I Built a Gaming PC!

It often surprises people that I’m actually a massive geek. I’m a child of the 80’s, so things like Star Wars and Star Trek we’re important parts of growing up. We always had a computer in the house for as long as I can remember. We started with a32K BBC Micro, before I bought a second hand48K ZX Sinclair Spectrum(which I still have at Mum and Dad’s somewhere!)

I still have my original Gameboy sitting on the shelf of my flat. It still works, although I only have Tetris here. My copies of Super Mario, Kirby’s Dreamland and Megaman 3 are somewhere at my Mum & Dad’s with my Spectrum.

A lot of the time, these might be small silly choices, but there are obviously a huge amount of places in the world I’ve never been, and things I’ve never seen!

This all started when I was food shopping and noticed that steamed puddings were on special. I love a steamed pudding when it’s cold outside... definitely a good winter warmer. Thing is, I’d never had Spotted Dick before, and wasn’t even entirely sure what it was. I mean obviously I’d heard of it before, and I still snigger a little bit like the child I am, but beyond that, I was pretty clueless... so I thought it was about time to try it... I mean it was on special anyway right?
