I'm back!

Ahhh it's been a while! So what have I been up to?!

I ended up taking a hiatus due to last year being really stressful, with a lot of changes, about 3 house moves and everything else. I kind of lost my passion a bit after all the moving around I did, and having to cart my collection around is a massive effort.

However - The last few months things have been getting better and I can now say I'm back!!! I'm also back living with my parents. It isn't great, space is tight, but i'm trying to save for a mortgage so I'll have to make the best with whatever set up I can get away with for now XD

I've managed to pick-up quite a lot more stuff aswell which I will get into on some later posts. I think my best find though from the last few months is some great PS1 games I managed to grab from a charity shop up in Cheadle when I was visiting my sister. I manage to bag Metal Gear Solid, Doom, Resident Evil and some other random Disney ones for a grand total of £14. I was beaming walking out the shop, my sister was looking at me like I was some sort of freak.

I've also started dabbling with buying and selling on Ebay - well, preparing to. I've been watching a lot of videos lately of the great things people have managed to pick up for cheap and sell on for a great price, so this might be an avenue I might go down, making videos of everything else I manage to pick up at Carboot Sales or charity shops, not just games. (I'll probably end up keeping everything for myself though like I normally do...)

Anyway, I'm sorry for rambling. I suppose I should get ready and get to my job...

Busy bee

I've been a busy bee the last few weeka! I've been to several festivals over the summer and started a new hobby so I haven't been out and about buying much retro recently!
I did, however, buy a big bundle of PS1 games around 2 weeks ago. Titles included:
Chronicles of the Sword, A Bugs Life, James Bond 007 racer, Tony Hawks 2, Tony Hawks 3, Treasure Planet and Planet of the Apes!
So I didn't do too bad, only paid £10!
On another note I've started up on Etsy making jewellery. I plan to make some game inspired pieces! Keep watch!
