Back To The Platformer

Posted by Aardvajk, 23 July 2016 - - - - - - · 350 views

Back To The Platformer Struggling to get going this morning, so thought I would update my journal for a change.

The spaceship game was a neat idea but a bit too ambitious and was growing out of control. 
So I'm hoping instead to us...

Slipped and fell down three steps flat on my face onto concrete at work yesterday. Have smashed up two knees, one ankle and one wrist. Falling over at the age of 40 is a lot less funny than it was at 20.
