Baby seats and laziness

So we are half way through the week today and all I have done is setup this blog and play some poker. I mean seriously, I have been beyond lazy this week.Oh, I didn’t tell you did I… Im away to be a DAD! Lazy, I don’t have time to be lazy?!

Little baby boy (please be a boy!) will be with us in a little under a month, I am so excited – I honestly haven’t told anyone but I am so excited about seeing my son (or daughter) for the first time. I never had a dad growing up, he let my mother down and well things didn’t go great for all of us. So now its my time to shine and be one hell of a great dad.

My wife and I went out today and bought a load of things for the baby. Everything from blankets, to bottles, to some awesome tshirts (these were for me, they are amazing!). We also ended up making two pretty large purchases today, one being a baby cot and a baby car seat. The cot was fine, we knew what kind of thing we were looking for so after a few shops and some chatting the decision was made and we got it there and then – it gets delivered next week, when I have to build the damn thing.

The car seat on the other hand we have been speaking about for well over a month now. We knew we wanted a Britax car seat but what one, what color and where to buy it was what we had talked about for what feels like 9 months now – see what I done there?! :)

Once we got home I decided today was ordering day, I jumped online and started hunting for Britax reviews and eventually found the model we wanted, with all the features that we are happy with – now the color, my wife chose that and went for some luminous green color. So thanks to some good Britax Marathon reviews and comparing every model to each other we are now proud owners of the Marathon G4 Kiwi – yep, I said it… Kiwi…

Tomorrow really is a lazy day, thankfully. I have been really busy this week getting things done around the house for the baby, so tomorrow will be a well deserved day off. No doubt I will be playing Sniper Elite 3 again :)

Here goes guys… My blog

A lot of you have told me to start blogging because I am “funny” and I have some good “opinions”. Ha!

For those of you that don’t know me, I am Mike – obviously… I am a fairly normal guy, play sports, gaming, like to read a few books and go to the movies. I am told I have a strong opinion about movies and gaming, we will see I guess.

I was told the internet likes lists so here goes

  • Sports I play: Football, Soccer, Wrestling
  • Favorite Book: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea – Fantastic book!
  • Latest Books I have read: Actually, I haven’t read in a while but I do listen to audiobooks. Stephen Kings 11/22/63 and Mr Mercedes.  11/22/63 is probably my second favorite book of all time. Listening to that book was such a joy and it made my commute to work so much easier.
  • Games I am playing: Destiny, Sniper Elite 3 and The Sims 4 – I am addicted to sniper elite 3 on PS4 just now, like seriously addicted.
  • Most recent Movie Trailers I have see: Annabelle – Thats shit is crazy! I like a good horror movie, something really creepy and maybe a little gore. Annabelle seems to be right up my street with the whole “true story” aspect. There are a load of movies I am looking forward to so hopefully I get the time to talk about them a little more.
  • Last movie I seen: Sex tape – It was OK. Don’t run out and see it or anything… Maybe rent it or something, if you have NOTHING else to watch.

I think that covers most of my latest things I have done, seen and or played.

I am going to update the blog a couple of times every month with some a movie or movie trailer review (or in my case a grilling) and share some of my own gaming videos. I am planning on doing a live stream of my Sniper Elite 3 addiciton soon, should be able to get it on here too.

Until next time.
