About Me

I like playing games what more is there to say? A sad geeky solitaire wargamer and PROUD of it. My borderline OCD desire to incorporate spreadsheets and stats into any game I play has led to many hours well spent research and lots of expense adding chrome and historical data to games I play.


I also have a mad fixation with DALEKS (not the spoony blasphemous teletubby primary colour abominations of the new series) but the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s beauties/beasties (& the WHOniverse in general). But for me those Mk III travel machines have been there all my life from my first terrifying encounter aged just 2 at Trago Mills right up to the present.  I love them……..so much so I actually bought one.


Other interests……… Hayley Atwell, Emily Blunt, Helen Mirren……..Laibach, Dubstar, Client, Adam Ant, Excalibur, Crystal Palace FC, Bury FC, the Pre-raphaelites, Art nouveau and 30’s totalitarian architecture, 1960s-70s formula 1 the golden era’s 50’sto70’s Graham Hill, stats and spreadsheets, Hornby and full scale steam trains, toys from my youth (I will never put away my childish things) and a few other dirty little secrets – ABBA, Claire from Steps……..

    Great title! Good luck with the blog! Up there with your totalitarian architecture & hornby! Have you looked at Italian futurist architecture of the 20s particularly Sant Elia

      Hi Sion, is Sant Elia in the EUR district of Rome? I loved that although we only saw it in the dark when we went to a gig out there. It looked impressive as the backdrop to the Hopkins version of Titus Andronicus.

      Cant believe whats happened to London Welsh this week, definately not cricket
