Building that little basket of wood settled in the distance tree lines away from the light and the rain full of hope and desire the little nest egg
Lost in the Wilderness of Eastern Europe
How much longer I have is unclear.
I have a bandage, a water flask and some berries/cherries I scavenged from trees. I have found a small countryside house made from wood and with light cream curtains and a table and chair, and sofa. There is not much here. The stove had some old pans but no food. Outside a small outhouse with axe and a pile of wood, accompanied by some matches. I’m going to be able to keep warm tonight. There is a river beside the house, and I might try to fish. It is not good to drink it and I have no way to filter the water yet.
Day 1 of my Survival
Are you able to help with some tips? Are you with me or not? Near my location? I’m in eastern Europe covering the ex soviet states, bordering Romania at the moment. It won’t be long before I’m found. Fortunately, I can use the axe if need be to defend myself.
I miss England. It was awful after the apocalypse, but it was home.

Dead Island (2011) Ryder White Campaign
I decided to turn my Xbox one on the other day as I hadn’t played it for a while, and fearing that I’d be swept into the abyss that is nostalgia, I riskily loaded up the downloaded version of Dead Island: Definitive Edition. I enjoyed playing it originally on the Xbox 360 back in 2011 and onward, and spent many hours replaying it because a) it is a huge game both in scale and storyline b) I loved it. You don’t find games like this, with the exception of Dying Light, anymore. Both Dead Island and Dying Light were created by Techland, although some might argue Dead Island was a split effort.
When I got the Xbox one in 2017 and played Dying Light, my 3rd game on that console, I was immediately impressed. However it didn’t have the glitz and glamour of the luxurious tropical island that we saw in Dead Island. When the campaign in Dead Island was over I was keen to explore more, so went and bought Dead Island Riptide I think sometime late 2017, but am not sure. I enjoyed it. The other day however, I found that the ultimate edition includes the Ryder White campaign which was a great surprise for me! I don’t remember playing this but recall watching YouTube videos. So I began to play.
Anyone familiar with the game will know the island is split into big sections, all accessed as individual segments, and all massive. Ryder White campaign started in the run down slums of the city of Moresby. The storyline so far has been more military focused with more guns which is great. Don’t go dump on the graphics based on the below picture. The game still stands up as being well made, great graphic, storyline, and characters. You know, this is what gaming should be. I think it is time I go and buy the new Dying Light 2, since Dead Island 2 never materialised and the trailer released in 2014… FML.
A part of me doesn’t want to go back on the console, since it just brings me to a state of mind where I feel good. That might sound strange, but if I nurture that, then I’ll be on it as a result because I feel good. You feel me? Yes. I try to keep gaming in the evening so that I am not stuck on it all day. I think my childhood game days are long gone, so are the gaming days of my early 20s, which I don’t regret. They never took up that much time anyway. Always at night!
After the disappointment that was Back 4 Blood, which I couldn’t be bothered to go back and play since December (not kidding) I don’t think I’ll review it either, I’ll probs rest my feeble hopes on Dying Light 2 after the surprise campaign on Dead Island. If I knew how I’d upload myself playing… but I don’t!

Finally in space. “Ship loaded, engines are hot.” You said once upon a time that the view from the earth was an illusion, and that the stars above merely reflections.
“I was preparing you for today, my son.” The day the moon bound ship would launch from the Bahamas. Bound for the stars, abound with glory and secret alien treats.
“Do you see the throttles so gold and the starboard points so clear?” In a blip to be shot into the stratosphere, all care washes away.
“Future now, future past, we are living, at last.”
Can I Take Your Order? Place your order if you dare (2)
Welcome back to Café Bleu. Since we last met back in September, when my café first opened, things have changed dramatically. We originally received a meager 2 star review from the people in high visibility jackets.
Since then, we have bolstered cleaning, food hygiene procedures and quality of service and more importantly food. Now, rather than offering simple dishes like pie and chips, we branched into more exclusive dishes, such as the special house café Bleu lunch. It has proven very popular and is a best seller along with the house coffee munching elephant, a blend of the finest coffee beans in the world. Prices had to increase initially, but after 6 months we found we could lower prices and still retain a healthy profit from sales.
Have a look at the menu above and decide if you would like to order. You can order below:

The Best Quotes From Wizard!
The Wizard let me into his lair today and I briefly smelt what I believed to be brewing tea leaves but actually turned out to just be the smell of some lovely flowers he bought. Some yellow, some white and a few purple with many yet to bloom. He’s got the new vase on his window beside a lit tall white candle. He is fiddling with his new tourmaline tumble stone in his hands as he paces the room. Sunlight beams in and his great purple cloak is translucent, revealing the power beneath as a white shimmering glow. ‘I am honoured,’ I say, sitting in his brown leather armchair, helping myself to some crystalline water beside it in the most magnificent crystal jug.
He hasn’t given me permission to allow you to share, as he says his words are so powerful that only a few may actually read them. You are free to enjoy here, but insists that for safety they do not go any further, for risk of looking rather silly. You can also check out the post on soon to be famous quotes.

Thanks for reading those selected quotes from the Wizard himself. I had a lovely tea with him and checked how his lilies were doing. They have started to bloom and are the loveliest of lilac, pink and purple in a combination. Closer to pink. I also had a look at his crystals and he said that he prefers to work with them at night, something about the moon. I cannot remember. Anyway have a lovely day!
