The camera tripod we currently have is "Velbon" brand, I've had it for YEARS and tbh it's not great. It gets the job done but it's not what you'd call sturdy or hugely stable. It wasn't too much of an issue until we got a Peak Design camera strap that has a (quite standardised) plate on the bottom of it that the Velbon doesn't work with. To attach the camera to the tripod we had laboriously unscrew the base plate of the hand strap, screw the tripod attachment into the camera and put it on the tripod, then undo all of that when we were done. I'd had enough and decided to get the Peak Design Travel Tripod, and man it's impressive. It's WAY more compact than the Velbon, but far sturdier and can go both higher and lower than the Velbon as well, and it's attached by a single ball head so you can adjust it every which way and then just lock it in place and bam! You're good to go.

Man, today was the day of cooking. First these two round loafy bois, then NINE serves of curry for leftover lunches.

We made the tuna mornay recipe from Recipe Tin Eats (https://www.recipetineats.com/tuna-mornay-casserole-pasta-bake/) for dinner tonight, and OMG IT WAS EPIC. I'm not quite sure how she decided it was ten minutes of prep because it took us about fifty, with a whole lot of mess, but holy crap was it worth it! Just absolutely delicious.

Today is our thirteenth wedding anniversary! We WERE going to go out to Meat & Wine Co. for delicious slow-cooked meats but unfortunately over the weekend Kristina finally picked the cold I had. 😞 So instead we got takeaway Thai and are having our meats next week. Finishing it all up with a ginger beer that has spiced rum in it and it is DELICIOUS.

Beanie really likes having his face smooshed into things when he sleeps. Also, MAN he's a good hot water bottle. 😛 My lap is so cozy right now.

I'm not sure how this is comfortable given the sharp edge of the box, but he seems pretty content!

Another visit from @[email protected], another game of Warhammer Underworlds! Beanie was really good, we didn't even need to break out the treats to get him to stop barking. The Underworlds game was very one-sided, Kristina won 12-7-7 and I only scored my last three glory at the VERY end of the whole game.our house darkroom gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds myari's purifiers the wurmspat the grymwatch

My election night is a Galliano Ristretto, a piece of 85% dark chocolate, and Star Wars in 4K HDR.
