Top 10 games

It is difficult to come up with a top 10 list of anything.

For a start no two people will agree on these things. With video games there are so many it is impossible that everyone will have played all the best games.

I also find that my list changes over time, a lot of the time depending on mood.

Then, what does it mean to say best – how are you judging? With games, best gameplay, best graphics or most ground breaking. Most lists are a combination of these.

So instead of going for best – I’ll go for my favourite right now at this moment in time. The list is pretty nostalgic and I guess is in order of my attachment to them. It might be different this time next year.

Greenwich in Winter

We are fifteen minutes drive from Blackheath and so often go there at the weekend, then walk to Greenwich. Blackheath is a lovely village with a big ‘common’ at the top.

It is a nice spot to go for a coffee and is a little less busy and cheaper than Greenwich itself. There is a new spot opened called avocado something or other (forgotten the real name), they do seriously good avocados though, even if seriously expensive!

Otherwise, Montpelliers is nice during the summer to sit outside with coffee, read the news and watch the world go by. There are a few other nice places also, cafe rouge if would like a petit French experience for lunch and there is an argintinean restaurant which does good pizza and lots more.

Once done with coffee there is a lovely walk through the common, past a nice old church. The common is very open with very few trees, a lot of kids with kites and people playing football.

The walk leads you to Greenwich park which probably needs no introduction.

I grew up in the countryside but had to come to London to see a fox!

There is an observatory in the centre and walking to the end of the park brings the maritime museum. After that you can continue into Greenwhich village, some photos of that…
