The End Of An Era (Sort of)

People say that fatherhood changes you and it really does. My wife and I were blessed with a beautiful baby girl 7 weeks ago and it's been non-stop, as well as having the baby we moved out to a new house in Kent and have settled in. Settling in means unpacking, organising furniture and the services (including dropping down to just 3MB broadband- eeek!) and sorting out the man-cave. My old man-cave was a wonder to behold; full of comics, graphic novels, many retro and modern computer systems and a plethora of old games. The new place we have moved to is bigger and has 3 bedrooms, however the bedrooms are smaller overall than the 2 bed place we used to rent. So tough decisions had to be made and whilst keeping the man-cave I've had to downsize, the DVDs and my old retro gaming systems (Amstrad CPC 464, SNES, Megadrive, Master System, Xbox, PS1 and XBox 360 RRD version) have gone into the loft, it reminded me of the final scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark where the Ark is kept in some warehouse, left forever more (until the crappy 4th Indy film but no-one counts that).... so in short, end of an era sort of!

In the loft are the Megadrive (Genesis), SNES, Master System, PS1, PS2, Xbox and Amstrad CPC 464. So long and thanks for all the fish!
