Pokemon Collection in Poke Bank

Previously I had posted about the Poke Bank where most of our Pokemon are stored. They are kept in boxes according to their position on the Pokedex. But I have also collected the variants of the Pokemon, the extra Legendary Pokemon and the Shiny Pokemon in their own boxes as well. Here I am posting the Pokemon we have collected thus far – to be updated as the Legendary Event Pokemon are added to the collection. Continue reading Pokemon Collection in Poke Bank

Pokemon – Vivillon variants

So far in the Pokedex, there are 802 different Pokemon (although 1 is still yet to be made available – Marshadow which is no. 802 on the Pokedex). But there are some Pokemon which have different appearances depending on its gender, or actual different variants.

Pokemon Bank

I am sure there are many people who like to collect things, be it music, books, games, camera lenses. I am one such person, as I have collected many DVDs/Blu-rays, books, camera lenses in my time.

Withings Steel HR Activity Tracker Watch

Now for this year’s birthday, my family wanted to buy me something which would be useful. Initially I thought about the Withings Steel HR but was not completely sure that I would like using it. But my family convinced me that it was worth getting and hence they bought it for me. The aim was for it to track all my activities throughout both day and night, including the number of steps I’ve taken, calories burnt and my heart rate. And the fact it looks more like a watch than an activity tracker, meant I was likely to use it. Continue reading Withings Steel HR Activity Tracker Watch

The Trout Inn – Birthday lunch

For my birthday, my wife wanted to take us all out for lunch, since my daughters were still on school holiday. The venue she chose was the Trout Inn in Wolvercote, Oxford, which is not too far from where we live. My wife is always looking for us to experience fine dining with her, and with this pub and restaurant situated in village meant that it would not be too difficult to get to and would not be too noisy.
