Preview of Wales Comic Con – 2nd & 3rd December 2017

My favourite UK convention is coming up again at the start of December and I CAN’T WAIT to attend for the third time.

Geek Adventure Goals for 2017 (Glasgow and beyond)

I started My Big Geek Adventure in September 2012. Wow! That feels like a really long time ago and it’s become such a massive part of my life. I sometimes wonder what I would be doing if I hadn’t written that list nearly four and a half years ago. This year is shaping up to be […]
