I had intended to get myself a Switch Lite for Christmas, but the bundles of a regular Switch plus Mario Kart for pretty much the same price as a Switch Lite and Mario Kart ... well, I pushed the button.

I'm looking forward to finally playing Untitled Goose Game!

Shout out to my mum who suddenly said she'd get me a washing machine for Christmas, which made my budget a lot more manageable!

Finally came to terms with the loss of the nectarine crop this year, and reached the final stage of grieving: power tools.
