Took a low level character to explore The Grove this evening, it’s my favourite city for returning to. Each visit seems to show me something I’d missed last time. If you haven’t been yet, or you haven’t had time for a relaxed meander round it’s leafy bowers you really should go and drink it all in.

There’s nothing like the Friday night karma train and a glass of red wine to relieve the tensions of the working week. Also good for map completion, although I have realised how much I suck as a thief in WvW – apologies to the couple of Fort Aspenwood players I shamelessly ran away from crying like a little girl.

I was really hoping for a teaser release for the next patch today, hanging on twitter, reddit and the offical forums all afternoon whilst I should have been working.  Come on Arenanet, Wintersday is over and I want more Living Story now please!!!

So many shots to choose from today after a gathering/exploration trip around Mount Maelstrom which is quickly becoming one of my favourite maps.  I’ve decided to plough my legendary efforts into making Sunrise for my Mesmer so I need (amongst many, many other things) a load of platinum for my gift of metal.

Back to work tomorrow 😦 but at least I got one thing on my to do list accomplished over the holidays.  Here’s Freyja, my ranger who reached 80 yesterday and who is also my eighth profession to get to 80 – so I guess that’s two accomplishments really.  She’s geared cosmetically but not for stats, need to get a feel for her first.
