Thanks guys!

As I got to a kind of writer's block on day four I asked for help and I want to thank bitcraft and BlueDragon for their help.

I watched the video BlueDragon recommended, and was impressed I now have a fully functioning menu in my game and it was so easy (google 'kezmenu'). I also think I may need to rethink the 'player lives' part of the game... try something new...

Anyway day five is upon me and I'm now getting the game ready for art and such, as much of it is just simple pygame.draw functions atm. Maybe i'll use lepton?
