Things

I didn't mean to go three weeks without posting anything, but I was busy and then I was ill (labyrinthitis - at least it wasn't covid, but it's also a thing I would describe as wouldn't wish on my worst enemy). Some thing that have happened: 1. I had a birthday - at the beginning... Continue reading

I have a niece now

I now have a niece. I can't meet her for a while, but that's not a problem because I don't find small babies that interesting. They don't do anything. (Human) just aren't cute. Not being able to hold her is a bonus - I met my nephew when he was two weeks old and there... Continue reading

My routine

It's hard to know what to write when nothing much changes. Even on Zoom chats the answer to what I've been doing is the same as I was doing last week. But I realised I never talked about it on here. Most of my time is taken up by work (sadly). Usually I'd leave the... Continue reading

Stargazing

I had done some stargazing years ago, inspired by Stargazing Live. Last year I finally managed to catch the ISS going over, but generally standing outside in the freezing cold in January learning constellations wasn't as appealing. But then I was inspired by the recent Jupiter an Saturn lining up. I went out to look... Continue reading

Cutting my hair

I hate going to hairdressers. This is why I have long hair - I only have to get it cut every six months (plus the hairdresser said that in order to get my hair looking good and suiting me while short I'd have to put stuff in it, thus negating the time-saver of having short... Continue reading

The washing machine saga

A year later, I'm finally writing about my washing machine and why it took three weeks to get it.

A little more normality

I intended to post something for Reading Wednesday this week, but I've been so busy this week I just didn't have time. In the first 50 days of my 100 days of code I missed one day. This week I missed three. But I had one evening where I was worrying about my smoke alarm... Continue reading

Updates

Or things that have (or have not) happened since I had time to blog, months ago... 1. Back in November Sammy had a stroke, struggled for a week and then died. It was a year and seven months old, which made him an old man, but on the young side of old. He couldn't sit... Continue reading

What I've been up to

I've been doing lots of coding. I have a whole list of projects because it's doing things that help me learn them. There was also tennis, until it finished last weekend 🙁 I signed up for . I missed it last year because it was just too hot and now it's about to be too... Continue reading

What I've been doing

A lot of programming stuff. I have found that learning things that I'm already using at work has been such a help - there are some things I never knew existed and now I could change them to make them so much simpler. So it's useful and interesting and fun, but also time-consuming. Tennis. The... Continue reading
