Netball

A girl’s game. Yet somehow I’ve been roped into playing at lunchtime today. Not quite sure what to expect…. Without getting into specifics, it’s always nice when someone else holds up there hand and says – “sorry, I made a booboo..” It’s twice as sweet when it’s the taxman, and he includes a cheque! Mind you it does introduce the problem of what to spend it on.. .bummer eh?! 😉 Ohh and no ‘affordable’ internet connection at home yet, awaiting SurfTime details – then I’ll polish off the re-design and post it.

Future now

I ache. As usual I did too much in the gym on Wednesday, so my shoulders and arms are stiff and sore. The pain in my legs is nothing new and I’m used to it. We play football every Thursday (should I say soccer? Hell no!) and every Friday I’m stiff – is regular exercise not supposed to improve this? Mind you the game of netball on Tuesday should prove fun… Looks like I’ll soon have SurfTime (Evenings and Weekends) setup – for those outside the UK, it is an unmetered service offered by BT and chosen ISPs. Unfortunately everytime an ISP launches an affordable 24/7 unmetered package the end up pulling it, or poorly implementing it because “some people …

Startup

I’ve always been able to make the separation between a business decision and a personal decision. I’m pretty good at stepping back and seeing the bigger picture. It’s one thing being passionate and ‘caring’ about your work, it’s another to close your mind and concentrate your focus wholly on it.

I think now would be a good time to re-take the Belbin tests – see how I’ve changed. I much more prefer the ideas and implementation stage of projects, but then I don’t think that’s a new thing. I need to start writing stuff down more, …

Extinct

Twenty Species We May Lose in the Next 20 Years Amongst the talk of using science to play God, surely we should be content with our offspring as they are naturally. After all, our species isn’t threatened with extinction… yet.

Retiring

Kinda cloudy this morning, I preferred yesterday’s blue skys… mind you I prefer this mornings 7 degrees to yesterdays 3! I like this time of year, the trees are turning, and you can start wearing those big comfy jumpers… drink hot chocolate… and take long hot showers whilst trying to steam the wallpaper off… yeah must admit – I like Autumn. Started thinking about when I will retire? When will I retire? is one of the first questions I need to get fixed in my head. I must sort out my pension.

Boobed

I normally miss them – TV moments… Judy Finnegan provided last nights eyeful. No more need be said methinks 😉 I’m lacking inspiration at the moment. Started playing about with a WinAmp skin, end result less than ordinary… same happened for NextStart and WindowBlinds. I’m now wondering about the new website design… *sighs*
