One of the reasons I started this blog was as a way of exploring my thoughts about our profession, from specific issues to wider themes. It’s only been going a few years, but I’ve learned a lot since then both writing here, and reading the thoughts of other bloggers in this industry. I live and…Continue reading Influential? Me?
File this in the “idle window shopping for stuff I don’t need” category. BUT. If can anyone see any gaps or improvements to the following (and yes, I am largely going with Apple because it is easy to setup and I have no desire to hack, configure or otherwise spend ages of my time to…Continue reading Purchase Ponderings
What do you call your documents? What is the first thing you do when you start writing? What is the last? All these things that you do without thinking about, the basic automation that your brain easily handles, over and over again, these things are, to you, so basic as to be forgettable. You don’t…Continue reading Remembering the basics
Friday night, beer, an ex-colleague. He remembers me, I can’t for the life of me remember his name. In my happy drunk state I just flat out said that I’d forgotten his name, I don’t think he was offended or at the very least he was polite enough not to show that he was.

They are starting to annoy and irk and leave me breathless and angry and incapable and pathetically unable to think about anything else…Continue reading Just write
It’s a simple enough question really, and one I’m trying to answer at the moment, how do we know what we don’t know? Part of the work I’m doing with our Information Pyramid (which I’ve mentioned here before) is to try and map the content we do have into some sensible groupings. That will allows…Continue reading What don’t we know?
For a while now I’ve been toying with attending a certain rather well known music festival. Highlights on TV are one thing but there isn’t anything quite like experiencing the atmosphere of these things first hand. This is also the reason that, unless there is an extremely good reason, ever attend a gig at the…Continue reading Always with the music
There is one thing I haven’t done here for quite a while. It’s rather remiss of me so please accept my apologies. Quite simply, I wanted to say thank you. To you. Yes YOU. Thank you for visiting this blog, and more importantly, thank you for coming back and visiting again. A lot of the…Continue reading How rude
So we’ve switched Estate Agents, and taken a different approach with the price. Fingers crossed it gets us a result although, on the news yesterday it was announced that the housing market has slowed again so I guess we will just have to wait and see. Life continues, of course, and last night I was…Continue reading Square root of 1
