Organic design

Dammit, dammit, dammit. Stop start re-design… to the extent where I started to wonder if I could build that in as a feature… a kind of organic website, constantly under design. Then I realised I’m too lazy. There is something comforting about Sundays, the church bell chiming the hour is a nice touch, hopefully when…Continue reading Organic design

Sleep for change

The sun is gone, and we need a good thunderstorm to a. clear the muggy air and b. keep my wife happy (she lives for torrential rain…well anything water related). I’ve started tracking my moods to my sleep patterns. I must start getting regular sleep. If you’ve got 31 days holiday left, what do you…Continue reading Sleep for change


McBeal appeal. Just finished watching it, I still don’t know why it hits home, every week there is something that jars me and I think “Damn that’s right!”. They are beginning to inspire me to write some stuff (after a healthy absence). Oh, still trying to get my re-direct changed, and the re-design is still…Continue reading Ally


Kinda up and down days. Work is work, and socially things are the same. Guilt kicks in as I realise we have still to visit S since she dropped her sprog… I get the feeling it’s gonna be another hard week. Yearly review at work promises to be fun/disappointing/annoying/liberating/disappointing. Hmmm, disappointing twice… that can’t be…Continue reading Rollercoaster

Moving on

ANOTHER sunny weekend, and a sad goodbye (well more of an au revoir). My Aunt & Uncle are emigrating to Oz, which only gives us another reason why we will have to start saving and get there… There has also been a change over the last week or so, I’ve gotten much more serious about…Continue reading Moving on

Holiday request

Man I hate working when the weather’s this good. I also hate the blister I have on my foot. I hate the bills that come in, I hate… well I’m just so pissed off and in such a “aww screw this!” mood that I pretty much hate everything. Except that’s not really true, I need…Continue reading Holiday request


I need to be more aggressive, I’m getting left behind for being too nice, not demanding enough. Maybe I should change careers, I would love to work with animals, or anything more rewarding than what I do now. I am soooo hacked off with work right now. I’m not sure if it’s just my usual…Continue reading Off

Right again

I love being proved right! Just after lunchtime on Monday, the sun is splitting the sky, and I’m in the ‘I could really do with not being here’ mood. S has just said she needs a holiday and I know how she feels. Still badminton tonight, something else for me to do, and the re-design…Continue reading Right again


Recharged after an excellent weekend. Sunshine, a couple of good days, and life is rosy again, isn’t it funny how quickly things can change… It’s weekends like that, that make Mondays so bad.

I want more

Wednesday, slipping down. I’m in that strange place where I can’t be bothered with anything, but desperately want to try something new. Yoga? The often mentioned T’ai Chi? Self-improvement seems to be a continual push, so I’m obviously not happy with me right now. But then I always want more. It’s true. When will I…Continue reading I want more
