Triggered

Reading time: 1 min
So I’ve yet to complete the re-design, which has taken far too long… however it occured to me that the content side has fallen behind somewhat. So I’m probably going to start tackling themes – maybe the 7 sins to start (why are sins so much more fun than… ehh what’s the opposite of a sin?). I’ve also got some thoughts kicked off by a book I’ve been reading – The Trigger. More on that later.

Cough, cough, splutter, splutter. I hate this time of year. Well not true I really like it, if only it wasn’t for the sore throat, tickly cough… hold on I sound like a cough medicine advert. Back to work tomorrow… joy of joys. Hey, I haven’t asked for a while..how are you?

Coldplay – Trouble. Song for the moment, wonderful, quiet, soaring. Get it and listen. Baby-sitting tomorrow night. End of a quiet week. Managed to do some Xmas shopping, I think we bought about 4 or 5 presents, and it seems like we still have about 40 to go… tiny dent made though. A few current events are dwelling on my mind. Reliving past events, but from a different perspective though, and makes me happy to see where I am today, in a much better place, happy and content.

Nice quiet

Nice quiet weekend, and a nice quiet week (so far). Caught up with some friends, survived a less than wild night on Friday, and hoping to do some Xmas shopping tomorrow (urgh). How are you?

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.

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’ve found myself more and more inclined to fall into a kind of loafish, lazy attitude recently. Topped off with manic bursts of productivity. 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, …
