Excitement

A quick recap. I injured my ankle on Thursday 17th October (my birthday, what a great present!). Since then I’ve been laid up at home. I still can’t walk properly but at least I can move around. So much so, I’m being taken out for dinner and a movie tonight, having missed them for my…

Strange thoughts

Reading time: < 1 min

I’ve said before that I do this (maintain this website) for me. So how come I feel slightly guilty for hardly touching it for a week? The weird thing is that I feel and think exactly the same when some of my regular reads go on hiatus (take a hiatus? what’s the correct usage here?)….

So

How are you? It feels odd having been ‘away’ for a week or so. My ankle is healing, although still very stiff and bruised. I’ll be at home all week but hope to spend some more time on the PC catching up (soooo much catching up). If you’ve sent me an email I apologise I’ll…

But getting better. More blogging next week as I should be able to move around more by then.

Doctor’s appointment on Friday, probably be off work next week as I still can’t put any weight on my right foot/ankle. I am using the time constructively to hack through the pile of unread books I have, and staying away from the PC as much as I can (mainly because it is upstairs, and crawling…

Excuse me, my manners are appalling! MANY thank to everyone who wished me well last week. Right, I’m off for some more painkillers.

Ouch!

Happy Birthday to me!

As I mentioned on Monday (somewhat obscurely), today is my birthday. I’m not going to say any more on the subject, because it’s my last year as a twenty-something and I certainly can’t waste a second. And anyway, isn’t it a bit sad to be wishing yourself happy birthday?

Tomorrow

Savouring the last days, pondering the new. Tomorrow will be another day, nothing particularly special, same as it was last year no doubt, but it’s a step forward again. I just wish I knew where the steps were heading. Today: Last day of being 28.

Who’d a thunk it! Vaughan’s site – Wherever You Are – has been on the go for two years. He has had a lot to say in two years, and no more so than today’s post, which I’m pretty sure sums up the thoughts of many who ‘blog’. Well said that man! Here’s to the…

Men on the phone

Reading time: < 1 min

Chatting on the way into work, we delved briefly into the subject of men on the phone. Using myself as an example, men are awful on the phone. Well… awful according to most women I know anyway. A typical phone call with my best mate. Me: Hello? Him: Hello! Me: Hello! Him: Hello… (not sure…

Head is fullWork is busy, trying to get a handle on what’s going on, and what the plans will be. Trying to pick up on two other peoples work. Trying to finish their work on time. Also trying to do my own. Trying to deal with last minute requests from clients (not directly thankfully). Trying…

The Contract of Common Sense I think Meg may be onto something here.. particularly in light of a recent letter I received from.. eh.. someone to do with our gas meter. The letter stated that they would be sending someone round to ‘review’ our meter and ensure it was functioning correctly. If we could just…

MiscellaneousI have nothing to say about this: The Prior-Art-O-Matic.“It’s a series of randomly-generated product ideas! It raises questions about the nature of prior art in patenting issues and is occasionally amusing!” I have a lot to say about this: When is middle age?.“If I had to pick numbers, then I’d probably choose the range from…
