Stuffed

Note to self: DO NOT go shopping on a payday Friday, particularly after a five week month. Standing in a queue for 25 minutes isn’t fun and doesn’t help your blood pressure. Our local Asda is 24 hour, except for the booze of course and as the prime reason for going shopping was to pick…

We have a lot of stuff in our house. A lot of stuff we don’t need, don’t use and if we are honest, we never needed in the first place. When we lived down south my salary took a large hike, and despite losing my job at Dr. Solomon’s I managed to receive a nice…

To borrow a phrase from a recent post of Tom’s (a very interesting post it is as well) I guess that the tagline for this site should really ALWAYS be “it’s like thinking in public”. I’ve been blogging for years, had a “homepage” before that and could bore you silly whilst trying to score silly…

Focus

I’ve been making a conscious effort, over the past month or two, to improve the quality of what I post here both to challenge myself and in keeping with that whole “personal improvement” thing I’m always told I should strive for (I say “you can’t improve on perfection”, they say “beauty is in the eye…

Back to work today, even the weather has come out in sympathy. I know it’s only Wednesday and I’m trying NOT to focus on the weekend already, honest, but sometimes you get a sign and wonder why you bother fighting it. On Saturday we’re at our first BBQ of the year. This is becoming somewhat…

Oh dear, I can see that “Getting Things Done” is going to be the focus of my attention for a while. Already I’m thinking of little bits and bobs I can do, least of all better processing of my email. The 43 Folders site is going to an excellent resource for me as I work…

Being on holiday has it’s advantages. I can get up at 8.30 am, watch the penultimate episode of Huff, then ponder what to do with the rest of my day. Outside it’s murky grey and a sheen of drizzle is coating everything. So I’ll be writing up a list of “recorded” DVDs (did I mention…

Saturday I had a lie-in. Lounged around all day, watched football, X-Men 2 and pretty much did nothing. The most challenging aspect of Saturday was deciding when to go to the toilet. It was a much needed lazy lazy day after the last couple of weeks at work. That and I’d had a tickle at…

Well apples actually… ohh ok Apple – the people who make all those lovely laptops, widescreen displays and the little white music boxes. I hate them you see. Every where I turn I seem to be reading more and more about their latest little white box (and boy, is it tasty). And now I really…

Or “The advantage of tabbed browsing”. Before I start this is NOT a pro-Firefox post but I will be mentioning it as it’s my browser of choice. There are other browser that offer tabbed browsing. Anyway, I was just randomly surfing when a post on Caterina’s site caught my eye. It’s about the book “Getting…

You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? Not any of the ones that are incinerated. Simple really. OHH not LITERALLY, but literaturally? (ohhh I just invented a word, ohh, no I didn’t). Anyway, I’d choose to be Mowgli in the Jungle Book. Why? Because of the songs of course (whaddya…

Awful nights slee… well I fall short of calling it sleep as it was more a night spent tossing and turning, checking the clock. Isn’t it amazing how much vitriol and hatred we can heap on such a simple device, after all it’s not the CLOCK’S fault I was up most of the night yet…
