While working on some code this afternoon one of my co-workers wandered over to check if I had keys to the office. I glanced at the clock, and realised it was already 6pm. How the hell did that happen? After a quick call home to apologise in advance, I jumped on the bike and started… Continue reading Distractions Abound
I'm not entirely sure why I missed a day on the blog yesterday. I suppose life happened. I'll go with that. While I was at work, and the children were at a holiday club, my other half took a vast collection of old video games to the trade-in store, and gave them a very busy… Continue reading Forty Thousand Winks
Other people have relaxed weekends filled with rainbows, laughter, smiling faces, restaurants, sports, cakes, drinks, and all those other nice things. They post an endless stream of photos recording their lovely lives to Facebook and Instagram - like some sort of distorted advertising campaign for their life. When they do it, I start wondering what… Continue reading The Floor is Lava
I have half an hour left until I get to switch my computer off, climb aboard my trusty bicycle, and pedal my way back towards town. I'm already wondering what ass-hattery will be thrown at me during the journey - this morning was the third in a row where cars have pulled out in front of me with no indication what-so-ever regarding what they were about to do. Apparently I'm invisible.
The clock is ticking towards 10pm as I begin writing this, and it's really the first chance I have had all day to empty my head. If I was going to be lazy I would write about how tired I am - weary really - and how the day has knocked the stuffing out of me. That wouldn't be the whole story though - I got a huge amount of complicated work done. Here's the problem though - if I even begin to tell you what I've been working on, your eyes will glaze over, and you'll start wondering what's on Netflix.
I'm back drinking coffee again. Or at least, I am this morning. I had a cup yesterday too. Before you roll your eyes, and say "I knew you wouldn't last", it's been over a month. I'm not returning to four or five cups a day, because that's ridiculous (and was ridiculous). Maybe just a cup now and again, because I like coffee.
Apologies for the ridiculous title to this post. Or rather, no apologies what so ever. The last two days have been filled from top to bottom by work stuff. I thought it was going to be a slow, careful, methodical week, but no - instead it's been chaotic, and never ending.Never-ending is a funny term,… Continue reading Worky Worky Work Work
Very few words this evening, because it feels like I'm running out at the moment (of words, I mean). Perhaps an early night, a good book, and a long sleep will change my mood somewhat.One more day in the office, then I fly home on Friday morning. After talking to my other half, the weekend… Continue reading A Few More Words
Today was a long day. I woke a little after 6am, scraped myself out of bed, had a shower, got dressed, and wandered down to the breakfast area in the hotel. I got downstairs a few minutes before 6:30, feeling rather proud that I would be one of the first hotel guests down there, and… Continue reading Just a Few Words Tonight
