Where to begin. Or, where to pick up. Time is precious and this has always been the project I’ve dabbled at using the time that’s fallen between the cracks of Important Things. I kind of disappeared for a while though. I changed jobs and the way I had structured my time previous to that completely [...]

Forgot to put a title on this post

Thought I should put up some kind of notification along the lines of “we will resume normal service as soon as possible as we can” even though it’s a bit like me chopping down a tree in the forest, popping in some earplugs, getting out of the way and letting it fall. I will get [...]


Thanks, everyone, for the heads-up on the almost complete inoperability of this blog. I recently upgraded WordPress and it seems to be completely stuffed. So that’s great, isn’t it… 11.49 am …aaaaand we’re back

Ask Jeeves

I just found out from Bruce’s blog that Stephen Fry has started a blog. At first, I was a bit dubious. I’d never really come across any actual famous people’s blogs before and I wasn’t convinced it was him until I scrolled down and saw that he’d posted a picture of himself and placed his [...]
