New Glasses

Handed my glasses in to get the lenses changed. An afternoon without my glasses, hopefully no headaches.

Brilliant Christmas/anniversary/birthday present from Kate now up on the wall at work.

Levitating Speaker

If they can get the licensing from Disney to make this look like the Death Star they could be onto a winner!

Blue Screen Of Death?

So it would appear that "The blue screen of death" is now "the blue screen of sad". #Windows8.1

Laptop Replacement

Replaced my 5 year old laptop with a Quantum View Windows 8.1 tablet. Some configuration that I still need to figure out but overall very pleased with it so far.


Really enjoying Jordan Reyen's album, Passenger. http://jordanreyne.bandcamp.com/album/passenger

Early Mornings

Why is it so hard to wake kids up for school during the week yet they wake up at 6:30 on the weekend?

Towns For Baby Boomers

  Today I picked up Steve, who used to be my boss, from Heathrow and drove him up to Stevenage. It was good to catch up. Even when we worked together he wouldn't get over here more than a couple of times a year.

  Although I'd been to the office in Stevenage I'd not been to the town center itself. This picture sums up the bits we saw. Like many towns around London Stevenage center was thrown up in the 60's. It's a horrible looking place constructed mainly of concrete.

 I did drive around for a while looking for a pub to eat at but eventually just ate in the town center. Not exactly silver service.

  I took the scenic route home and dropped in on my brother and his family, they were pleasantly surprised. All in all it's been a good weekend.


Full Day

I did actually make it to the gym today but I think my efforts were undone by how much I've had to eat. When I woke up this morning the shared bathroom was already in use, so I went back to sleep.

When I woke up for the second time this morning the washing machine was going, with the poor water pressure in this place that meant I'd have to wait if I wanted to have a shower. Decided to go to the gym. I tried the cross trainer today and have to say it's not as comfortable for me as the tread mill.

Spent the day in Guildford. It's been a reasonable day considering it's the middle of winter. Sat in a few different pubs nursing a pint of cola and reading my Kindle.

All in all a pretty laid back day.
