WordPress does a nice annual report for Jetpack-connected blogs. The logorrhoea.net annual report is kind of interesting, although, to be brutually honest, much more interesting for me than for you. In 2013, there were 307 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 491 posts. The busiest day of the year was June 2nd with 42 […]
Did a bit of old school shopping today, as I went to Reading town centre while P took A to work with her. It started off well enough as the shops were quiet and it was quite pleasant to be able around taking my time over the shopping without the crowds. To be honest, part […]
I’m fortunate enough (actually, when you think about it, it’s not down to fortune) that I haven’t yet seen the awful meme doing the rounds on Facebook that Chuck Wendig refers to in Spanking Your Children Is Hitting Your Children. What he says is spot on. Every. Single. Word. What I know is this: you spank […]
This is the song I’ve been trying to learn on the ukulele that I mentioned yesterday. I’ve been driving A crazy singing it. To be fair, I’m far from polished at the song right now so it’s probably quite painful to listen to my version.
Tiger’s breath absolutely reeked last night. It was so bad that A actually requested we remove him from her bed. This morning, he was in his basket at the top of the house when I checked on him again. No sign of any improvement – on the contrary, he smelt worse and he was licking […]
My abiding memory of today, Boxing Day, is being kicked fair and square in the knackers by A. To be fair, it was entirely my own fault. I had done something or other to wind A up – in a nice, Dad way – and somehow we agreed that my punishment would be for her […]
Merry Christmas! I’m doing my darnedest to stay connected today – by which I mean connected to the people in the same house as me and not to the internet – so that’ll do for today.
Busy old day today, making mince pies and biscuits with A to leave out for Santa, the reindeer and elves, and then doing what prep I could for tomorrow. Yes, it’s ‘just’ another roast dinner but there’s more elements to it than usual – what with accommodating various requests so it’s more akin to cooking […]
Considering the horrific wind and rain currently battering Britain, it seems worth linking to the earth wind map today. Here’s how it’s looking at the time of writing this post, but it’s worth clicking through to see the real time animations.
Went for a test drive of the BMW i3 today and surprised myself at how much I liked it. The i3, in case you’re not familiar with it, is BMW’s new all-electric car. I test drove the all-electric Toyota Prius last year and kind of liked it but more in the sense of liking the […]
