I recently watched this video of popular YouTube polymath Tom Scott. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYj3DnI81AQ&list=WL&index=16 A fascinating video regardless - of course we're never going to be able to predict the future word-for-word or tech-for-tech, and I cannot really add my opinion about all those accurate guesses about phones. As Tom mentions, some parts of the future are … Continue reading The Death of the Blog?
A December to Forget
I'm not the sort to do monthly writing roundups on the blog - mainly because there's never much to say - but it's been a while and I've seemed quiet. I guess the goal to blog more can be left on the to-do list. However, and despite the silence, I have been making a little … Continue reading A December to Forget
And +1 Makes Five
As I alluded to in my previous post (however short compared to my usual sporadic ramblings here), I didn't manage to post before I gave birth. In fact, I didn't manage to do a whole host of things because I, technically, started latent labour at 38 weeks and 5 days, eventually giving birth at our … Continue reading And +1 Makes Five
I don't mind not blogging much, but when I have a half-written post that I ought to have finished a month ago, it is rather annoying. So here's my amendment of a delayed post and a look back on these past couple of months. (If you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen I shared … Continue reading Winter Reflections
Three Very Different Christmases
With the UK government imposing further restrictions and tiers on the UK (which I do think are necessary), Christmas this year looks different for a lot of people. Amusingly enough, I don't fall into that category - our Christmas was already constrained by childcare bubbles and so the Christmas day travel we were planning to … Continue reading Three Very Different Christmases
One Day at a Time.
I used to think blogging was about writing extensive posts filled with long details or essays of pensive arguments – I was a dedicated uni student for four years, after all – and this was one of the things that always made me take my time with each post or leave me with many posts … Continue reading One Day at a Time.
Silence – But Not By My Fault
My fair greetings to the world! What an absence it has been and I certainly plan to explain all that – but as per the title I stand that it was not my fault. I had a laptop failure a few months ago – I am currently taking this down on The Husband’s, which in … Continue reading Silence – But Not By My Fault
My friend Craig Hallam invited me to guestpost on his blog in, oh, July it must have been, and with everything that went on for me in the months of July and August - my anniversary and graduation, The Lincoln Asylum and Reading Swing Exchange - then working a bunch of overtime towards the end … Continue reading Guestposting Away
Remembering the Lost
Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day and I want to respect that here, knowing so many people who've suffered the hardship and pain and indescribable nature of losing a child, however far into gestation, not least my precious Godson's siblings. From my Instagram: I don't pretend to have any knowledge beyond the facts … Continue reading Remembering the Lost
New House, New Place
There's something to be said about keeping to a blogging schedule. I deeply admire people who are able to do it. As for me...once again, I seem to be falling behind any schedule I endeavoured to create. Never fear, though, since it doesn't mean I'm not writing! I have lots of things going through my … Continue reading New House, New Place
