Daytripping again

Took a little road trip today with the family… an easy one up the northern freeway to Maitland in the lower Hunter. Thinking of moving there. It’s a long story, but as I mentioned recently we have to be out of our current house by the end of September, and we’ve wanted to get out ...

All these things at once

Business moves are coming along quite nicely, which ties into moving house because we have to, which ties into changing everything. And THAT is good. On the lighter side, I’ve finally been able to hear what Warren Ellis sounds like — an audio interview with him here about his novel “Crooked Little Vein”. Quite English ...

Staying Positive

Yes, I’m listening to The Hold Steady quite a lot recently (hence the title). And there’s a lot of really depressing crap I could write about here, I really couldn’t be bothered to smother it all over my blog as well. I think I have to make a change again. The last change was definitely ...

This is all we need

Shouldn’t be surprised at all really, but now we’ve been given a notice of eviction, and we have to leave our current house in 30 days. We were kind of conned into this — we’ve been here nearly a year now, and just a few months after we moved in on what was supposedly a ...

Mindspace

Years ago, I used to spend a lot of time thinking and planning, and even dreaming. In a lot of ways I knew this was “cart before the horse” stuff, spending more time dreaming and not enough doing, but now I’ve had a different perspective. I think it was and is much healthier to be ...

Woeful week

Well I suppose it wasn’t that bad, but it was woeful enough. Went back to work, still didn’t feel right, as the week went on it only got worse. Eventually gave up and was able to go home at Thursday lunchtime — lost the rest of that day but then worked from home on Friday. ...

Slow day with one highlight

Stayed home sick again today, and actually went to the doctors in the morning. Damn it was cold, even then, and I could feel every degree drop. Apparently I have bronchitis and a throat infection, which explains a lot, especially the coughing. So I get to stay home for at least the next two days, ...

Carousel jumping book choices

Am quite tired right now … it’s that usual thing about getting to the last weeknight and really starting to feel it. It’s quite usual for Thursday nigt but it doesn’t last. Picked up some new books today. Finally got myself one of Scott Westerfeld’s YA books — been curious as to how they read, ...

Keeping the inspiration going

I haven’t felt very inspired recently. About most things. There’s a reason I write about family here most of the time — it’s easily the best thing for me right now. Profesionally … well, less said about that the better. I try to remind myself it isn’t that important, but when you spend so much ...

More thinking about workplaces

I’ve started thinking again that shift work, or more precisely evening shifts, would probably appeal to me again. I did them over a couple of jobs for a few years when I was younger, including some of my time at Fairfax, and generally I found it OK. I wouldn’t do graveyard shift stuff, but 2-10 ...
