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 ...

The workplace of the future

Talking Points Memo is a political blog/commentary/news site from the US that I’ve read for years now, and it’s top notch. It’s leftish, but a real reportage site, better than most mainstream news, and really fair. It was started by one guy, but now has 9 or 10 staff in a few locations. They have ...

Smart new living in an old way

The whole family went to Flemington today, for I think the third time, to the Paddy’s Food Markets. Until recently, it was something I’d never done before, but already it seems like such a smart thing, that is easy, new, but old at the same time. For most people, food is something you get from ...

A quickly noticed blog record

Coming into this too late as usual, but on my Dashboard screen in WordPress, I believe I just worked out that this is my 200th post this year, which amounts to almost a doubling of the size of my overall blog this year alone 🙂 Hooray for progress! When this year started, I wanted to ...

Mid week (in)action

Is not usually very much. It’s actually amazing just how tired I can feel by mid week, and see that tiredness echoed in the rest of the family. It’s probably not the best lifestyle — of course we go to bed too late, but everything in our circumstance seems to lead to that. And blogging ...

Feeling muddled

I’m not even going to write it here this time. All in a muddle, annoyed, fed up and searching for a change that I don’t even know how to enact. Only time will tell what I can actually do here. Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

More pics in my posts

Note to self: Have got to put more pics into my posts. It looks like WordPress has got its act together pic upload wise, so it really is easy! And with a new theme that I like, I will get more plugins in there too. And I don’t believe big sites care now if you ...

Surprise gifts

A few days ago I got an email from a company I’d spoken to a CeBIT the week earlier. I’d gone to the CeBIT show for a few hours to look at new stuff and recommend things to my current employers (I’ve gone to it the previous two years as well for previous jobs). It’s ...

Funny things

Well, not always so funny, I guess. It’s amazing how easy it is to get through the week, whether you like your job or not. I suspect this is how so many people just put up with things — they get enough out of the evenings and weekends to keep themselves going. But I’m not ...

How do I do it?

I’m starting to wonder if I really have a clue anymore. How do I get up quite early, commute quite a distance, work a full day on the day job, commute some more, spend time with my kids, spend time with my wife, eat (and cook most of the time), then have some time to ...
