Discovered this evening that I couldn’t find the key to my bike lock, which is currently locked to two bikes. I’ve now sorted through 2 big boxes of stuff and two drawers of stuff, thrown out a lot of crap and organised everything more logically. Sometimes misplacing things has a big effect on stuff.
The bike locks keys? Well they were in a drawer completely unrelated to anything I sorted. 🤦🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️ ∞
Ran out of hay fever tablets a few days ago and thought I’d see how I would be without buying some more. Turns out not so good if this evening is anything to go by, pollen is on an all out offensive. Itchy eyes, itchy nose and all the sneezes. ∞
It’s been a long week. I’m getting too old to be working on my feet for 40 hours and a further 15 building websites. Completely pooped and my body aches. 😴 ∞
Slowly moving all my sites over to Sass as I get to them. Contracting to a local studio has really helped me to learn a load of new things that I should’ve learned a while ago. ∞
I hope it presents both some technical aspects of the IndieWeb but more so introduces how the IndieWeb experience is personal and is shaped by each individual.
This post from Eddie Hinkle was what prompted me to explore implmenting Post Kinds on my blog. This is the first official like from my own site to another using Indie Web technologies, it seemed fitting that I should give it a try with the post that prompted playing around with the technology. ∞
Spending my Friday evening playing around with my blog and trying out an implementation of Post Kinds. One thing that has always stopped me previously has been that I always find Indiew Web bits a bit clunky looking, so I’m trying to integrate it as stylishly as I can in my custom theme. ∞
In this fictionalized treatment of a real case, Bucky Bleichert and Lee Blanchard, both L.A. cops obsessed with the Black Dahlia, journey through the seamy underside of Hollywood to the core of the dead girl’s twisted life.

Finished the day with the news that a family holiday has been booked for September. Looking forward to having a week away, I’ll be leaving my MacBook at home that’s for sure. ∞
Is it weird that despite it being so hot – and set to continue being so – that I miss wearing trousers. Must be a good month since I last wore any. ∞
No you were the one getting increasingly annoyed and perplexed that a simple CSS rule wasn’t working only to discover that CodeKit wasn’t running. ∞
Thanks to the England game going to extra time my 26 day streak of 10,000+ steps a day ends here. ∞
Man alive that was stressful! Get in England. #worldcup ⚽️ ∞
This hot weather we’re getting in the UK at the moment is causing havoc with Touch ID. I’ve never had it fail on me so often. ∞
This is a very interesting article about the influence of Facebook and Google has over society and the unbalanced discourse that has been growing over recent years. It’s been a recurring concern of mine about Micro.blog and the many calls I’ve seen on there for diversity. They have rarely, if ever, included calls for people who take a more conservative stance. Balance is something that is needed if the service is to avoid the pitfalls that created the echo chambers we find on Twitter and Facebook now. ∞
Very enjoyable Friday afternoon designing webpages for the studio I’m working for a day a week. Genuinely really enjoying being able to stretch myself on new types of projects and working in new ways. ∞
Whilst it’s been enjoyable having the World Cup on a lot at the moment, the Championship fixtures were announced today. Forest kick off the season to the team my best mate supports, Bristol City. Great way to start the season.

This week has been the first one for years that I’ve spent more time doing design work than I have working as a barista. It’s been so enjoyable, not to mention exhausting, and at times frustrating but here’s to some more weeks like this in the future. ∞
Productive day working on client projects, managed to solve a problem that had been driving me mad and holding up. Always nice when that happens. Finished up my day with dinner at Wagamama’s for a friend who is moving to Spain and then a nice walk to get my 10k steps done. ∞
Flexible Typesetting from A Book Apart looks like and interesting read, and a great complement to THE NEW CSS LAYOUT which I highly recommend. ∞
Been working with a local web design studio the last couple of weeks, they use Sketch so I’ve finally been forced to use it. Giving it a go with one of my freelance clients now, really enjoying it so far. ∞
