Self-isolation, quarantine, whatever this limbo is; week seven

Time is strange at the moment. It goes fast, but feels slow. Days take ages, but are over before you know it. This strange coronavirus limbo is warping things. It’s so quiet outside, it’s unreal. Eerie. Spooky. It feels like the entire world has been paused. I didn’t get a …

Self-isolation, week four

It reminds me of when I was unemployed, having all this free time. But it’s weird – instead of bumming around playing videogames all day and moderating meaningless internet forums, this time I am spending my time improving my situation. I asked Twitter when the lockdown first started if this …

The Lewis becoming an adult thing

This is going to be hard to write without sounding jaded, or bitter, but I’m going to try. My nephew, Lewis, turned 18 recently. He’s Jane’s sister’s first-born, and I’ve known him all his life. I don’t know where to start with how I feel about my perspective on all …

Friday update 22/8/14

It’s been yet another quick week. Little baby Stewart is due in three weeks if you can believe that – we’re hoping that he or she comes a bit sooner than that because now is an ideal time, what with Claire and the kids being away. It would just be …

Musings

I’m just sitting here on a sunny Saturday afternoon, at the PC with a green tea and a couple of biscuits, editing the next series of Sonic games (Sonic 2, for those of you who care), thinking to myself that I’ve not really written anything that wasn’t a Friday update …

Bi-yearly update 2014

Hey, this is going to be an epic update, a half-year special so to speak. I’m going to go back and take a look at the targets I made at the start of the year and see how I’m doing with them. With regards to the Fitness Targets – I’ve …
