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 …

About the old me

Hey. My old blog, Waves, is gone. Here are the old “About Me” pages.

They are no longer relevant to me, my mission or my desires.

Friday update 29/8/14

So ready for Flipper to appear now. I just can’t wait to meet the little guy/gal – and I can’t wait for Jane to be able to rest properly again. It’s not that she’s been miserable or grumpy because of the baby cramping her style – I just feel it’s …

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 …

Friday update 27/6/14

Jane and Flipper are fine – they are both getting quite big now, scary to think that they are only eleven weeks away! We went to Paulton’s Park on Saturday for Ethan’s birthday treat – was great fun but a little bit too sunny maybe – I felt like I …

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 …

How to play Minecraft – an update

So, you may or may not have read this post, in which I recount my experiences of Lewis playing Minecraft. Things have changed now, almost wholesale. He no longer pretends to play on Survival while actually playing Creative. As he tends to play alongside Ethan nowadays, they play together on …

Friday update 13/6/14

E3 has been and gone, and one of the only new things that I was interested in was the Master Chief Collection. The other things being Halo 5 (which there were not many details of, because it is so far away from release), and the Dark Souls 2 DLC (which …
