A while

There are those friends you don't see for a while. You're all busy; it's fine. You talk occasionally, and it's all good. But when you get to hang out it's like you see each other all the time and nothing's changed since you first met. Those friends are so, so good to see.

We wrapped up and went for a walk as the sun was setting, and it was very good.

This tree

I've seen this tree at least a thousand times, but today it looks different. Light hit it just right, and it caught my eye.

I think the new iPad Pro might be my favourite computer ever. Previous holders of this accolade have been the MacBook Air, iPhone 3G, iPhone X, and the 2017 MacBook Pro.

The iPad has always been my Best Computer For People Who Don't Do Computers, but the 2018 iPad Pro is just my favourite. Beautiful screen, new Apple Pencil is amazing and doesn't have that stupid dorky charging, new keyboard is nice and clicky and has two viewing angles, and the OS is great, and always improving, and it has USB type-C.

If you're a USB type-C convert like I am, then you will know that anything that lacks USB type-C is a completely pointless waste of your time.

A good feeling

I'd wager that one unexpected message from someone who means a lot to you is worth more than all the cold, anonymous social media interaction the internet could fling your way.

My leg hurts. I fell on the ice and I think I've hurt my ankle, but I've been ignoring that and trying to carry on as normal, which I shouldn't have done.

Today we walked to the marina because I wanted to close my activity rings in the easiest way possible, and the sea was super rough. I also wanted to get some photos of the waves crashing from a different perspective. I like the way it looks, actually, but flying in those winds was pretty nervewracking thankyouverymuch.

My leg hurts.
