This week felt like it lasted forever. Work has seemed never-ending, evenings have been hollow respite where I have no motivation to do anything
We're watching classic Mr Bean from the 90s and Tabitha hasn't stopped laughing her head off since it started. I never liked this show when I was younger but it's hard to argue with its effect on her!
This week has been non-stop but a lot of fun. Starting to get out of my super-busy-focus period, which is always bittersweet.
Charlotte set up some desk space again. Sitting at the dining table became problematic months ago.
Until I read them to Tabitha a year or so ago, I had never read a word of the Narnia chronicles. They immediately became some of my favourite stories. I was obsessed with them until we finished.
We're watching the films now (and Netflix are making them too, apparently!) and they've done a pretty reasonable job with them, but it makes me want to read the books again.
They're some of the most vivid works of fiction I've ever read and, compared with things like Lord of the Rings, remarkably sparing with their exposition considering the payoff.
In my opinion, LEGO have done a really poor job of communicating what this actually is. Maybe I've just conveniently missed the message in everything I've read, but even so, if I've managed to entirely miss it, others probably did too.
Getting to the stage with this site where I have learned so much about GraphQL, Node, and React that it all needs to be ripped out and redone. I can't decide if I'm looking forward to that or not.
I've heard David Walliams described as "this generation's Roald Dahl", which is utterly ludicrous and does a huge disservice to Roald Dahl. But it's nice to occasionally test how hard I can roll my eyes.
I thought this was going to take all day. Nowhere has switches in stock, and I have a board with really good switches that I'm not using
The easiest build I've done so far. Maybe because I had planned it. I knew what layout I was using. I'd counted my switches. All I needed to do was place them, solder them, sort my firmware. But this was a fun build, and I was rewarded for my planning
How is Gravity Falls perfect? There are so few things I wouldn't change at all, but Gravity Falls is one.
Everyone went to bed before 8pm, but Tabitha's tent was still set up in the lounge so I rotated it to face the TV and watched Futurama.
