Brighton Mist

Brighton Mist

You know in Inception where the people in your dreams become aware that someone is there who shouldn't be? I sometimes feel like that when I'm walking around the city; like people are looking at me in a really negative way.


Scrabble

Scrabble

I don't play much Scrabble because Charlotte is way better at it than I am and it's not the most fun to play something repeatedly and lose. Today I played my highest-scoring move, with "favours" on the end of "walking" for 94 points.

Of course I was playing against Tabitha at the time, so instead of a smug celebration, I just made my baby sad.


Lighthouse

Lighthouse

We stopped at the lighthouse on the way to the supermarket earlier. Something about this area is so grey and depressing but it makes me feel really happy.


BastardKB Skeletyl Amoeba Handwire

BastardKB Skeletyl Amoeba Handwire

Never thought I'd be able to do something like this, but once you can connect a wire to something, and you get the theory, it's fairly straightforward to build.


WSK Pain27

WSK Pain27

I've wanted to build one of these for ages but every time I looked it's been out of stock.


Afternoon Tea at The Grand

Afternoon Tea at The Grand

Charlotte won afternoon tea at The Grand on a school raffle. It was for two but we couldn't not bring Tabitha!


Doughnuts

Doughnuts

I took a day off work last week and walked into the city to get some doughnuts from Flour Pot as they only do them once a week.


Fire Club

Fire Club

Met up with a School Dad and sat by a fire at the beach. I had nothing to do with making the fire; I'm useless at that. Was very enjoyable to sit in the freezing cold by a hot fire and chat about stuff.


Rope

Rope

We don't go through the marina that often but I do enjoy watching people working on or around boats. I would like a boat.


Never Not Walking

Never Not Walking

It's becoming something of a routine, this walk into the city on a Saturday, and I don't mind it. This was hard work though. We were all exhausted by the end.


Walking With Lukas

Walking With Lukas

Haven't seen Lukas in ages. I also apparently didn't mention him the last time we did this and now I can't find it (edit: found it!). Anyway, we went walking around Brighton and it was a lot of fun. I tried a new thing with making a video and taking stills. It kinda worked, but it was a lot of effort and I'm not sure if I'll do it a lot more.


First Person Timelapse Proof of Concept

First Person Timelapse Proof of Concept

I've wanted to use the GoPro for something significant for a while and I think I had an idea. Strap it to my chest, walk around taking pictures, edit in my results. Is it watchable? Maybe?


Bento!

Bento!

As soon as I built this case, the first thing I wanted to do was take this picture.

I took the dog for a walk this morning. Very nice sunrise light.


Grumpday

Grumpday

It's been another week of it. My back and hip and knee are getting better so slowly, it's depressing. I basically can't sit down, which is annoying. Made some good things, and had some ideas for some other nice things. And rage-bought a new watch because I'm an idiot. If you're looking for some consultancy work for your website/project strategy, help me finance my poor impulse control.

Jokes I don't have time for freelance.


A Washed-up Buoy

A Washed-up Buoy

We were drawn to the beach for an unobstructed view of this moody sky, and when we got there there was a buoy on the beach.


Guarantees

Guarantees

I can pretty much guarantee that if I make a change to this site, it will make me want to add some content, but the weather will be gross and I can't be bothered to go outside.


The same thing three times

A completely scientific study


The new iPhone is good

The new iPhone is good

I got the iPhone 13 Pro. So far, most noticeable improvements are the screen and the camera. The animation is so smooth it's really starting to feel like the things on the screen are real physical things that you can touch. I don't have much to compare because I only use Apple stuff but I love their screens. Everything looks great on them. The stills from the camera are excellent as well. I feel like it's a noticeable improvement from the 12 Pro, which is the first time I've noticed that.


I did it again

Ah no I spent so long waiting to take some pictures to post that I forgot and now I have to do this like always. Still there's something nice about looking over the last few weeks and remembering that you actually were alive and doing something with your time.
