I’d like to drop gmail as it’s the last bit of Google I haven’t removed from my life. However, I have a grandfathered free Workspace having set it up in about 2010 when it was Google Apps and cost nothing. Email addresses across multiple domains for free is a big hook I haven’t been able to get off.
Having successfully avoided any references to Doctor Who online today I’m going to settle in and watch the first 60th special. I’m a big fan of the Tennant and Tate 2008 season so very much looking forward to them together again on my screen. 📺
Happy Doctor Who Day! The show hits the 60 year mark today and is the one tv show that I can safely say has been a favourite my whole life. Can’t wait for the three specials and then a new Doctor. 📺
💻 Today is new MacBook Air delivery day at work. Surface laptop was a great unit but I’m excited to be fully back in Apple land.
Quietly indicating two of my favourite things. 🐈📚
Spent my Saturday morning listening to the new Mountain Goats album, Jenny from Thebes, which made for a pretty good morning. 🎵
It’s been a week. A very TGIF sort of week.
It’s well past time for journalists to stop writing “X, formerly Twitter” or some variant in their articles. He sacked the comms team, don’t replace them for free.
If you think people won’t know what X is then perhaps reconsider your lazy decision to use it as a source of quotes or comments.
Had a sunspot cut out of my lower leg on Friday and had the usual instruction of keep it covered for 48hrs and don’t get it wet. Looking forward to a shower tonight that doesn’t involve balancing one leg on the edge of the bathtub and trying not to fall over.
Get your skin checked annually people.
☕ That relieved feeling when you made it to the cafe counter in front of someone who has a 10 coffee order rather than behind them.
Trivia time. Thanks to international journeys we’re a much reduced Team “Peter: The eras tour”.
I always give myself a Christmas present and this watchband is going on the shortlist for this year. 🖖🏻 www.amazon.com/Star-Trek…
I like it when the six monthly fire drill is a “Shelter in Place” exercise rather than an evacuation. I can stay in my office and quietly sip my tea instead of going outside.
Apparently we’re sheltering from the raging storm outside.
Governments in Australia need to stop funding private schools and boost public school funds. If you want to send a child to a private school for “alignment of values or religion” then pay the full cost.
🍸 Lovely afternoon with a long lunch and then cocktails. Walking/rolling home.
On Caturday, this little treasure likes to sit in the old chair on the balcony and watch the birds in between naps. 🐱
The contrast of old and new on the streets of Kyoto.
😎 Clocking off early to get my long weekend started.
You get a pretty decent cardio workout if you decide to walk around the gardens at Versailles. So large and spread out.
Embrace the leg. 🐱
My nighttime beverage more often than not these days is a cup of tea rather than a glass of wine. I quite like this “Sleepy” tea.
When you’ve had a tooth out and still high on painkillers you too will sit and stare at the ceiling. 🐱
Beaches at the end of the day when you get that last flare of the sun are the best.
Went out for dinner last night before seeing a show. We popped back in afterwards to have dessert and a nightcap. I went with the vanilla bean panna cotta with passion fruit and shortbread biscuit as the dessert least likely to need me to loosen my belt.
