Short form notes

Kitty paw Hi-5!

Shortly after we moved to New Zealand our cat went to live with family. A few weeks later she made a break for freedom and went missing for over a month. The guilt we felt was immense, today she was found safe and sound.

It shouldn’t be this hard to draw and format a table of data on a windows machine. How is this a thing.

Weeknotes are not forgotten. The last few weeks have been quite full of life.. Hopefully I can get back on track tonight.


Gutted Shoebox is closing down. Any suggestions on a good place to store images with a sensible content policy? Happy to pay, would prefer to avoid free services.

Super pumped for Avengers Endgame this evening. Couldn’t get to an earlier screening, it’s in the middle of the day in NZ so at work. Now to avoid the Internet all day!

If you decide to emmigrate it’s totally worth paying for the whole container for your stuff. You might think it costs more, but otherwise (like me) it sits on the docks for ages, waiting to be filled, and you burn through cash in AirBnB’s while it still hasn’t left the UK.

You might have noticed since I moved to New Zealand my posts timestamps have been a bit odd. Hopefully this post should show its been fixed. Time zones are hard
