I like working at home. I get so much done and I also have more customised resources than work. My office space is finally tidy:

It’s funny how things change as they age. Some things get better (they say leather jackets, car engines, etc.). And some get worse (car, notebooks, etc.). What I can say is that my new lawn will never look like this ever again:

I realised Friday that it’s been so long since I’ve been properly outside. That sounds like someone who’s been stuck in prison for a while. Well, that’s kind of what it’s felt like I guess. I just feel that I haven’t had good amounts of fresh air for quite a while. As I write this [...]

A long day at work. I got home and decided to cook some lamb. Stupidly, I realised I’d left the BBQ on and so ran down a complete large gas cylinder (doh). No problem. Le Creuset comes the rescue (great pans, bit of a pain to clean). Finished dinner and sitting in the garden enjoying [...]

Breakthrough. Finally this week I managed to get the telephone number from the old house to the new one. Now you’d think that moving less than half a mile that would be a really simple task. Sadly, instead it’s taken nearly 4 months to do so – mainly due to having to move service supplier [...]

Today was the first time I had my office at home in a reasonable shape. Blinds are still on order, but otherwise I think I’m pretty much done with things. Over the past few weeks I’ve realised that Muji appeals to my (minor) OCD issue with things having to match. For example, if I have [...]

As I sit here on Sunday morning at 10AM, it feels like the first time for a few weeks that things have been under control. The house move went fairly well, save for a few companies making things difficult (I am still without broadband, but thanks to “3″ have an interim solution). Rest assured plenty [...]

Finally finished as much as I can do in terms of tearing down stuff in the house. Worst task of all was removing the washing machine (I didn’t want to leave it as I spent a fortune on it a few years ago and they really don’t make them like they used to). Actually removing [...]

I’ve come to the conclusion that buying a house is (relative to selling) easy, whilst selling a house is a complete pain. I spent 2hrs yesterday with the people buying the current house going through everything and explaining to them the procedure. Then several hours on the ‘phone this morning chasing up things and pulling [...]

A new term I thought of this morning to define things that I see and need to blog about, specifically things that are irritating/funny. Well, today’s trip involves going to Cambridge rail station, then sitting on a train into London, so I’m absolutely sure there will be ample fodder… Upper Crust, Cambridge StationA particular ‘favourite’ [...]
