First thoughts on the idea of my employer becoming part of the UK's first "Care Trust" are reasonably favourable - mainly because, viewing things from the provider rather than commissioner side makes things appear far more fragile, and makes privatisation an ever present threat! Worked reasonably hard on combining several ancient systems into one, and went home with a pretty robust headache from poring over lists of tiny figures. Ordered some cheap memory from Jungle. Celebrated a week of relative abstinence with ice cream. Played with metatheme and built the new control-center. This left me with pretty horrible looking desktop settings, and no immediately obvious route to fixing them! Decided not to worry. New control-center is, however, very lovely indeed. Kept a promise I made after breaking my arm today too. After struggling to dress in my crumpled washed-and-left shirts because of my weak and painful limb, I vowed to start ironing things. No-one believed me. Today I finally purchased my first iron in the Tesco sale (£8.99 - a bargain!).



I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
