Woke up feeling ridiculously crappy. Went back to bed and languished. Finally got up and picked through email. Good to hear from an old friend who I've not been in touch with for a very long time. Brightened the day up, and along with medication felt well enough to eat and read a bit. Got bored quickly - knew there was a reason I went to work each day. Sorted out these news pages a bit, and tidied the site in general. Have been slacking on the daylog lately because little of interest has happened. First batch of Open University materials for next year arrives - mixed feelings of vague horror and excitement. Actually can't wait to get started.

Typically felt crappy all weekend and improved as Sunday wore on. Released another gnome-pkgview, and messed up importing it into GNOME CVS. Still, its there now - just need to find the time and courage to announce it to the translators. Almost completed Christmas Shopping by proxy. Tried to prebook 'Two Towers' tickets, but the Odeon site won't render in Mozilla, and when tested in other browsers is just plain broken. Dropped off some typing work later, and was given nice cold cure involving whisky, honey and lemon. Slept well.

I've dreaded today for a long time - office Christmas decorations day. Put off 'helping out' as long as possible, then just stood around looking pained. Managed to deflect most efforts away from my area of the room. One or two people felt it their duty to attempt to make me 'feel festive'. Left them in no doubt that their efforts were in vain. Frustrating.

Had a deeply frustrating day for no reason in particular, so sped off to Bristol post-work. Brisk walk across freezing city centre to record store. Coffee, and a wander up Whiteladies Road before heading back. A long time since I've done that. Pleasant evening.



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.
