Not counting down the days at all

3.75 by my latest reckoning before I get to run away for Christmas. I’ve suspect we are going to be sort of busy, despite my best efforts to hide away for a week or so. Ah well. Will still try to use some of my time fruitfully, going to order myself at gunpoint to do a bit of writing. Try for an hour a day. Something like that anyways. Got this sitcom idea I want to do some work on, have some groundwork done, need to expand that more, try and get some of a first episode written and fleshed out. Have quite a bit of it in my head, need to get it down on paper and make it more complete.

Somewhat Depressing

was getting on the same bus I normally do into work today, only to find it utterly empty. Everyone else is on holiday already except me. Not fair 🙁

Lazy weekend, apart from getting up early on Saturday to finish my christmas shopping. It is all done. Finito. Good 🙂

New Look here

I have been promising myself for ages I would get this place looking slightly different, and here it is. I like it, but what do you think? Let me know if you have an opinion.

Christmas is all but sorted now, just mrsfb to sort out, and I am well on the way with that. This time last week I had barely done anything, so I get to feel slightly smug for a little bit. At least as long as it takes for Amazon to announce they have fucked up my order anyway.

Spent yesterday on an XML course, which was dull but somewhat worthy. Know I am going to end up writing a fair old bit of it. Ra ra.

Very Positive

Can’t explain it, but am just feeling a little more focused and positive this week. Seem to be getting my shit together, getting something approaching organised. It is a nice feeling. Ultra-busy at work, but just getting my head down and getting on with stuff. Got the christmas tree up (might take a pic of that tonight), starting to get pressies sorted, and roughly know what we are up to over Christmas. Good.

In other news, may have a trendy new 3g phone soon (free upgrade, not shelling out money, which is ideal). Don’t know how much I will get to use the video stuff, but it does have a decent camera, so hopefully this will let me get a few more pics into here. There is a mobile blogger service in the states, which would allow me to post pics and text directly, but they haven’t released it yet over here, which is barking, as we use mobiles and they don’t really understand them in the states. Not to the same extent as we europeans, where they have pervaded into daily life much more. There are many reasons for this, not least the difficulty in providing full coverage across a country the size of the states. We’re just into it much more, text in particular, but even video has taken off a lot quicker here.
