Sorting through a cupboard recently, I stumbled across an iPod Touch that I haven’t seen for many years. It’s a 4th Generation iPod Touch, which were made between 2010-2012. Looking at the photos on it, the first photo is dated 2012, so I’m guessing I got it around then. What’s interesting, though, is turning it […]
It’s become an on-going joke with my work colleagues that I have issues with security at airports. And no one airport has been as bad as Manchester. I’m just back from a family holiday in Germany and we flew out from Manchester and, let’s say, they really excelled themselves this time.
My eldest daughter came back from Tokyo recently and bought me some presents. She knows I love stationary so that was what she got me.
I’ve been using Amazon Prime Music Unlimited for a couple of years now and can genuinely say how rather good it is. If you’re an Amazon Prime user, you get the more basic Prime Music included. However, for all the music you could wish for you need to pay a little more for the Unlimited […]
Back in 2014 I started using a pair of Creative T30 wireless speakers. Considering how small they are, and lack a subwoofer, the sound was always pleasingly good. For the last 2.5 years, they’ve been paired to my work MacBook to great effect. But that’s now come to an end.

Back in 2017, I revealed, after just a few months working and travelling for Automattic, what I carried with me in my backpack. 2 years on, and many more trips, and that content has changed. I don’t carry everything with me at all times and will modify the bag contents based on where I’m travelling […]
When travelling, I do so with a Clairefontaine pencil case. It’s not too big but enough for to carry a selection of useful stationary items. You see, I like my stationary. Nothing ostentatious but just good quality. So, what do I carry?
In the last couple of years I’ve been exploring and learning more about myself – what “makes me tick” or, rather, what makes me unique (as we all are). If you look on this site’s home page, you’ll see a number of these things. Right now it reads… Mildly bipolar, an ambivert, aphantasmic and a […]
