As an on-going quest to discover more about myself, particularly physical and mental health, I’m going to talk about bradycardia. Bradycardia is having a heart rate below 60 beats per minute (bpm). As I write this, my heart rate is at 56 bpm. My resting heart rate over the last week was 50 bpm. Now, […]
It’s that time ago when the whole of WordPress VIP have their Grand Meetup. This year, we’re in Rotterdam. We stayed at the nhow hotel, which is rather splendid, architecture wise, using the hotel facilities for our meetings, workshops, etc.
Since I was young I, occasionnaly, have an odd thing happen to me. Something will play out in front of me and I’ll immediately get a strange sensation – a sort of “spidey sense” tingling – and an immediate realisation that I’ve seen this exact scene in a dream (despite not having remembered dreaming about […]
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.

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.
I skipped WordCamp Europe last year but didn’t want to miss this one, as it’s coming from Berlin. And, as in Paris back in 2017, I’m here as a volunteer.
We’ve been in our house for about 8 years and, each year for the last few years, we’re attempting to renovate a room. 4 years ago it was the kitchen, 3 years ago it was the top bedroom (aka Laura’s bedroom or, as it is now, the guest bedroom), 2 years ago it was my […]
