One day you will create a blog, you’ll probably never write on it again!
One of my favourite things is eating cakes, come on who doesn’t. So this is a nice one to get started. Lovely lemon cupcakes.
So after many months of waiting I am finally the owner of an iPad. Not just any iPad a lovely 64gb iPad 2. I’ve not had it very long, but so far it is awesome!
So last weekend Phil and I went to the Cairngorms for a spot of snowboarding. Conditions were quite gusty, with reported winds of 60 mph at the top. While there I made this short video.
It’s been a while since I posted anything, generally I have nothing to say. But I thought I’d just mentioned that it seems to be snowing, I’m sure you might have noticed, it seems to be getting mentioned quite often.
Luckily I live near a main bus route so there is plenty of traffic to keep the snow down so I can easily get my car out of the street, and because of where I work I don’t need to contend with any difficult roads. But why is it that people can’t drive properly. Yes I agree that it’s a little slippy, but you will only lose traction if you accelerate too hard, break too hard or try to change direction too quickly. All people need to do is pay attention to the road ahead, drive at a sensible pace and leave a nice gap to the car ahead. Simple, nothing too it, now please will you stop driving like a dick.
So it’s been quite a while since I last wrote here. I’m not going to lie to you, I’m full of ideas (not necessarily good though), but am not actually that keen to do anything about them. I like the idea of having a blog, somewhere deep inside I thinks it’s cool that I might actually write something that somebody else might find interesting. The problem with such a notion is that you actually have to come up with regular content and write it in an engaging style, something which I can’t bring myself to do. Another problem is that to have a really popular blog it needs some kind of theme. It isn’t good enough to just keep pushing out content, there needs to be something that holds it all together, a coherent theme that runs through all the entries.
So over a year ago I decided that my blog was getting a bit full of old posts and I wanted a clean slate. I thought that some of my posts were a but crappy and I figured that I could start again writing high quality posts, the problem is that I’ve barely written anything since. I’ve therefore decided to import my old posts back into this blog. I’ve not made any changes, they are just as they were originally published, complete with suspect spellings and grammar.
Hi, it’s been a while. I’ll keep it simple and get down to business. Does anyone actually still read this?
- Read more (both fact and fiction)
- Work harder, party harder
- Drink more water
- Run more
- Cycle more
- Fight the credit crunch
- Do more of what I want, rather than what I should
- Stop putting things off
- Write more code
