Was half way through a post when the Mac seized up. Hopefully the laptop will behave a bit better.

We had a birthday party for him on Thursday at a local sports centre. It was a football party and most of the kids joined in. It was a little weird where two of the kids wouldn’t because they don’t like football. I don’t get it myself in that why can’t you do the football thing for 20 minutes? It just goes to show that people are weird, even when they’re kids.

Birthday proper today. Gave him a kite from the Kite Shop. It’s an Orca and is good in relatively little wind. However there wasn’t quite enough on the beach today so we gave up after about 20 minutes.

Lots of cool presents.

I’m a bit skint at the moment, waiting for my other business to start paying and the job pays about 20% less that I was earning 2 1/2 years ago at the peak of the boom. Ah well, all the more reason to put my efforts into my other business.


I’ve decided to do another draft of Archive Fragments, play around with the formatting so it’s clearer what is happening in what time period. Also revise it some. I will start trying to tout it round in the next few weeks. The way to get published to be persistent. I have just been reading a book where the writer was rejected over a hundred times before making it into print. He didn’t bother counting the “failures”, just kept on asking the next guy. This is how you succeed.

Software projects

Done nothing for a while on my own projects. Suspect this is because I spend all day designing and writing software and I can’t face it later. Better payoff in other business anyway.
