Thoughts and other Miscellany


(inspired by Cassie’s posts at Wholefully)

(Writing this very late on Sunday night)

Listening to Simon & Garfunkel on Spotify. Just showed The Book Accumulator how Spotify works. #millennialchildtechsupport

Obsessively checking the progress of BA2965 from Glasgow to London Gatwick – after a couple of days visiting The Hedge Fund Slave’s family, Bookmark and I flew south for a quiet weekend with the Book Accumulator near Gatwick while THFS played bridge in Glasgow, with the plan that I would swing by Gatwick to pick him up and drive home. That plan was somewhat squashed by the serious delay to his flight – had it been delayed another 20 mins the pilots would have run out of flying time for the day and the flight would have been grounded overnight. But it’s taken off and is now over Birmingham.

Wearing my beloved Jeans West jeans (size 11, indigo wash, long leg, boot-cut: the same order I’ve been making there for 6 years), a turquoisey-green top from Target Australia which I’ve washed so much that it’s now really pilled and actually a bit small but I love it, and my sister’s school hoodie which I may have just nicked from her bedroom (sorry Mini-Me). And my super-cool glasses with black exterior and orange on the inside . I took them off to see what brand they are, so I could share my street cred with you – turns out that they’re Specsavers’ own brand.


  • A Gentleman in Moscow, which is by Amor Towles who wrote Rules of Civility, which I loved a few years ago. So far, so good.
  • The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared, a re-read, in an effort to get out of my reading funk (earlier review here)

Celebrating a New Job which starts on Tuesday! I got it a few weeks ago, I’m just rubbish at keeping this blog updated. I’ll be working in finance for a cricket club, marrying up my cricket passion with my accountancy experience, and hopefully finding a little more time for life around all the work.

Cycling sporadically. We cycled at Centerparcs, I have practised my cycle commute to my New Job, I’ve done a few cycles in the last couple of months. I’m hoping New Job proves the catalyst to a slightly healthier lifestyle.

Eating all of the ice cream in my father’s freezer (see the plane delay issue above). I am trying to cut down / out refined sugar, particularly since I have guttate psoriasis and there isn’t much science behind the triggers for psoriasis, but anecdotal evidence is that sugar doesn’t help. So the ice cream is extremely self-defeating. Tomorrow is Monday, always the best day to change eating habits.

Looking forward to so much! New Job, my birthday, a long weekend in Andorra, 10 days in Sydney, Advent, Christmas… I love November.
