Monday Morning, 9am

The clock has just ticked around to 9am. I’m sitting in the heart of Heathrow Airport in London, a few yards away from one of the departures boards. My flight is steadily moving up the board - with a note that the gate will be shown in about three quarters of an hour. As is …

Autumn Arrives

It's mid-morning on Monday and I'm taking a break from the mayhem for a few minutes. The day began in somewhat chaotic fashion, due to my other half picking up a bug over the weekend and calling in to work sick. We somehow managed to explode the children out of bed, and send them on …

A Case of the Mondays

I'm back drinking coffee again. Or at least, I am this morning. I had a cup yesterday too. Before you roll your eyes, and say "I knew you wouldn't last", it's been over a month. I'm not returning to four or five cups a day, because that's ridiculous (and was ridiculous). Maybe just a cup now and again, because I like coffee.

Back to Work

After the adventure in Germany last week, it was back to earth with a bump today - emptying the dishwasher, making breakfasts and lunches, washing my bike, filling it's tyres with air, and cycling to the office. Quite a contrast from living in a hotel within walking distance of the office.I spent the greater part …

Bank Holiday Monday

Today is a bank holiday in the UK. I've been up since 8am, and haven't really got anything done. Sure, I fed the animals, and let the chicken out (we're looking after it for the local infant school), but other than that - nothing of consequence.I re-installed the old desktop computer with Ubuntu Linux. I've …

Why are Mondays so Awful

I woke at 5:30am this morning. I’m not entirely sure how or why. I was suddenly wide awake, checking the radio alarm clock, reading email, and wondering about getting up. I didn’t. Somehow my body told my brain “don’t be so stupid”, and I woke again as the local radio station flooded the bedroom with …

Bank Holiday Monday

I got up a little over an hour ago. After heading to the shower, brushing my teeth, and getting dressed, I wandered into the lounge and discovered the younger children already camped out on the sofa, topping up on cartoons. I remember doing the same when I was their age - some things never change.While …

Monday Morning

I've been head down writing programming since the moment I walked into the office this morning - well, since I filed my time-sheet for last week to keep the project manager off my back, and paid a huge chunk of money off my credit card to keep the bank off my back.I'm starting programming on …
