Finally giving MarsEdit 4 a try, I used to use this app all the time. The new version seems really at home on the newer macOS versions.

Today has been one of those design days where everything felt rubbish. Hopefully when I return tomorrow there’ll be something in the pile worth developing.

Woo! Finally. The Seattle Seahawks are playing in London this year. I need to get tickets! 🏈 #GoHawks

Went to bed early to read, on feeling tired I turned off the light to go to sleep. While drifting off my mind wondered to a project I’m mulling over. I now have an idea jotted down and am wide awake.

Can’t quite get over the Nottingham Forest win this afternoon! Such a good all round performance, hope we get a good tie in the next round.

I’m really tempted to move my blog away from WordPress, custom theming it is such a pain and I can never find an off the shelf one that does what I want. I wouldn’t know what to use instead though, nothing is quite as connected as WordPress is.

This first week back at work after a good break over Christmas has been really long and hard. I’m sure most people find it difficult to get back into working, but it’s just felt much harder and more draining than previous years.

The New CSS Layout by Rachel Andrew

This was my last book of 2017. I started it at the end of November and kept wanting to try things out so it took me a lot longer to finish than it should’ve. It’s a book I’ll be returning to over and over in the next few months while I keep trying out the new CSS techniques in my work. Looking forward to the more powerful and extensive layout options that are now becoming available to us. The web has started to look very same-y in the last 12-18 months, mainly I believe, due to designers trying to make it easier to build responsive websites. I firmly believe some of the new CSS specs will allow that to change and for designers to start pushing boundaries again.

Great stat from my Dad. Today is the only day in history when every adult was born in the 1900’s and every minor born in the 2000’s.

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us).”

Happy Christmas folks. Hope it’s a day full of joy. Jesus is here!
