I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Final­ly sort­ing my road bike out, cleaned and oiled up. Time to start using her as my dai­ly exer­cise time and chance to get out the flat.

‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are look­ing for Jesus the Nazarene, who was cru­ci­fied. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.

Mark‬ ‭16:6‬

Work has start­ed a steps chal­lenge, made me actu­al­ly get out the house and be active. Took this at the mid point of my walk.

Been play­ing around with the iPad and my old Apple Track­pad. It’s kin­da cool, makes we want to get the Mag­ic Track­pad 2 so I can tru­ly nav­i­gate iPa­dOS while it’s con­nect­ed to my big screen. I also hope that iPa­dOS 14 brings bet­ter exter­nal dis­play sup­port.

Clapped for the NHS at 8. For the doc­tors, nurs­es, para­medics, coun­sel­lors, and car­ers. Out­side of CV-19 I’ve nev­er been more thank­ful for our health sys­tem and the work that they do than I am right now.

Fun evening doing a quiz with the team from work via video con­fer­enc­ing. Worked real­ly well, had a lot of laughs. I find Wednes­day to be the hard­est of the week for some rea­son, so this was good med­i­cine.

I real­ly wish Do Not Dis­turb in my Mac could be auto­mat­i­cal­ly turned on when I have a meet­ing. Seems like a crazy omis­sion. I have dis­cov­ered that Option-Click on the noti­fi­ca­tions icon in the menu bar is a short­cut to turn it on and off.

Ven­tured out­side for the first time in a week today. It’s a real­ly strange atmos­phere, hit­ting me that peo­ple seem to be final­ly tak­ing the virus seri­ous­ly. I’m fed up of being on my own though, some in per­son human com­pa­ny is need­ed.

One perk of this whole lock­down sit­u­a­tion: I’m final­ly sort­ing some of the stuff I’ve want­ed to sort for the last 6 months 😂

I keep find­ing myself look­ing at the refur­bished 2018 iPad Pro on Apple’s web­site. The price drop makes it incred­i­bly tempt­ing, as does the new mouse/trackpad sup­port. I can see it becom­ing way more valu­able now, espe­cial­ly for the Affin­i­ty apps…
