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.

Any­one know of a mouse that can be paired with both a Mac and an iPad? I’m in need of a new mouse, my wrist is begin­ning to suf­fer after years of using a Mag­ic Mouse and I want one that works with both my Mac for work and iPad for per­son­al stuff. I’ve my eye on the MX3 but I can’t tell if it can pair with both devices…

Look­ing to sim­pli­fy all my web­sites. Since I’m no longer free­lanc­ing and don’t need a port­fo­lio online at the moment, I’m think­ing to move away to some­thing lighter than Word­Press. Trou­ble is I don’t know what. I don’t want to main­tain every­thing oth­er than the design and want to reduce costs.

Start­ed play­ing around with Notion a bit today. I’ve heard so many peo­ple talk­ing about it I fig­ured it was time to give it a go. Not quite sure where it fits yet. Ini­tial­ly I’ve set up a Watch List using one of their exist­ing tem­plates and a Week­ly Review tem­plate to try and get in the habit of that.

I’m try­ing to find some exer­cise that I can do eas­i­ly and slow­ly build up in to a habit. It occurred to me last night I could prob­a­bly find some free Pilates videos on YouTube to try. A small searched revealed some begin­ner videos for men, so giv­en one of those a try this morn­ing.

It’s now been a week since I ran out of cof­fee beans. More are on the way, but I miss the morn­ing rit­u­al of brew­ing myself a cof­fee.

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.
