Today has been a grey and foggy day, it’s felt like a real reflection of the mood of the last month. As I’ve driven around Cheltenham today doing some bits and bobs, I’ve seen more and more people starting to put up Christmas trees and lights. It’s been nice to see them emerging out of the gloom.
Today marks the start of Advent, with the first candle being lit in churches across the country we are reminded of the hope that comes from Jesus. The arrival of the King.
At the start of this year I started to go to a new church, given the pandemic if might not have been the best time, but the services I’ve been attending online have been ones of great comfort. They have shown great care, sensitivity, and compassion throughout the year, and I’m incredibly thankful that God guided me to this church. I’m looking forward to being able to go to a service again, I hope it is sooner rather than later. I’m sure it will be.
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.
