    100 Days : Day Four (97)

    Slept in till 10:40.

    In the early afternoon we went for a run around Kingsbury Water Park. A load of the water’s-edge trees have been cut down, not sure why though. When we got there it was nice to see that the car park was pretty empty – no masses of people to avoid when doing our laps.

    Later on, after getting caught up with the new X Files series, Lizzie cleaned out and changed Moomin while I washed up and Cooked the tea.

    I’m quite impressed with myself in keeping up this 100 days so far.

    100 Days : Day Three (98)

    Today I saw possibly the worst film of my life – Dirty Grampa – at Vue, Star City.

    I think in parts the humour actually offended me. I couldn’t believe this was the same guy I’d seen in Jackie Brown.

    On a more positive note, me and Liz did go for a nice meal at the Green Man in Middleton. My only quarm was that my otherwise nice burger came on a bloody brioche bun.

    Then on the evening we watched the first episode of the new series of The X Files. Despite the mixed reviews I actually liked it.

    100 Days : Day Two (99)

    My fish and chips have just arrived.

    Currently sat in Sainsbury’s cafe once again. My nectar points are gonna be through the roof by Christmas.

    I’m thinking about restarting the ecommerce CMS I started for my last 100 days attempt. Except this time not part of the 100 days. Cant help thinking it’s a waste of time as there are already so many. But if I treat it as a learning curve, then it will have some benefit.

    Randomly thought about how far we’ve come with technology and yet I’m sat here stirring my tea with a wooden stick.

    100 Days : Day One (100)

    Mid last year I heard about the idea of the 100 days project.

    In a nutshell, you pick some form of creative pursuit — no matter how simple or complex — and commit to performing that action every day for 100 days.

    I put the idea to some co workers. One person out of a few interested people actually completed it.

    I failed in that challenge.

    So I decided that I’m going to start again with an alternate take on Jeremy Keith’s 100 words for 100 days. My plan is to write 100 words the first day, 99 on the second, 98 the third etc.

    This is the first.

    New Website design for 2016

    I have finally launched the redesign for my personal website.

    There’s nothing much different in the layout — it was more about the back-end structure than trying to come up with a fancy new front-end design.

    Overall I’m happy with it. Now I just need to add back in the little extras I added before, such as posting via SMS form my phone, and queuing the jobs up into background tasks. But as it is now, it seems to me to be a much better experience from the front end.

    I started to find my previous version hard to look at and hard to read. Hopefully the same wont happen with this one.
