Actually waiting at a gate to get on a plane. First time since flying home from LCA2021.

From a couple of days before Christmas 2019 while staying in a tiny house in Pt Chev. I really wouldn’t object to working from home with this view at the end of the street!

Assembled part of a new desk today, and now realise I’d love the floor to look like it too.

My cat would like to point out that my computer would work better if I plugged in the cables.

TIL: I can make a Shortcut to set the wallpaper on my phone from any Share sheet... and how happy am I that I don’t need to keep a wallpapers album in my photo library now!


Phew. Self isolation over. (Only 24 hours. Not at all difficult since I’m sick so didn’t want to go anywhere anyway).

The birds are safe (they know she is there and will move away if she gets any closer), but this is just one reason why my adorable killing machine is an indoor only killing machine. (Where the only thing she can kill is the carpet by vomiting up hairballs every now and then)

The last two days, running a pyconline au stream vs today playing mario kart with the niece & nephew.

Ok, I get that I asked something a little silly, but what on earth is an s byte?


Tickets for Hamilton in Sydney next year acquired.

Health & mood 

Good news: I have white coat hypertension! (My blood pressure spikes when I go to the doctors. I wore a monitor for 24 hours to learn this and be sure I don’t need to take medication.

Meh news: my annual ultrasound to check my liver has triggered a CT scan this year. A little bit worried about that even though it’s probably nothing.

Crap news: a resignation at work that I’m super bummed about.

Cat, on blanket, pretty sure dinner (not for 3 hours) will never arrive so might as well nap some more.

I had to get up early and not have any coffee or breakfast until after two appointments, but at least I got to enjoy the walk there.

Cat picture because I’m just not ready for the weekend to be over and having to do work again tomorrow.

Turns out Ikea sells a photo frame that perfectly fits the post cards available at the Apple Park Visitor Center :D

Rare visit from a sulphur crested cockatoo today.

We don’t feed them, and usually the rainbow lorikeets harass them so they don’t stick around anyway.
