First proper morning back to work after illness, holiday, illness. My immune system is the worst.

What’s all this then? Laura and I have a couple of things we’ll be announcing next week.


Ended up doing my talk barefoot. Decision to paint my toenails gold last week paid off!

Getting ready to go on first this morning. Got thoroughly rained on so I might look a little soggy on stage 😩

I almost forgot to share photos of the gorgeous printed Smashing Magazine! Getting all this into 2000 words was a challenge, but I’m happy with the result. Thank you Rachel Andrew for the opportunity and Owen Gregory for the editing.

You can read more about the magazine (and get a print or digital copy):

I hate to point out the glaringly obvious, but when they call it a “data policy” and not a “privacy policy”, it’s a red flag. They’re avoiding that tricksy privacy word for a reason…

This post is brought to you by another day spent trawling the policies of jaw-droppingly invasive trackers.

Just watched a tiny little wren hop around outside our door collecting @gigapup’s shedded fur. Hope it’ll make for a cosy nest!

Being a clumsy fool, I sprained my ankle. Osky is unimpressed…

Nu Metal is the perfect soundtrack to blocking trackers for @better. Don’t judge me, it’s really angsty work.

The “no really, stop taking photos, I want attention” position…

Don’t want to move. Just finished cutting the grass and he’s come to snuggle up next to me…

Why are the Quantcast consent dialogs now redirecting you to the site’s privacy policy when you hit “Do not accept”…? I don’t know what the legal term is, but imho it’s properly dodgy.

Yikes, my RSS feed is a tedious regurgitation of Google press releases this morning.

Nice little sunrise drive to the airport, heading off to Stockholm for the first time, and with a new talk too.
