Cooking And Editing – The Climb #350

Saturday 6th January 2018 It’s been a bit of a hectic day today. It seems like it’s been ages since I had a free weekend.  There always seems to be some event on, or on call work with the day job, or a tournament or the like.  I have sparring tomorrow but given that it’s [...]

The Dresden Reread – The Climb #349

Friday 5th January 2018 One of the things I really wasn’t happy about last year was how little I read.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to read – I bought a ton of books.  I just never found the time in between edits and tournaments to really sit down days in succession and read. [...]

Adventures In Brimstone – The Climb #348

Thursday 4th January 2018 As I’ve previously said, I end up buying a load of boardgames on kickstarter.   They are amazing value for money but I do end up going all in, which means I really should be playing them some more. Currently, the only time I get to play is when my friends come [...]

Getting Organised for 2018 – The Climb #347

Wednesday 3rd January 2018 My main aim for this week is to get my ToDo list up to date. I have been a long time user of ToDoist and have processes for tracking and progressing tasks.  It’s pretty effective and has allowed me to be super-productive in recent years.  I don’t just use it for [...]

The Best Mundane Day Ever – The Climb #346

Tuesday 2nd January 2018 Sometimes it’s the little things. Today was a completely hectic day.  I was back at the day job today and there are reports that need doing, people who are off, meetings that needed dialling into.  I felt quite productive despite the stress and thought I multi-tasked well but I didn’t seem [...]

The First Great Genre Dumpster Fire Of 2018 – The Climb #345

Monday 1st January 2018 One of my plans for this year is to do more on twitter.  I left after it got all political and negative but decided I would return and just be… well, fun and witty and post memes.  This would mean deleting negative people but I was fine with that.  It seemed [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]

The Danger Of Doing What Is Expected – The Climb #343

Saturday 30th December 2017 I didn’t feel too bad this morning considering how much I’d had to drink at the party, but I was glad when some of the others who’d stayed over decided that we’d go to a greasy spoon.  I’m not sure whether it was just the hangover, but I think that was [...]

Games Day 2017 – The Climb #341

Thursday 28th December 2017 Today was my annual games day, spent in the company of some of my oldest friends. I’ve known Nick and Simon since we volunteered in a youth charity together some 25 years ago.  It doesn’t seem that long ago… but we’ve been through a lot - good and bad - together.  [...]
