Posts of a more personal nature, filed safely away from all the useful stuff!
I loved this little collection of quotes from philipchircop.com and recommend you click on the screen grab, or one of the links to go read them all.
I’m just filing this away here for posterity :)
I know, we’re almost a week into 2012 already, it’s a bit late for contemplating achievements and setting resolutions isn’t it? Every year, the “January diet” gets further reinforced by our populist media – all the adverts are suddenly for exercise DVDs, clever cookbooks and healthy food – and nearly everyone I know is “on a diet”. We’re a nation gone mad, and yet we’ll all be overweight again by Easter. We all strive to be better, and I’m tired of failing… so I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it right.

A very dear friend of mine just posted a comment on Facebook that has prompted me to write this “Thinking out loud” post about my sleeping habits, which is largely an excuse for exploring wikipedia and looking at pictures of cute sleeping kitties.
I couldn’t resist posting this here. This really was the best day of my life (so far), and Ed Crofts’ filming, editing and production of the wedding video is just breathtaking. This 4-minute edit captures everything about the day, just perfectly.
You can find out more about the video, and our photos, over at our wedding blog.
I apologise for documenting such a personal event on what is for all intents and purposes a technical blog, but I can’t resist the opportunity to share my happiness with the world. After all that is what a good wedding is all about – sharing and celebrating a union with family, friends, and the world!
This post will be mostly photos, however there are a few special people who I want to thank for their contribution. Warning! This is a soppy, heartfelt post – full of love and linkjuice :D
Under usual circumstances, I’d sit and contemplate the resolutions I made & the challenges I set myself last year, to see how well I’d fared. As it stands, so much has changed since last year that it’s almost irrelevant.
Last year was a catalyst, a year of ideas, a year of plans and a year of hard work. By August I realised I had to take drastic steps if I was ever going to move my career forwards. In the midst of summer I was trying to decorate my house, plan my wedding, keep up with blog & podcast and make decisions as to how to take the next big step. I guess I’m one of those people who thrive under pressure.
