Taking a night off

Been feeling low today and not much has helped – killing an evening playing Lord of the Rings online helped me forget for a while but having quit for the night (see me practising moderation! :) I’m back to feeling low. So I’m taking a night off from blogging whilst still trying to achieve my […]

Sometimes It’s The Small Things

I was going through my RSS feed tonight looking for inspiration for a post and I realised there were a lot of small tips I’d tagged to read up on. A lot are from Lifehacker which is a brilliant site (and which I’ve probably gushed about before) This first idea is to use 3 ring […]

Weekly Summary & Progress

Outtakes on Life

Not exactly sure how to explain the idea behind this post. I thought I’d publish a post monthly where I can blog about the small stuff that happens in my life and that is amusing. Some of this stuff is likely to have been posted on Facebook and/or Twitter. Late one night my daughter comes […]
