the photo bits of this website have been out of date for far too long. and i’m finding that my disorganised photo collection is putting me off going out and taking new ones. time for a change. i’m in the process of swizzling all my archive photos onto flickr.

when i first looked at flickr at the beginning of the year it looked good but mostly useful for posting mobile camera phone blogs and the like. it’s been popping up more and more on websites i visit recently so i had another look and it’s really come on! it’s now got tons of really useful features that i’d never get around to implementing on my own site and an api to play with so i can tie my pics into my own site too, satisfying the tinkering developer in me as well as well as the lazy organiser.


Falconer’s Lure by Antonia Forest

In books read on December 15, 2004

Somehow not as entertaining as the first couple of Marlow books. Falcon stuff was all a bit tedious and the plot wandered off somewhere else that wasn't as interesting as the falcon stuff anyway.

Purchased on 20th September 2004.

In the Place of Fallen Leaves by Tim Pears

In books read on December 7, 2004

'Atmospheric' is the best word I can think of to describe the world laid out in this book. That and 'fabulous'. It's one of those stories that seems to have no real plot to it but kind of meanders until you realise that you've gone somewhere without being quite aware of the journey. It's set in the hot late summer of 1984 in a Devon village with eleven year old Alison leading us around her family and friends. The story is coming-of-ageish I suppose, but it's delightful. Definitely an author to read more of. Exceptionally well written too.



some things

In Uncategorized on December 6, 2004

things i’ve done lately that haven’t involved much web stuff:

  • sold a house (i hope) (after 3 months on the market to the second viewer, who actually found the house on the web from cyprus) (at least it justified our decision to go with the more expensive estate agent with a better website)
  • bought a house (i hope) (not much to do with the web because all the local estate agents websites in the area we’re buying in are useless)
  • got caught up doing the new su doku puzzles in the times (they get harder through the week so they’re boooor-ring on mondays once you’ve figured them out and by friday you’re tearing your hair out but it’s much more satisfying)
  • lots of knitting (but nothing finished, this may be remedied soon)
  • found a solicitor for conveyancing who has entered the 21st century (“here’s your online account to track your house purchase and sale” – the last time we moved our solicitor was deeply suspicious of these new fangled telephone things. he was, oh, mid-thirties tops.)
  • browsed the new issue of knitty (and fallen in love with the zip up hooded jacket, what a surprise. how many zip up knitted jackets does one woman need? answers in less than 3 figures not accepted.)
  • thought everybody elses accessoried elephants were delightful. (mine never got off the ground, and i think i’m giving december’s ‘holiday hang-ups’ a miss too, unless unavoidable inspiration strikes.)

plus some more that i can’t think of at the mo. at least it’s not so quiet here now!

The Fear Sign by Margery Allingham

In books read on December 1, 2004

I used to like Campion a lot, these days I find these books a bit tedious. No real mystery to get stuck into in this one, just a load of capers with very little motivation. Some nice scenes and tricks but as a whole it just didn't add up to anything interesting.

Purchased on 8th November 2000.
