Sean showed me this the other day. It’s not from him before you ask, it’s between two acquaintances. But the raw passion in it took my breath away: If I lost you, there’d be no reason to breathe any more. No reason to eat, drink, get up, live. Because every second of every day that […]

I’ve been quiet since Christmas – it’s been a nice relaxing time. Sean and I spent New Year down at his mother’s while he finished off his panto run before heading back to Wales via Battersea and his dad. It’s been good to have him around again, the house feels a lot more cosy when […]

The sea is a fickle and dangerous mistress and often underestimated. Last night a man lost his life in Aberystwyth, despite our best attempts to save him. Sean and I had been away all weekend, travelling down to London to see a most dissappointing Mac Expo. I was exhausted having driven all weekend and on Sunday […]

This blog has been far to quiet recently, but then I’ve not had time to do much of anything other than work and sleep. We’re in the week leading up to our first live customers on the system so to say we’ve been busy would like be like calling the surface of the sun “warm”. […]

This blog has been quiet recently. Very quiet. In my defence, I have been busy – extraordinarily busy. On thr bright side this does mean I have a few things to blog about. Two callouts to start off with, there’s a rant brewing about suppliers and in all that I’ve been told I can blog […]

Where have I been recently? I’ve spent this last week in Reading. We’re using a billing system made by a company called Portal. Except a while ago Portal got bought out by Oracle and now the product’s had its name changed to “Oracle Billing and Revenue Management”. Snappy title. So I’ve spent a week down […]

I’ve been touched this morning. Oy, you in the back, stop sniggering. Not like that… I am moved by my muse to write a blog entry. It’s not particularly fascinating, but hey, it’s 0600, what do you expect from this time of the morning. I’m sat in Aberystwyth, just got up. I’ll be leaving shortly […]

I’ve had a cracking weekend. For those of you who remember these things, it was a year ago that Sean and I first met. At this juncture I’d just like to thank my Volunteer Pimp. You did good. On Saturday morning, after I went to pick Sean up from Aber we headed off to Llanddeusant, […]

First, an apology. For those of you who hang on every word I write (yes, both of you), I apologise for not updating you. Things have been quiet recently. Well, no, not quiet – because I have been manically busy, especially at work where we have far more work than time. It’s just there’s not […]

It’s been a quiet weekend in the house this easter. On Thursday, my man-flu was bad enough that I decided to head down to see the Doc, who diagnosed a chest infection and put me on some anitbiotics. Blech. That rapidly turned into tonsilitis by Friday night and so the last few days have been […]
