This Week

Playing with my image filters

Life Hung out with friends, made it to the gym again - not as much as "usual" but a start. Still feeling a bit worn out but I think that is stress as much as anything else. Sent off a draft of my book chapter again. Exciting! Eventually it will be the final draft, which is scary and ...

This Week

Life Still feeling a bit under the weather but so much better, really. Still trying to rehydrate and relax a bit. Went to see some apartments, met up with a school friend (I must not have seen her in 10 years! Crazy) and worked on The Secret Project some more. My parents came to London for the ...

Being an Expat

I (still) worry my life is vastly more boring now that I'm no longer an expat... but maybe returning "home" just takes some acclimatising, just as moving to a "foreign" place did. A lot of people talk about living abroad, but it's something that people don't always get around to. Time. Opportunity. Whatever. Or just because ...

This Week

:- new arrival

Life Such a dull week, I'd been feeling under the weather for a while and it hit me with a vengeance. So I spent 4 days on the sofa barely moving and feeling extremely sorry for myself! Then went to spend some time with my family for the weekend. And, get an eye test. I ordered super ...

I try and work manageable (sustainable!) hours but sometimes my work gets prioritised over my life. And my view ...

This Week


Life Gym and brunch with a new (local!) friend, faux-husband arrived from Sydney, all too briefly, which was amazing. Made it to an event at Twitter and got to catch up with a friend, had lunch with another (and dinner to round off the week, which was lovely), and spent the weekend in Shropshire for a wedding ...

The Day I Leave The Tech Industry

red curtain

I know that this will happen, that one day I will have had enough, and I will leave. It's something I think about on a regular basis, and wonder, what will I do after? Will I move to a cheaper city and make things, consult, and hope to make ends meet? Will I retreat still ...

This Week


Life A friend from the US was over, and it was great to see her, and one of my other friends returned from months away, so we got to catch up (and plot!) which was awesome. I still feel pretty energised, although I was pretty wrecked towards the end of the week but I actually took a ...

5 Things I Hate About London


See part 1: 5 Things I Like About London. 1. Quality of Life This is the main thing. The #1 worst thing by far about London. Quality of Life in London is really low. Housing is expensive. Commutes are long. As a relatively well-paid London resident I am lucky enough to have the choice of horrendous commute ...
