This Week

Life I've been feeling a bit flat lately, like I was doing little other than work, workout, and sleep (longer but at a lower quality than usual). So I've been making some changes, firstly I cut back on keeping food in my apartment - this drives me out in the morning at the weekend, and makes me ...

Some Thoughts on Blogging


Things I've Found Have a Backlog I always give the same advice when people ask me about starting a blog. I say: put together a month's worth of content first. As far as I know, no-one who has asked me this has actually started a blog, so maybe it's bad advice. Or, maybe it's good advice, because if you ...

5 Things I Like About London


I mostly hate living in London, and plan to follow this with a post with the 5 things I hate most about it. But let's start with the positives. 1.

This Week

Life My week consisted of just work and the gym, but I had a wonderfully social weekend - my friend's engagement party on a boat, brunch, and the V&A. Also managed to get in some Cate-time - gym, reading a novel, etc. Work Busy exhausting, but in a good way. I feel like my project and my little ...

This Week


Life Pretty low key this week, feeling really wrung out. Friend's birthday, and tried to go to the theatre with another friend but discovered that I had booked the tickets for the following day, so just went for a wonder and some sushi instead. Submitted a talk to a conference, so we'll see how that goes. Work Exhausting. Feels ...

Adorable Animal Background Beautiful Brown

I've been in a bit of an emotional funk for the last week or so, and I really wanted to snap out of it this weekend. I made myself go to the gym, and that didn't work (actually I felt worse). I wrote something, but concluded it was rubbish. I went on an adventure with a ...

This Week


Life I don't even know what I did this week, been so stressed lately and it's been catching up with me. Not sleeping well, etc. I think I'm getting less stressed, and that things are better, but it's been going long enough now that I just feel worn down by it. Missed mid-week kettlebell workout because ...

This Week


Life Hung out with friends, went to a startups meetup (interesting). Spent an afternoon teaching kids Python with Stemettes. Quality time in the gym - keeping things low key this week. By Sunday though I was totally zonked! Speakers are up for iOSDevUK. Work Demanding. Exhausting. But looked back at what I've achieved this quarter and even if there ...

Book: 4 Hour Body

4 Hour body

I have mixed feelings about Tim Ferriss. I read 4 Hour Work Week, and now 4 Hour Body (both Amazon), and it’s like, yes, good point, but it’s hard for me to imagine having that much control over my time. Penelope Trunk wrote something interesting, about how he works insanely hard but defines it all ...
