Been foraging for snacks for several weeks now ahead of my winter hibernation.

I’m going to give the Apple ‘Focus’ modes another whirl, I think. 💻

Did quite well ignoring Black Friday emails. Only thing I treated myself to are some Lyre’s alcohol-free ‘spirits’.

‘Black Friday’ is perhaps the handiest time to sort those newsletter subs out. From nowhere, a deal sent from a company you forgot existed. It’s been an unsubscribe frenzy these past few days.

I’m back from the talk. Still digesting large parts of it.

I’m off to a presentation about energies at ancient megalithic sites later. Should be interesting.

Shane and I today. 🐕

Shane the lurcher looks into the distance as a hairy faced man looks constipatedly into the lens.

I’m toying with the thought that the only posts I’ll engage with anywhere outside of are ones about dogs. Had a bad experience a while back, it’s utterly knocked my confidence and I’m second guessing everything.

Operation ‘sneak tablet into dog’s food’ unsuccessful. He got more food, but little of the tablet. We are bereft of cheese, but I will win. 🐕

Red weather warning for this neck of the woods courtesy of the incoming Storm Debi. Schools are opening later due to the potential for injury. Hopefully everyone will be sensible.

A better performance by Burnley, but still three conceded. ⚽️

Was there an issue with yesterday, or is my WiFi up the pole?

The less twitter-y twitter becomes, the more twitter-y BlueSky becomes.

The Amazon ad with the sledging older ladies is really quite lovely.

Just watched Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s performance on ‘Jools Holland’ from last-night. 🎶😍

I’ve almost finished painting. The mess I’ve made is incredible.

I’m tidying before painting and can’t help but think I’ve made a huge mistake. The clutter. The absolute clutter I’ve managed to hoard, the hidden mess posted behind the sofa. I’m too weak!

Current position. 🎶
