Week 123: Myrtle
I’m very tired at the moment despite the Iron and Vitamin D I keep putting into myself. I think I need a bit of time off soon to rest up properly.
I think it was maybe a couple of days of back-to-back meetings which threw me off a bit, those will kill your brain. I need a nice even mix of meetings and quiet focus to not be a zombie.
On Friday Charlotte took me to Myrtle for a belated birthday meal, it was incredible. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairing, everything was delicious. We did get chips on the way home though 👀
My feed parser is coming along nicely. I love it when you have a really good suite of end-to-end tests – it’s allowed me to completely overhaul large parts of the library and unit tests with full confidence that everything still works. I’m running these against a lot of spec-compliant and real-world feeds that I put together a while ago.
We didn’t get around to painting the office quite yet because I’m tired and lazy. This coming week hopefully! We’ve had a pot of nice sage green for ages and it’ll mean we can put up shelves, hang pictures, and think about the storage properly.
On Sunday evening we went to see Pendulum at Alexandra Palace. It started a little slow but was loads of fun by the end, I had a great time and I’m managed to behave sensibly enough to not have a terrible hangover 🎉
