So I guess if I’m designing a brochure at this time of night I need to take a look at my time management;-)
It snowed last week and Britain ground to a halt. The weather forecast was timely and explicit (large animated snowflakes covering the whole map of the country, what more do you want) but it seems everyone still thought they’d have no trouble driving home from work. This/05/be in part due to the total lack of coherent public transport in the UK or simply down to dogged stupidity…
Spent Sat eve and Sunday on the Suffolk coast. Beatiful big sky on the way up. The flat landscape, half reclaimed fenland and half North Sea make for some serious oil painting vistas. Had fish and chips for breakfast on Monday before driving back to London. Unfortunately best fish and chip shop in world closed Mondays. Best pub in world was open for business but I figured Adnams not a good combination with driving.
Lots of work and no play. Big fight with Nick over Pumpernickle offices:-(
I am grateful for Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight entertainment, and in particular, their natty disposable headphones;-)
…But enough about that. the real news is that we have a new arrival in this world.
Zora Wilde Bissell was born on Saturday, 9 pounds, 1.2 oz, 20.75 inches. Caroline’s water broke at one pm, I tore home from the office, and we were at the hospital by 1:25 pm – and Zora was born at 3:05 pm. Fast and furious, all natural, a beautiful birth, with Caroline alert and inhabiting the moment. Mother and babe are doing well. we’re in that rush of newness, of fierce joy and tiredness, theo is doing great and we all home now.
I just wanted to post a public note re the ALA article. I’ve had lots of feedback and many requests for site debugging. I just wanted to apologize to all those who wrote with CSS questions: I debugged the first few, but after three days worth of CSS debugging I had to stop. So please don’t give up on your layouts, guys, and don’t think I don’t care—I do and the flood of mail has been fantastic. It’s just I’m way too busy right now:-(
