The kids have successfully shared a room for a week and things haven’t been noticeably worse than they were before sleep-wise. If baby girl could learn to stop shouting at 5am it would be great but even so I’ve been pleasantly surprised.

I’ve been messing about with an old FUJIFILM XE-1 and a cheapo knock-off manual lens for the week. It has been so much fun that I cancelled my order of the hugely hyped X100VI (fixed lens), arranged to send back the XE-1, and ordered an XE-4 and a Voigtlander manual lens instead. I think this should draw the curtains on my current round of camera/lens indecision (but I think it will probably set the tone for much more of the same in the future). I’ve definitely got a bit of the joy of photography back though – I hope it will outlast the thrill of having a new toy (I think it will).

Took the little man to the fair on Friday and Saturday. He demanded to go on the dodgems even though the last time we did that he really hated it. He hated it again. Aeroplane and hot air balloon carousels were a hit though – I wish I could bottle that look of unbridled joy on his face.

New skatepark in Finsbo looks sick.


Got a Prismic staging environment up and running after some initial teething problems.

Didn’t quite get round to looking into any of the design systems stuff I was supposed to. I’m struggling to be enthused about it and have been putting it off if I’m honest. Maybe (hopefully) the enthusiasm will come when I start working on it next week.

Attended two OKR presentation meetings. Dry af. It’s clear why attendance is mandatory because otherwise it would be non-existent. Can’t help but feel like there has to be a better way to share knowledge between teams.

Having a break. Not missing it too too much just yet so another week off probably makes sense.
