Drinking Habbits

I will be attending the InstMC Dinner tonight, as the guest of Honeywell. This will be an evening of free drinks and dinner and a good chance to have fun with other folk from industry. It will be the first time I have had a drink in a while.

One Idiot Can Spoil a Day

Earlier this week, I cycled from work into Falkirk town centre. After the journey, I was asked how the trip went and my first reaction was that it was horrible. But then I caught myself.

Most of the trip went fine. It was just one particular part that spoilt it ...

Ending Inactivity

After my post where I sketched out the idea of Disastrous Dinners I noticed that I have been very inactive with my IChemE membership.

I am supposedly still on the IChemE Scottish Members Group committee, however I don't think I have done anything to help in the last year ...

Wanted: A Good Jacket with Pockets

When out at the shops today, I tried to find a new jacket to replace my current one. My main issue with my current jacket is that it is water resistant but it doesn't hold up to heavy rain. It is also not particularly warm if I am standing ...

Getting Technologically Old

For many years, I have wondered about the process of getting old and watching technology progress and being unable to keep up. As someone who has always loved and been interested in technology, I found it difficult to believe that I will, one day, be unable to keep up and ...

90 Days

So my daily posting streak lasted 90 days.

Last night when I got home, we ended up doing the evening routine in a different order and we swapped over who did the various tasks. As a result, I completely forgot about writing and publishing a post. Annoyingly I have been ...

Thursday Night Fever

Well I found out why I had lost my energy. Right after posting last night's entry, I crawled into bed feeling very cold.

For the next four hours I was curled up and feeling cold despite my body temperature being particularly high. Then about 11pm, the fever broke and ...
