This week I have been mostly…
In the office
I had a rare week where I spent each day in the office. But then it’s August – not exactly busy time on the education and/or conference front…
Helping with #edjournal
I was pleased to be able to connect James Michie and Nick Dennis, who each independently came up with the idea for a learning-focused educational journal. They’ve run with the idea and #edjournal: where’s the learning? looks like it’s soon going to be a reality. I’m delighted! 😀
Setting up a touchscreen kitchen PC
This has been too long in coming, but finally we’ve got a solution for family organization and cohesion. I’ve sold some stuff on eBay and have bought an MSI Wind Top AE1900 touchscreen PC. It fits rather wonderfully in the kitchen. We’re using it for calendars (Cozi.com), news (newsmap.jp), music (Spotify) and TV/radio (BBC iPlayer). It’s on been in there three days but now I can’t imagine life without it!
Watching the Wrestler
My Dad and I attempted to go and see The A-Team movie on Wednesday. Not a good time to go as Orange Wednesdays meant we couldn’t even get near the box office! We came back to my house and watched The Wrestler in our cinema room. What a powerful and well-written/directed/produced film! Moving.
Being lax on the exercise front
I only ran twice this week and did my weights once. Must. Do. Better. It really does affect my productivity! 😮
