Hard to believe that’s six months of the year gone already.
But it has and that means that Glastonbury is only three weeks away! I really need to buy me some wellies.
Other than that, life is good. I’m on the verge of, finally, buying a bike through the Cycle to Work scheme, which I’m just waiting on being launched at my workplace, and I’m managing to get to the gym a couple of times a week with the odd game of badminton thrown in for fun.
Still not really reading all that much, and my new camera has been severely underused, but that’s mostly because my new role as webmaster for the ISTC is taking up a fair bit of my downtime. Still to find the balance with that but it’s fun, particularly as I’m going to be rebuilding the entire website very soon.
Starting to think about the next holiday too, money will constrain me a bit, so likely to be a long weekend city break type thing, but where? Those things can be costly, so another option is a cheap and cheerful package somewhere hot and sunny. A week in the sun, reading, drinking and generally lounging around… yeah I could cope with that.
I did done a guest post

Odd how writing for someone else sparks my creative side yet I struggle to write for my own blog…
Anyhoo, Lori asked, I said yes and the resulting blog post is now available on her blog – Rarely Wears Lipstick: But, honestly.
But don’t just read my guest post, check out the other guest posts as well.
What else do you do?

If ever I needed proof that I am not a bastard I need only look at what I tend to do in my spare time. For not only do I look and crack the same crap jokes as my Dad, I also seem to have the same need to be busy that he has.
Admittedly, looking through the archives of this blog, that’s something that is fairly well documented here but a recent development has finally cemented this quiet thought in my mind.
After agreeing to take over the running of the ISTC website (including a rebuild and redesign which are underway), I’ve recently agreed to serve on the Council of said organisation. That means reports, budgets, minutes, meetings and the like. Thankfully it’s not a huge commitment of time and it doesn’t really change my main focus but, knowing me, I’ll need to be on the lookout to make sure I don’t take on any further tasks.
I still have a couple of other things to finish off too, and hoping to get a clear run at them this week to get them out of the way.
There is one other thing I must do though.
Remove Football Manager 2011 from my iPad. I’ve already lost about two entire days to it.
Focus man, focus!
