The second entry in a series, reviewing my month that was.

What Went Well at Home?

  • I am still aware of my Year of Fun and applying the philosophy to my thinking.
  • My son started a new year at a new school. He has settled in well, and we are very happy with our decision to move him to a different school.
  • I met up for drinks with an old school friend; somebody I haven’t seen for 25 years. It’s incredible how a common link, such as a school history, can eliminate the sense of talking to a stranger. We happily chatted the evening away.

What Went Well at Work?

  • I’m going on annual leave soon, so this has been a month where I’ve had to plan my wind-down, so that I can step away and not having upset clients and work left in limbo. I’ve been very happy with the way I’ve managed this wind-down project. Things should finish up very neatly with no loose ends.
  • I helped set up a colleague with a new project, which they appreciated greatly.


  • I took David to our second EPW indie wrestling show. David loved it once again, and has already been talking about the next show. It seems this may become a standing father/son date. I’m cool with that!
  • I resigned from my role of Director at Midlas. After almost 4 years of service, it was time to step away.
  • Celebrating the birthday of a friend by playing basketball on a rooftop court in the CBD.
  • Participated in a busy bee cleaning the grounds of the local Scout Hall.

My Media Diet

  • Continued watching Star Trek: Discovery, season 2.
  • Watched the first season of Travelers on Netflix. Created by the same guy who did Stargate SG-1 which is one of my all-time favourite shows.
  • NBL basketball finished its regular season, with my home team Perth Wildcats finishing on top of the ladder. Into the play-offs for the 33rd straight year!
  • Toll by Matt Gemmell, languished unread for no real reason.

My Passion Project

  • Continued writing on my wiki through the month, including a regular daily journal.
  • Had a realisation that I’ve been journalling in Day One for 6 years, with over 1,000 entries. It’s a sneaky constant in my writing system.
