The good and the bad
Sunday 15th September 2013 9:18 pm

After working Friday evening last week (which I was expecting) I ended up working Friday evening this week (which I wasn't). Friday was just one of those days of everything going wrong, which I should have realised was going to happen when I woke up at 6am (when it was still dark) and couldn't get back to sleep.

Fortunately the rest of the weekend improved. And the temperature in the house got so cold that two jumpers and fingerless gloves were not cutting it and I turned the heating on. So I am less miserable for being cold and the boiler wasn't as loud and annoying as I had convinced myself it was.

I have spent quite a bit of today playing with the matching for [lj-comm]dw_remix[/lj-comm]. I am probably over-thinking it - I certainly could have done it much quicker and simpler if I hadn't been trying to make it as fair as possible. Although with remixing sometimes having more stories to choose from is not as good as it first sounds. At some point I will stop endlessly tinkering with it and declare it as good as it's going to get.

On the other hand, I have finished the first draft of An Unearthly Child at the Chalet School! Once it's finished (which will hopefully be by 22nd November) it'll probably be getting on for 10,000 words. I just have a load of things I need to look up in various CS books. I did re-read them, but that was last year and it's only in writing this that I've realised how much I've forgotten...

The cold
Wednesday 28th November 2012 9:39 pm

I don't like the cold. Or rather, I don't mind it (and certainly prefer it to the heat) when I can go out in it for brief periods and then come back to a warm house. It's the house being cold I don't like.

The trouble is that the boiler is really loud and I can't sleep through it (even with ear plugs in). So I have it set to come on at the same time as my alarm goes off, which means that, depending on the temperature outside, it can be really cold inside. It helps to put my clothes on the radiator and eat porridge for breakfast, but I still don't like it.

It especially annoys me at the weekend when I have to drag myself out of bed and downstairs to turn it on. I can go back to bed for a bit, while I wait for the house to warm up, but by the time I've been awake that long I'm really hungry, so have to get up to eat breakfast (even if I go back to bed again afterwards). It's harder to get going in the morning when it's too cold to be out in it (or contemplate taking off any clothes).
