Long weekend
Monday 25th August 2014 5:02 pm

I was just going to do a catch-up on the past couple of weeks (summary: really busy at work, plus Worldcon, but I am feeling better at least) but couldn't muster up the energy, so I won't. I'll summarise this weekend instead:

Gardening. I have filled up the garden waste bin and another six bin bags. Given that the bin takes about three bin bags worth, it'll take six weeks to get rid of all of it, unless I go down the tip. But I have mostly pruned everything that grew over the spring and summer, I just have the things that are currently flowering to go, once they stop flowering.

Doctor Who. Still mumbling. I tried without subtitles, but kept turning the volume up, until I was deafened by the music during an action scene, and I was still having to rewind bits because I was missing entire conversations. I didn't get used to Peter Capaldi being the Doctor. Time will tell if I will, but I have never got used to Peter Davison as the Doctor - looking that young he's just Tristan to me.

Doctor Who Remix. I have a poll up to see if anyone is interested in a round this autumn. I worked out a more prompt-based like idea to make it different from Remix and also because I am burnt out on exchange based ficathons.

Spring has sprung
Thursday 15th May 2014 9:10 pm

And my garden is full of weeds, despite me weeding only two weeks ago. Well, maybe not full, but there are some on the path and pebbles that either didn't die when I last sprayed them, or are new and massive (relatively speaking). Even the few borders I have to dig up the weeds from have a few in.

It's the part of gardening I hate. Doing the weeding makes your back ache, then the next day the muscles at the top of your legs, in your bum, really hurt, and a few weeks later you have to do it all again.

I have spent most of the summer gardening. After thinking I'd do some in spring and some in autumn spring never really happened, so summer it was. Given how cold and rainy and dark it's suddenly got, I think that turned out to be a good idea. Aside from some weeding and pruning what I mostly did was cut ivy. I did all my Big Finish audio listening for four months while I chopped ivy. To say there was a lot of it was an understatement:
