Three things.

  • Winter seems to have finally arrived here in Northern Ireland. We had a couple of excellently cold days, and now it's just wet. That is the true heart of winter in this part of the world. One of the things I miss about Edinburgh is how it could get properly cold, and even snow occasionally.
  • In spite of my intentions otherwise, as Christmas gets closer I only seem to get busier. It seems like I could do with it being eight weeks away instead of four. It's probably about time I learned some time-management. That or employed a ghost-writer, along with a ghost-facilitator, ghost-trainer and ghost-student... Less than four weeks to a wee break is great and terrible both at once. And I'm horrified that the Advent has become a countdown to holiday, at least on some level.
  • The iPhone interface is not hugely well-suited to inputting HTML. Finding the < and > symbols takes too many actions, and the auto-correct gets occasionally flummoxed by the tags. Yet strangely it seems quite happy with 'flummoxed'. Still, it gives me something to do when I'm waiting on my wife and I've forgotten my novel.
