I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.

Ditch & Merge

Just a quick entry to keep my readers up to date.
I have been very busy of late getting my life in order and deciding what is relevant, or not so as the case may be.  For those that were my friends on Facebook, you may have noticed I have not posted anything of late, that is because I have ditched my account as I am sick and tiered of how much Facebook tracks me outside of my profile, yes I know you can turn on and off certain privacy functions but the down side to that is, that overtime when Facebook decides to update itself it also sets how it wants your privacy settings to be, but that may not be what you want.  I think that privacy and data protection should be your right with no exceptions or changes to how you want it, regardless of updates.

I have also been working on combining both my photo website and personal website to just one webspace as recently I have sold work on ‘Scoopshot’ that requires a registration for tax purposes, so it seemed only the right thing to do that I should register as me an not as a business as ultimately I want to be recognised for my work.
It took a good month to merge the two websites and then also a further week of re-watermarking any images I had on the photo website, they are now sitting comfortably and well organised in their new home.

Lights On Lights Off

We are in such a throw away society that when things break we just bin them, but what happens when we need to fix them because throwing them away is not an option?
Today one of my break light on the car decided to blow and I had the choice to book my car in at the garage and pay about £25 to get it fixed or do it myself. I thought that if the instruction were int he car manual then it was designed to be fixed and not to use a garage to do the same job.
I had the bulb and so I thumbed through the pages of the car manual until I came across the lights section. Ok it was not overly easy to disassemble but breaking it down in stages and taking my time, I did change the bulb myself and so saved myself a trip to the garage and a bill at the end of it.

One Sock

So far this summer we have had some really hot days and also some cooler ones, but I got a feeling that the usual British summer time is not going to last.
I have noticed in my rehabilitation that the change in temperature is affecting my ankle and on colder days I am having to wear one sock on my damaged foot to keep my mobility at maximum and muscle ache at bay.
