OH. MY. GOD. I woke up at half seven this morning and it was pitch black and -4C! Not liking this development at all. Admittedly I could still stay in bed unlike Stu who had to actually go, like, outside… Sorry dear.
I think my email is slowly coming back to life. I depend on two different providers, Demon in the UK for incoming mail and Sonera in Finland for outgoing mail, and both of them have been completely f*cked for the last couple of weeks. Which is nice. I’m definitely receiving more mail now though, judging by the amount of work that’s been coming my way… Talking of work, I’ve been just laying out this feature about a project in Nottingham Prison called the Big Book Share, and wow, it’s moving stuff. It’s about prisoners being able to read children’s books on tape for their kids. Doesn’t really sound like much, but for the prisoners it’s a huge thing to be able to interact with their children in this way and have influence over their developing years. V. touching, honestly.
Oh and I finally got the humidifier yesterday. It’s exactly the same model as I had as a kid (cept that one was brown and this one white), which is strange. In some things there hasn’t been much improvement in 20 years it seems. Also, the nice sales man told me that in Finland the recommended relative humidity of indoor air is between 30% to 45%, where as in England the humidity on average is over 70% all year round. No wonder we’ve had some trouble adjusting! Strange things.
Site-wise, have added some links. Will add more when I think of cool/fun ones.
