Weeknotes 61 - Cheeky little holiday
- Tesco is rationing Pukka teas. That’s where we’re at.
- Ocado app has been exceptionally slow every evening this week. Tapping “Add to trolley” would give no feedback for several seconds until the item showed up in the trolley. This weekend the site fully collapsed. When it came back up the check out process put me in a “virtual queue”.
- My parents used to tell me stories about rationing and shortages during communism. Toilet paper was notoriously hard to get and people queued outside the shops for hours for even a slim chance of getting some. Shop shelves were constantly bare, with only matches and vinegar always available. Good job we left all of that behind with the arrival of capitalism!
- Alice and I went to Rye for a day to eat nice food and buy fabrics. We went to the Merchant and Mills shop and it was as amazing as I had imagined it to be. It was exceptionally hard to limit myself to buying fabric for only three projects. The perfect cheeky little holiday.
- One of my long-standing social events went fully remote this week and despite the usual tech-related faff it was fun to just hang out on the same call.
- Darebee has lots of fun workout plans you can do at home with no equipment. Their explanation of why they don’t have ads, product placements and don’t take sponsorship makes me appreciate it even more.
- Reading Agency at the moment. It’s really fun, but I’ve not read Peripheral so I’m starting to suspect there might be some context I’m missing.
