Blog: General Rantings

I really hate walking my dog on some days…

And those days are Wednesdays and Saturdays, more specifically; on those mornings. And that's because these are the mornings that our bins are emptied, and (most of) the rubbish is taken away. And it's that 'most of' that is the issue - it;s what's not taken that's...

From a Dog Owner to Child Owners (and to normal adults)

When I was a kid, I was taught by my parents to always ask the owner before stroking a stranger's dog. Always. No matter how small or cute or placid it appears. Always, always ask first. Why isn't this being taught anymore? I'm out with Kimber, and adults and children...

The Introvert’s Workplace Wishlist

Or maybe it’s just me… Monday mornings, don’t ask me how my weekend was - if I wanted you to know, you’d have seen on Facebook. If you’re not on Facebook, that’s not my problem. Definitely don’t ask later into the week - and also don’t ask me what my upcoming weekend...

Today I got sworn at, on Twitter

Today I got sworn at, on Twitter, by the Technology Editor of The Guardian  for defending the assumption that all email marketers are spammers! These tweets have since been...
