Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.
Life In General.
It’s March already – can’t believe this year seems to be going so fast, I’ve got so much going on that time is flying by. Consequently this edition of Quick Links is likely to be quite light on content.
Next week it’s my birthday and I have a rule that I never work on my birthday. In the past when I have, it’s never a good day at work (something goes wrong or something bad always happens) and consequently I have a bad birthday. This means in the past I’ve taken leave (normally the whole week), now that I work for myself I’ll just take the day off – I don’t book meetings for that day and I tend to screen my calls and email a little more.
More work on proposals this week, some are longer term and some with quite quick turn-a-rounds. Still waiting to hear on those already submitted. So far the success rate is zero. That happens sometimes, but paid work is obviously better!

What’s the saying? “You don’t see one of those everyday”? In this case it’s true, bit surprising to see an previously unseen species. It happens occasionally with birds and butterflies but sharks don’t seem to get the same coverage.
