Alexandra's Notebook

Week Notes June 3-9

I haven't written a weeknote in ages but now I've moved to Bear Blog I think it's time to get back into a more regular pattern, especially as it helps me remember what I've done (or not done) throughout the previous week.


While #Junited2024 continues it seems I've fallen off the bandwagon somewhat, as I missed posting links to anything this weekend. That's what happens at weekends, family have other ideas on how you should spend your time and, well, blogging gets relegated on the ToDo list to somewhere below cleaning the toilet.

My partner's aunt has been moved to the long-term hospital across the road from us and, because my dear sister in law is on holiday all this week up in the north, we've been volunteered to not only visit but collect her laundry for cleaning. Given my SiL lived 30 minutes out of the city, it's looking like we've now been volunteered permanently to cover said duties for the foreseeable future. I shouldn't complain as this duty will fall mainly to my OH, not me.


We've been getting stuck into a few TV shows this last week, including: I also bought Steve Berry's latest book, The Atlas Maneuver this last weekend. I do love his Cotton Malone series and I'm looking forward to reading this one.


Like many, JC Probably and Robert Birming, I'm in the process of moving my wordpress blog here, to Bear Blog, as I feel like I might write more here, with less distractions. Especially as the company hosting my wordpress blog just put up their prices again. And I'm getting tired of finding my blog off-line for whatever reason. So here I am.

As and when I get sorted, I'll upgrade to a paid service here so I can use my own domain name. I just have to figure out how to do that. I'm sure there's documentation somewhere, I just have to find it.

I also have to figure out how to link this blog to mastodon so people can comment. I'm sure I'll figure it out. Till then I'll have to manually cross post over there.

Thanks for reading, Alex
