Well, here we are. Thoughts From a Small Office has a new home at blogspot. The blog has been running for quite some time, it was over at Opera originally but it needed a slightly new direction and having looked at the options I decided on this one. How it will pan out I really have no idea but the content of the posts will remain, by and large, the same as always.... which is a bit of all sorts. There really is no theme, it just goes wherever the mood takes it and volume of content will depend on how much time I have at my disposal, or if I feel that I've got something worth nattering on about.
The title of the blog is what it is, thoughts from a small office, which
is the small office here in my home. Home is Yorkshire, England, in an
average sized town which nestles on the outskirts of two cities, urban
but only a stones throw away from some wonderful countryside. The house
is a big old Victorian affair.
I have a wife of many years [referred to as Mrs G for the purpose of
this blog] and two offspring, who haven't sprung off yet, even though
they are both adults... but we all get along famously so the house is a
happy one. The small office is where I can usually be found, it's where I
come to get away from the things I prefer to avoid, mainly the TV... I
also do work from here as well, much of the time, which is nice.
When I'm not in here I'm either out cycling, I'm a keen cyclists and
have been for more years than I care to remember, or enjoying a good
long walk, watching my local Sunday league football team, or out with my
friends enjoying a few beers and a good laugh. Simple things to most,
I'm sure, but those are the things that keep me sane. I know my way
around computers [don't call me if yours goes wrong] and have an
interest in trying out various software in my spare time, although it
has to be free because I'm way past paying for it.. I like music from
classical to rock, ambient to blues, dub to funk.. in fact there's not
much in the way of music that I don't like and I've accumulated a large
collection over the years, which is a source of great pleasure to me.
I enjoy the outdoors, lots of walking, running, a bit of climbing, all
that. I like to keep myself reasonably fit in the winter and then really
go for it in the warmer months of the year... of which there aren't too
many around here, and certainly not at the moment, and like most people
I like to travel.
Not much more to add to all that, except to say that I'm 53 years old,
act half that most of the time, look like a Yeti, don't take life too
seriously unless I have to, which isn't often. I like bars that stay
open late, where the beer is cheap, the music is loud, and the company
is good... there's one in every town.
That's it, second post on blogger done... I'll maybe transfer a couple
of posts from the old one onto here and then carry on as before, posting
whenever and about whatever. If you followed the link from the old one
over to here then I'm glad you could make it. Stay tuned and we'll see
how it goes.
