Well, this is a healthy (well) [stair]well (mainly because I couldn’t safely take a photo of the lift well)
Day 6 of #mbsept
Forest (sort of) at night
Day 5 of #mbsept
Orange (although it’s often still referred to as The Purple Door for historical reasons)
Day 4 of #mbsept
Finished listening to Echo Lake by Joan Sauers 📚🎧
Precious… a fitting prompt for (Aussie?) Father’s Day today. Kids weren’t interested in being photographed so I took a photo of my wedding ring and Melissa’s engagement and eternity rings
Day 3 of #mbsept
Buildup… A very literal response to today’s prompt but I quite like the striking blue of the sky
Day 2 of #mbsept
Abstract… not concrete…
Day 1 #mbsept
[Mostly] finished reading The Big Con by Mariana Mazzucato and Rosie Collington 📚
Not exactly a page turner but helpful to reflect on the role of consultants and how to make sure they’re providing a long term benefit to an organisation
The excitement (and nervousness) are building for my first ever conference talk!
More holiday reading down the coast: Deadly Cross by James Patterson 📚
Finished reading: 23rd Midnight by Maxine Paetro and James Patterson 📚
Underwhelming story and writing, never really felt immersed or invested 🤷♂️
Very excited (and nervous) to be accepted as a speaker at RubyConf Thailand in October 🥳
If all goes to plan I’ll be implementing a HTCPCP server live on stage.
Looking forward to listening to the keynote speakers!
Thoroughly enjoyed reading Joanna Jenkins’ debut novel, How to Kill a Client 📚
I had the killer figured out early on and was patting myself on the back, right up until the final chapters proved me wrong.
Found A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin on the bookshelves of our holiday rental. Good story but much grittier than what I normally read 📚
More holiday reading: The Girl in the Castle by Emily Raymond and James Patterson 📚
By the by, I’d love to know more about how these books written by both a famous author and a lesser known author work 🤔 First saw it a long time ago with Tom Clancy but it seems to be happening more and more lately.
Finished reading In The Blink of An Eye by Jo Callaghan 📚
The plot seemed a little too coincidental at times but the author’s real life experiences and emotions were well captured in the lead character. Glad I read it!
Finished re-reading The Sentinel by Andrew Child and Lee Child 📚 Enjoyable but not memorable in any way. Going to try a new author with my next book
Just finished some light holiday reading in Sweden, No Plan B by Lee Child and Andrew Child 📚
Just read Recursion by Blake Crouch after seeing it mentioned by Manton 📚
Clever premise and reasonably well-paced.
Finished reading: The Bullet That Missed by Richard Osman 📚
Finished reading: The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman 📚
Finished reading: The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman 📚
Finished reading: Rhythm of War Part Two by Brandon Sanderson 📚
Finished reading: Rhythm of War Part One by Brandon Sanderson 📚
