18 February 2018A new personal best for me this week. I ran the Worthing Half Marathon in 1:54:08 (chip time) which was a massive half marathon PB ..... by 15 seconds. But, 15 seconds is still a PB!
12 February 2018Just one subject for my weeknotes post today. A trip to Italy last weekend to meet with friends and watch Italy v England in the rugby Six Nations Championship. It's a trip I make every two years because that's when England play in Rome.
01 February 2018In this weeknotes post, I talk about freelancing business and referrals, the Perchology newsletter, and Horsham Coworking where a spare room and banners have produced some surprising results.
27 January 2018My third weeknotes post describes recent running adventures, my work updating a Perch CMS site, and personal finance. Quite a mixture!
20 January 2018Here's my second weeknotes post where I look back on what I've done this week (web development and outside work). And put down a few thoughts about freelancing. Let's start with that.
12 January 2018After reading Rachel Andrew's weeknotes post, I have been inspired to do something similar for myself. Mainly so that I can look back on the year. Mind you, I'm not expecting my posts to describe quite as much!

14 June 2017Yesterday evening, was the normal Tuesday run with Horsham Joggers. It was the second Itchingfield Time Trial of the year. There's a club prize for the runner who improves their time the most.
22 May 2017I ran a 10 km race at the weekend and was a bit disappointed with my time. Afterwards, I realised that I need to think more positively during a race.
10 May 2017I visited Bath last weekend for the University's 50th Birthday celebrations. I studied Chemistry in the 1980s and, although I have visited since, it's been a a few years (five?) since my last trip. My visit was a mix of familiarity, memories, new things and old friends.
26 April 2017Freelance web developer is my job but I sometimes feel that it's no longer as exciting as it was. Freelancing promises to be a flexible and rewarding career role but the reality is somewhat different. There are freelancing 'foibles' to overcome, that's for sure.
24 April 2017Parkrun is an inspiration. Run, walk or jog. Everyone can take part. Here are three moments from last weekend's Horsham parkrun that illustrate that and show how everyone gets involved.
