Working On: Big end of financial year push for HR Partner this month! Also going to be working with a designer on a whole new look and feel for the next generation of my HR SaaS product.

Reading: In the process of reading “Factfulness” by Dr. Hans Rosling. It has been a refreshing lesson on how to look at the state of the world today, and to realise that everything is not all doom and gloom. Also bought a copy of “Sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari to read this month.

Exercising: Still haven’t gone back to Kendo training yet, but I’ve serviced my bike and am beginning to go on long rides to try and get fitter. Also been walking a lot more while the weather is so brilliant here.

Writing: Re-started writing in the morning. Made even more fun by the fact I am learning a new writing script which is designed to obfuscate my private thoughts from anyone who may find my journal in the future.

Watching: Aside from casually watching the latest season of “Masterchef” (which to be honest, is losing its lustre and becoming a little boring), we haven’t really been watching anything new. Been enjoying snippets of “Victorian Farm”, an old series about a group of people living on a farm totally Victorian style. Also just finished watching the first season of “Dead to Me” and enjoying that.

Playing: Been revisiting some of my older classical guitar pieces, including Baroque favourites such as Scarlatti and Bach. Just posted a video on this blog with my latest attempts.

Recording: No formal recording, but doing a few videos to capture stuff ‘in the moment’.

Buying: Not many new things on the buying list as I am trying to reduce stuff, although I am keen on getting a Chinese Guqin stringed instrument to experiment with.

Travel: Still working on getting a week off to go to Bali and do some serious development work on my startup.

Can’t wait for August though - that is where I meet up with my old friend Jamie in Barcelona, then go on another Blues Cruise with him to Malta and Monte Carlo. Also at that time is our annual HR Partner team meetup in Prague. Bring on those air miles!
