Welp, Anna Dodson and I managed to have a second Sunday lunch, with leftovers! Hopefully going to make it through the afternoon without a nap 😴

Not much #Hacktoberfest at tonight's #HomebrewWebsiteClub but I did manage to almost get my auto-configuring #Micropub editor set up so it'll provide me a way to create content for any posts that are supported on my site! This uses q=post-types and works really nicely, from some limited local testing

Last night I got a hand delivered awesome #ProjectFunction hoodie from the lovely Project Function team - it's super comfy and super awesome! You can get one too by becoming a VIP Patron on https://www.patreon.com/join/ProjectFunction

Well Anna Dodson and I had a lovely afternoon at the Arboretum this afternoon - felt a bit like being back to normal, although it was a shame that the rain cut the afternoon short!

Here's a lovely insight into #LifeAtCapitalOne - my whole tribe (the Grow tribe) have just received a lovely care package from the wonderful Team Building Committee, in lieu of an in-person "fun day". Small things like this make it such a lovely place to work πŸ’œ

A USB fan, a Dairy Milk Bar, a KitKat, a mug with the Grow tribe logo on it, a short note, and some bee-friendly wildflower sees

This is a top tip from @rikshawindian - if your customer orders a curry with Medium spice but you accidentally make it as a Hot, just update the writing on the container, as they won't be able to tell the difference when eating their lava πŸ”₯πŸ™„

Hey everyone, I've solved the biggest issue of the day. Y'all no longer need to worry, it's all good. #Morph is no longer chilly

I'm going to say that the paws pressed against my face are there lovingly as we have a little pre-bedtime cuddle

Been a good afternoon with Anna Dodson working through this puzzle from my birthday - hoping to continue picking away at it this coming week

My manager gave the team a mandate to go outside today, so here is proof I was outside - the local prison (the other one, not our house πŸ˜…) - with @anna_hax

Happy birthday to me! A lovely start to the morning opening cards with a champagne flute of Tango, with the wonderful https://annadodson.co.uk and #Morph

If you visit my site today you'll notice birthday balloons that I copied from Aaron Parecki this weekend at #IndieWebCamp London

Three birthday cards on a tray, circling a champagne flute that looks like it is full of bucks fizz but is actually Tango

Old Fashioned followed by a Bramble is a great start to a Saturday πŸ€™πŸ½

A frantic 5 talks in 5 minutes lightning talk from @MrAndrew is exactly what you'd expect from Andrew - but the best part was that you can optimise your quality of life by flushing the turds in your life!

Andrew with the quality of life circle - draw a circle, put a line through it and put people who make your life better above the line and those who don't below it

Throwback to 2 years ago, having my first meal out in public after a couple of months of recovery from my ruptured appendix

The #TechNott announcement is here - they're running seasons, with three months of amazing speakers planned.

This is yet another thing to show why the tech community in #Nottingham is booming - it's like a monthly mini conference!

Feel like I definitely need a siesta after this Legendary Local #HardRockCafe burger πŸ”πŸ˜‹πŸ˜΄ - burger with pulled pork, caramelised banana and the usual burger goodies, with a side of sriracha mayo and seasoned fries

Great to see @KrishBhasin championing #Firefox's amazing privacy protection tools, ie Multi Account Containers https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/ as a way to limit blast radius of tracking #TechNott

How can we assume that the layperson can say that they knowingly "opt in" to terms of service when they're incomprehensible, some great points in @KrishBhasin's talk at #TechNott tonight about the privacy implications of online advertising
