Week Notes 22#06

The week we applied to get a doggo!

  • After deciding that soon we'd start looking at getting a dog, we decided this week to put in the application to Paws2Rescue
    • We've fallen in love with quite a few dogs, and having to narrow them down has been difficult
    • The application took some time to do, but after a few days of constantly checking emails, we got the email to say we'd be a good fit this afternoon!
    • But was absolutely gutting to find out that our favourites Wabi, Lessie and Zina are all (in the process of being) adopted 😭
    • Spent a bit more time looking through Facebook and finding other cuties that'd fit with Morph, and sent off a reply this evening
  • May have bought some more creme eggs, as they were on offer 🙈
  • After lots of LinkedIn hits on my articles, I've started to auto-syndicate posts to Twitter, via Bridgy, as it's more likely that folks following me on Twitter care about my posts than they do on LinkedIn
  • Got a lovely Hawkins & Brimble gift set from Anna, which I'm looking forward to using and looking after myself a bit more
  • Been playing around with Spring Boot projects, putting a few things in practice that I've recently been doing which is good
  • A quieter week at work, doing bits and pieces between federated model work
  • Lots of evenings finishing off the wallpaper stripping
  • Not feeling the best towards the end of the week and needed the weekend to recover, but still not quite feeling amazing!
  • A good PHPMiNDS about OpenAPI contract testing
  • New season of Apex has been fun so far - playing lots of Control
  • Had a lovely Friday lunch out with Carol, and nice to have a bit more chance to spend with Juno, too

Listened to:

  • A fair few podcasts
  • Zak George's Dog Training Revolution


  • Queer Eye
