As I’m going to be in a co-working space over the next few months, I set up an Algo VPN today. Took a while to get going (my fault: RTFM!) but was ultimately pretty simple.

WireGuard made setup easy on MacOS and iOS too.

Thanks to @javorszky for advice and help!!

I didn’t say in my #weeknotes, but I’ve been getting myself sorted with PHPCS and coding standards. It’s a little set up to get up and running (Sublime was easier than PHPStorm) but I’m really into it now. I love that it takes away micro-decisions about formatting.

I just used the phrase “being a bit Theresa May about it” to refer to something I’m procrastinating about making a decision over.

I know I’ll sound like a snob but I was a bit sad to only submit one talk to WordCamp London. The thing is, I have REALLY high standards. I had several ideas but only one that I could imagine being interesting and entertaining as a talk.

Actually properly playing with Statamic tonight. A few “huh, really?” moments. But mostly good and the documentation is excellent. The only thing I can’t do (easily) is something that I probably can’t do easily in WordPress either.

Never-to-be-repeated parenting moment.

4 balloons – 4 kids

Me: Let’s have one each
Child 1: I want the pink one!
(Me, thinking: Oh crap)
C2: I want the yellow one!
(Me: this will end in tears)
C3: I want the blue one!
Me (to C4): Which do you want?
C4: The red one!

Heard some stuff about quitting list-making and celebrating successes.

Perhaps to-do app have a β€œbackwards” mode where tasks are greyed out and struck through to show when INcomplete, and revealed and highlighted in black once complete to show β€œYay! You did this!”

Second #WednesdayWonders : My family, of course. I’m biased but I think they are the most beautiful, smart, brilliant, funny, creative people I know. Seeing my boy thrive at school is πŸ’―. Seeing my girl dance through life is πŸ™Œ. Seeing my wife nailing work + parenting is 😍

First #WednesdayWonders : cycling and exercise. I’ve been injured for a few weeks and unable to cycle to work. I REALLY miss it. Heart pounding, blood flowing through my veins, the freedom of flowing through the world under your own power.

Hoping to be back soon. πŸš΄πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

I know this will sound all fluffy & Marie-Kondo, But the last few weeks have been pretty…πŸ€”…overcast? I’m making an effort today to focus on what brings me joy & makes me feel alive. Why not tweet your things too?

This needs a hashtag. How about #WednesdayWonders ?
