Ted Lasso – not really spoilers

Ted Lasso continues to delight and entertain. I’m loving how the minor characters have developed: Leslie, Jade, Barbara. Just excellent and (other than the swearing) wholesome telly.

Oh right. This was actually because of the stupid VPN I got so that I could safely use the internet from coffee shops.

Our primary school teachers have my utmost respect. It's sad that they have to put so much time and effort into getting 10/11 year olds to pass a stupid set of government-mandated tests that are more about the school (and probably the government) than the children.

I can't help but thing that outcomes would be better if year 6 was things like fun and interesting (yes, it is once the SATs are done!).

So I swapped my small-size Apple Watch with a rubber strap for one with a larger case and fabric strap. Thoughts after a week or so:
– Do they really have to ship this around the world on 5 flights? 😬😬😬
– Battery life is actually OK. I think I can live with it.
– It’s definitely achieving my main goal of keeping my phone in my pocket/bag.
– I will also REALLY refine my notifications.
– The music app is just terrible, isn’t it?
– And seriously… these straps are BAD design! Epic overengineering.

I have a problem…

I have a new tennis instructor…

I’ve been in beginners class for ages. I’m not quite consistent enough to move up to “intermediate”.

But the two weeks he’s been teaching me…

I’ve been REALLY good! Even my serves are going in!!

I’m really quite scared I’ll be promoted!! 😬

How do Apple – masters of design that they are – continue to make such a completely over-complicated hash of Music and Photos?

I will never understand.

Trying out the Spotlight-like ”Command Center” in (in Gutenberg plugin v15.6.

Nothing to see here. Move along. It's too early.

Keep using Turbo Admin!

Also: Why does WordPress have to name things differently to every other project? No one has a "Command Center”!

Minor Ted Lasso Spoiler

Oh my. Jamie teaching Roy to ride a bike is the funniest thing I’ve seen this year. 😂😂😂

Oh my. Now the sleepover kids are trying to play Mario Kart. They’ve spent about 15 minutes just setting up the game rules. I think they are now making rules about how to make the rules. 😂

I’ve solved our energy crisis and saved the planet.

All we need to do is find a way to harness the unlimited energy output of children having sleepovers!! Infinite, clean, renewable energy for all.

There must be a way, and I’ll happily invest.

I'm not a big reader of novels. And I'm very slow. But I have got totally hooked on Sally Hinchcliffe's Hare House this weekend. So well written, gripping, atmospheric, evocative and gosh I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!

I am DEVOURING its pages like nothing before.
