15 February

The website for the client is taking a lot longer than I anticipated.  I have spent the past few weeks working on.

Things are moving in the right direction.


I’m arranging to transfer one of my stocks and shares ISA to my other one.  I don’t feel there is any point in having funds in two different ones.  I completed the form and posted it this morning so I imagine it will take a few weeks to complete.

I am currently sitting in the library working on the business, apart from writing this entry.

I have been certified off work by the GP again next week.  I had a hearing test today and I have lost some of the top tones.  I have to attend a more in-depth test which is free.

It will soon be time to start work in the garden.  It has been milder this week.  There is a lot to do in the garden and there are a lot of leaves.  Some of these seem to have been blown by the wind.

I am currently not at work because my tinnitus is quite bad at present and the GP ttold me tto self-certify and then she will give me a certificate forr two weeks.  It is a high pitched noise I hear and this goes on all the tiime.  I don’t notiice it when I am asleep.

I am trying to relax and have been using the Headspace app and this helps.  Currently in the garden centre which I used to go to. I needed to get out of the house for a while .

I have been working for my client for a few weeks building a website for them.  There is a lot more work to do on it.  At the moment I think it might take another six weeks to complete.



Saturday 26 January – Our only limitations …

Napoleon Hill Quote

I have been on holiday this week.  I was hoping to make more progress but it took a while to find and review software which I need to build the current website.  I purchased various software packages this week.  One of them is not doing what I need it to.  I have contacted their support team and hope to have a response on Monday.  I have worked hard this week and feel frustrated that this project is taking longer than I wanted and I was hoping to be a lot further forward.

It has been good to see my brother-in-law over the last few days.  He is on his way home on various flights and total flying time is around 26 hours, not allowing for the stops.

I purchased a three pack of the BT Whole Home WiFi dishes this week.  They work very well.  We used to have poor reception in one part of our stone property but this seems to be resolved.  Once set up, the dishes work out where you are and move you across to the closest dish.  You don’t notice this happening and is very good.

My daughter announced this week she is getting married in August in the UK and then having a celebration in Spainfor her fiancees family.  My son announced he is moving to Germany later this year.  Once he moves out, the house will be a lot quieter and the bills will be lower.


I am back to work on Monday and not looking forward to it.  I will push ahead with my project so I can work for myself as soon as possible.

Napolean Hill Quote


I am not doing badly posting this year, compared with last year and hope to post regularly.

I have an app on my phone which gives daily inspirational quotes from Napolean Hill. This week I have spent a few evenings trying to find software which will meet my needs for the site I am building for my client.  I have contacted a few companies and now have two options which I have been advised will work.  One is about £350 each year and the other is £250.  The cheaper one has a live demo site where I can try things out.  I am hoping this will work due to the difference in price.

I was at work and had some training last week.  This week I have a week’s holiday.  There are many things I need to do, maybe not want to do, but I need to get on with them.

Just a short post this week.  The week has been tied up with the things mentioned above and also my brother-in-law has flown back to the UK for a week to see his parents.  It’s a 23 hours flight so he was quite tired with the flight and the 12 hour time difference.
