Here’s what I’m currently up to
💻 Currently working on:
- Migrating a Magento 1 site to Sylius (at Kaweb).
- Starting a new Laravel 8 project
- "The 4 Hour Body" by Tim Ferris (Amazon Link)
- "The Wind's Twelve Quarters" by Ursuka K. Le Guin (Gollanz SF Hardback) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- "Clanlands - Whisky, Warfare, and a Scottish Adventure Like No Other" by Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish (Audible) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this and am looking forwards to the Men in Kilts series on Amazon Prime soon.
- "The Silmarillion" by J.R.R Tolkien ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tough going but eventually finished it. If you want to understand the history of Tolkien's Middle Earth then this is the book for you.
- "The Sandman" by Neil Gaiman (Audible)⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman (Audio-book on Audible) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald (Audio-book on Audible) ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- "Artemis" by Andy Wier (Audio-book on Audible) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- "The Obstacle Is The Way" by Ryan Holiday [Amazon Link] ⭐️⭐️
- "Hidden Wyndham: Life, Love, Letters" by Amy Binns [Amazon Link] ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I'm a huge fan of John Wyndham's novels and enjoyed this book about his life and loves. Amy Binns has done a remarkable job of finding information on a man that kept his personal life so secret.
- "The Unicorn Project" by Gene Kim [Amazon link] ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A must for any software developer wanting to take the next step in their career.
- "How Not To Be A Professional Racing Driver" by Jason Plato [Amazon link] ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
An absolute hoot from start to the end. Jason is as funny off the track as he is fast on it.
Recently I've been digging in my crates and going through some of the more obscure records I've been donated over the years. My grandmother gave me her collection a while back and there are some gems in there. Imagination, Boney M (don't judge me!), and lots of original Neil Diamond LP's
I've set myself a challenge of walking 100 miles in August. If I walk from my house down the hill to the local park, do one lap of the park, and walk back up the hill I can do nearly 3.5 miles.
If I do this daily I should hit 100 miles by August 30th - giving me one day to miss!
