The Pro’s and Con’s of Working At Home
Since October 2006 I’ve been self employed doing web design & hosting with Chris / Salt & Light Solutions, the odd bit of computer repair work and, primarily, doing the day to day admin for PocketGPSWorld.com‘s speed camera database. The latter essentially being a full time job (along with app development, web site stuff, customer support etc). I wouldn’t change it for the world. Well, as the title suggests, working […]
For those thinking “it’ll be Christmas by the time he blogs again” well, you’re wrong. But not too far from the truth though! Been stupidly busy sorting out poorly kids and poorly me as well as trying to get stuff sorted for the Christmas play I stupidly agreed to do… I’ve been pretty busy with work stuff to – lots to do with PocketGPSWorld.com as usual but I’ve also recently […]
These last two days have been a rollercoaster of mixed emotions. Yesterday morning we found out that a good friend of Mrs-MaFt and myself had died suddenly and very unexpectedly. She was only 31 and has left behind a husband and 3 young boys (11 weeks, 3 years and 5 years). We still can’t really believe it but have to try and get on. This morning was the total opposite […]
Well, I feel like David Beckham at the moment. We have a date for the Caesaeaeaserereasn Section (lots of problems with Mini-MaFt’s birth so we’ve been told Mrs-MaFt can have a CS again!) – it’s really weird cos the consultant said to us “so, is the 26th April OK for you?” but I was expecting them to just give us a date! I can make it to the big football […]
So Much To Do!
Both Mini-MaFt and Mrs-MaFt are ill… great… puke and poo everywhere! Seriously! It has just dawned on me how much I need to get done this week! Not only have I work to do but I also need to get some decorating done at the In-Laws. Then on top of that, tomorrow night we’re off to St Georges Hall in Bradford to see ‘Love So Amazing 2‘ – a collection […]
Had a pretty busy week last week! Monday we headed over to Blackpool to see the lights – I’m sure they get slacker each year… I remember the North end used to have loads of big displays at the roadside but there’s only about 10 or so now. Maybe it’s cos I’m getting older and everything seems much bigger and more fascinating when you’re younger! Mini-MaFt enjoyed himself even though […]
Finally started working!
Right, I’ve spent the best part of the day on my new job. Working on behalf of www.PocketGPSWorld.com. I’ve still got some bits to get used to and learn but I seem to be getting the hang of it so far. The good thing is I’m working from home so can listen to music all day long too! So, if you visit the site during the day you’re actually likely […]
Feel Better For That
Well, I’ve got to admit I feel a lot calmer now I’ve actually seen Grandma. It was a long drive to get down there but was worth it. She was very drugged up on pain killers but we managed to get a few grins from her and an almost ‘hello’. Thing is, I didn’t want to leave – it was like an admission that that was it I suppose. I’dhave […]
Grandma, We Love You!
Well, I was going to be starting the new job today but we’re now having to drive down to Reading. Grandma is essentially on her death bed so work has been cancelled and re-arranged for Friday. It aint gonna be nice going to see someone and saying ‘bye’ when you know you’ll never see them again. With her living so far away it’s been hard getting to see her, but […]
