Everyday Carry

I’ll be starting a new job in a few weeks time and this has lead me to think about my everyday carry again. I’m a bit of a carry nerd, and I like to have all the things I’m likely to want during the day available and conveniently transported.

Elgato Eve

I've written previously about our recent delve into home automation. The real star of this endeavour has been a company called Elgato, who you may have heard of if you're into realtime video capture and gaming accessories but otherwise likely haven't really come across.


I am resigning from my job at a company where I have worked for almost thirteen years. I started as a software tester, following the only real job interview I have ever had, and I've held a couple of roles during my time here.

Bullet Journal

I've started a Bullet Journal. I've always kept a physical notebook to hand; sometimes it's more situation appropriate and easier than typing on a smartphone. I'm hoping that I can combine the way I write notes with some simple task management.


I've been wearing glasses since the 8th of January. I was actually pretty excited to get them. I'd known that my sight had been slowly getting worse for years and now I'm pleased with them both for their function and their style.

The MacBook

I've been using a MacBook for almost a year now. Specifically the new 12" ultraportable MacBook. I previously owned a Retina MacBook Pro, and before that an early model of the MacBook Air. The new MacBook is easily my favourite computer to date.
