                     JOURNAL FOR TUESDAY 30TH APRIL, 2024

SUBJECT: It’s the little things…
   DATE: Wed  1 May 00:01:53 BST 2024

This is usually where I start to apologise profusely for not writing anything
or for not working on WolfMUD or some such…

I’m not going to this time.

I made a conscious decision not to write or work on WolfMUD, for a while.

The last couple of months have been absolutely awful. Too many things needing
immediate attention all at once. Then an unexpected, seriously expensive bill.
Family stuff. I really didn’t know which way to turn or if I should cry or
scream at the top of my lungs…

On top of that work has been… quiet. I’ve been keeping myself busy with some
Google Cloud Platform training courses. Somewhat interesting, but it’s not
programming. I am a programmer. I program. I have done for a very long time.

I needed some serious, quiet time just for me. I needed a complex programming
problem to sink my teeth into. Something to fire up the old grey matter and
get the creative juices flowing again.

So that is what I did. Just over two weeks ago I found myself a nice little
programming project — and I’ve been having an absolutely wonderful time.

What am I working on? Sorry, not telling, yet. But I’m happier now than I have
been in a very long while :)
