Got a pretty positive appraisal on Wednesday; looks like they've not checked the webserver logs for my username yet... the manager chap seems happy that I can cope with problems, even if they're caused by my own incompetence, which is nice. Managed to get an "exceeds expectations" overall which may bode well for future financial gains at the end of the year. Also promised a title change from "Developer" to "Senior Developer". Extra responsibility but no guaranteed extra cash - fantastic!
was on Monday. Continually amazed at the fact that I'm still alive - 28 years so far and no sign of slowing down (well, apart from the hangovers getting worse, and my deteriorating eyesight, and various weird stress-related spasms).
Amongst other gifts, got fifty quid worth of B&Q vouchers from the parents (can you tell I bought a house recently?) with which I plan on buying a drill. Any recommendations?
Best present without a doubt from the gf: I got me a hammock. Not any hammock, but a triple-weave cotton Chacmool Hammock which we plan on installing in the garden. It's all fair trade as well which hopefully means some poor Mexican folks are getting along slightly better as a result!
Also got a trip to XScape at Milton Keynes where I had an hour of practising my snowboarding skills, which was excellent. Also watched Batman Begins which I actually rather enjoyed; certainly better than I had expected.
Took some photos at the recent car expo at Canary Wharf; most desirable motorised carriage award went to the Ford GT:
However, in my opinion my best picture was this Land Rover:
I almost feel that could be brochure material, and that's without any fancy extra lighting. What do you think?
