March was ... March. Changeable, erratic, unpredictable. Good things on the bicycle, taking the train somewhere and cycling to a different train station. Movement among the plants on the terrace. Good fun and some entertaining podcasts made.

Highlights of the month:

  • Home-made lemon curd from home-grown lemons
  • Getting closer to photos all processed
  • Dinners cooked for friends
  • Macro to make work notes easier
  • Signed up for Komoot to guide bicycle rides
  • Which prompted a program to draw a static map with photo markers
  • Celebratory Guinness for St Patrick's
  • Repotting continues
  • Judicious POSSE to Mastodon


Steps down a little and HIIT too, because cycling. Less time in bed and asleep as the days grow longer. Weight bad, which I put down to eating out on Tuesdays. (I weigh on Wednesdays)

Stuff Done

Hard to put my finger on anything super-specific. Even so, it felt like a good month, overall. I missed out on the IndieWeb Carnival this month, probably because I do not have much to say on accessibility in the small web and my site is by no means an exemplar of good practice. Might be the first month in which hours logged to podcasting exceeded hours logged to administration.

Nine posts this month, which is encouraging.


Yet more bicycle rides needed.

Final remarks

Going into some serious travelling, and trying to be positive about keeping things buzzing online. But maybe not.
