Welcome Foolish Mortals

Spoopy Season!...

Just spent the last 10 minutes trying to figure out why the hell this new blog post wouldn’t render on Hugo.

Turns out when you put the date format in, and you put it inj as “2023-10-9” it won’t work. It won’t error either. But it won’t work.

So I’ve fixed it now, after trying two different browsers, looking around recent Hugo bugs (I just updated). Too many changes all at once. We don’t like to many changes all at the same time. It muddies the waters.

At least it hasn’t been three months since my last post here.

That’s something at least.

I’m sat here on my way down to London, for one of the last work trips I’ll be doing (as I have a new job starting next year).

I’m wearing an awesome Haunted Mansion RSVLTS shirt, of which I have purchased many in the last 6 months or so.

They are amazing. Great designs, comfy, allow me to look smart AND express my personality. They’ve just made some changes though that mean we’re looking at over $100 per shirt now delivered to the UK so I’m not going to be able to buy as many as I usually would. It’s probably for the best. It might even save me some money.

Speaking of changes, they’ve made some changes to the LNER first class food menu. Gone are the sausage rolls (They were nice) and the chicken sandwiches. There’s just an Egg Florentine roll now and a toasted teacake along with a casserole and a vegetable masala.

Breakfast is much better. The bacon rolls are great. The only thing is you have to be travelling pre 12. Sometimes even pre 11. So we’ll see what options I’ve got on Thursday. At least I can have a toasted teacake if all else fails.

Not sure what travel will look like in the new role - to be honest, there’s been a lot less travel in this role over the last 6-8 months or so. I think this might be the penultimate trip. There’s one more scheduled in for November. Hopefully London itself will be a little less busy than it had been in the Summer months. Things got a little crazy at times, especially around Covent Garden - and especially compared to how things were when I first started to travel down here.

Don’t think I’ll be coming down in December. Probably. Unless I can squeeze something in right at the start. We’ll see.

Anyway, updating. Not a lot to report. Thinking about whether or not this is something I want to continue on with. Jury is still out.
