Puppies grow up

Amina (who you’ll remember was previously named ‘Amiina’, and has subsequently lost an ‘i’ but fortunately not an eye) is 17 weeks old today, and is growing fast. She’s eating meat, bonemeal, vegetables and a little fruit. Great fun. Preparing her dinner us just as much fun as cooking for people (a little grated carrot, […]

Not just a Min

Mrs Roo and I picked up a Labradoodle puppy yesterday. We have named her Amiina (after one of our favourite Icelandic bands), but she is already also known as Min and sometimes Minnie. Her mother is a chocolate brown lab, and her dad a black show poodle. At 11 weeks old she is very labrador-like. […]

A trip down memory lane

This weekend was a trip down memory lane, for my parents at least. I wasn’t even born when they lived in Wandsworth, but Rachel and I enjoyed joining them on a tour of their old haunts on Saturday. On Saturday night we celebrated Uncle Terry’s 40th birthday, and it was excellent to meet my brother’s […]

Real, or rendering?

My brother, Sam Reynolds, is a stunningly good graphic artist who specialises in 3D, though he’s also annoying good with Photoshop and v-jaying with vvvv. His job has even involved designing skate parks in 3D Studio Max. He recently emailed me some renders he’s been working on. Would you believe that this is not a […]

Mr and Mrs O’Leary

Nick and Jo got married on Saturday. I was the best man. Nick did the decent thing and set up a Flickr photo pool so we can share photos of their special day. All of this makes me smile.

Moving house

Today is my last day on the internet until Friday. This is unusual for me these days (even short holidays are liable to lead to symptoms of withdrawal) but the reason is a good one; my wife and I are moving house. I mentioned back at the end of August that we’d put our flat […]

New router

While I was away last week my wife had to cope with a dying wireless router, which began fizzing to signify the end of its useful life. I’m not a hardware expert, but I’ve always believed routers shouldn’t fizz. A quick trip to the local peripherals shop, and we are the proud new owners Belkin […]

Surfing stag weekend

I had the huge honour this weekend of organising Nick‘s stag do. I wanted to do something he’d really enjoy, and as I knew he was a bit of a surfer a weekend in Woolacombe seemed ideal. Seven of us squeezed into a cute little log cabin on Friday night before surfing all day on […]

Internet People dinner

I was invited to attend an Internet People dinner at Adam Street (just off the Strand) last night. The room was chock full of interesting internet people. The companies represented included New Media Knowledge, Inspiring Eve, Squiz, Directgov, Monochrome, Mint Digital, Sub Hub, Last.fm and The Friday Project. The food, wine and company were superb. […]
