The very talented Peter Day at Morphsites finished our patreon badges this sprint too!
Developing such a huge platform, dealing with community issues, sharing my insights as an entrepreneur and keeping up to date with things all on top of a full time job is hard work! So this sprint I took time off for myself to get out of the rat race.
After all the time in lock I finally got to see my mum, who is in the very vulnerable group for Covid-19. It was lovely sitting with her for hours, having a coffee and just catching up. Even just having a hug was amazing to be honest.
I had a fantastic day having a BBQ with some friends, some of which are chefs and the food was incredible. But most importantly it was great to spend time with people I haven’t seen properly in months.
Fun fact, during lock down I got so fed up with how much hair I had that I took a shaver to my head. Apparently, I’m not very good at shaving the back of my head and so ended up with a wonky hair cut.
So… I got my hair cut!
I also spent a LOT of my time gaming. Starting with Detroit: Becoming Human, moving on to Shadow of the Colossus and then sinking far more hours than I care to admit in Destiny 2 and Civilization 5!
Anyway, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this little update from my fortnight off and thank you for supporting and being patient with me through this journey 🥰
