Christmas panto today. Always a little bit boring in the middle but the songs are fun. I have no idea what they’re saying when speaking Doric.

Finally setup my main blog with Hugo static site. It’s what I’ve actually been wanting to do for a long time, but just never got round to it. I’ve taken a detour through wordpress, ghost, tiddlywiki, blot, even, but now it’s back as a static site. I do need to migrate old content over to it. It handles images much nicer than anything else I’ve had with static sites, so that’s good. Will it mean I write more on it? Probably not, but then Wordpress and Ghost didn’t make me write more and they’re the easiest ever.

Probably I only have enough time/effort to write in one place, and this usually takes it. It’s also a lot easier to write in. I just make a new page and type. No title, or tags, or summary or making a joined up post that makes sense. Here it’s just a new paragraph and that’s a new thought or item. Probably I should just migrate that blog HERE and be done with it. I worry about finding things again or other people’s impressions or thoughts about it. Why? No idea. But I do. I know it’s dumb, as no-one has bad thoughts about this site as no-one reads it 😅 I actually like regular blogs with categories and things for me to go back and look. But maybe that’s what the wiki should be for? Anyway the new ones is static, and that’s all that matters.

My half-sister will be 21 in January. Thought about trying to write some “life advice” that I wish someone told me when I was 21. But I worry I’ll be too boring.

I don’t do well reading non-fiction books. I’m on page 14 of my latest one that I bought a week ago. I keep having “so many other things to do”. Which is really just me making those things more important and reading it less important. I’m trying to read some more of it today by writing this on my ipad then PUTTING THE IPAD DOWN AND READING THE BOOK. 🙄

We’ll see how that ends out. Especially as I’ve had the thought about that letter and now I want to write out some notes for it, and then I wanted to watch the rest of that Russia documentary on BBC and then…………………
