Savings Mode

Mar 10, 2005 by glennji

We’re well and truly into “savings” mode at the moment. We have a financial plan, and a budget for the trip, and we’re just counting down the days until our flight. Oh, there’s still more to do before then - much more - but it’s close enough to be exciting. And of course, in the midst of all this penny-pinching, Dee has found herself some new shoes.

They’re not exactly hiking boots - in fact, they’re rather slippery (she’s nearly fallen whilst sliding around on the kitcfhen tiles) - but they’re still rather nice I think. She’s been looking for something similar for ages now, and these came from Planet Shoes. They do some vegan products too, which is cool.

NAS to see you!

After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.
