What I done did in September 2022

Started a new role at work

Got conned by Manscaped

Annoyingly what I was sent was completely different to what was advertised and what I had previously received so I was really pissed off and because underwear is one of those items that’s hard to get a refund on I’m now awaiting Manscaped to refund me my money but I’m sure that will go nowhere and I’ll have to rely on PayPal to help me out (I’m just thankful I used PayPal this time to pay).

All manner of things happened in the UK

I have no idea what October is going to contain but I hope it’s a little quieter.

Ported my Medium blogs over to Gatsby

It was quite a fun little project as I got to play around with the unified , rehype and remark libraries which I’d never used before and as these are used by Gatbsy it’s given me a better understanding of how that framework transforms it’s datasources into a static site.

Purchased an iPhone 14 Pro

I’ll likely write a comparison review when I get it and how the new picture formats fit into my self-hosted setup.

Had my last day at work for three months

I’ll be writing my plans and concerns around my sabbatical next week as there are a few things that I want to do and also avoid but I’m really fortunate to have the opportunity to take the time off and thankful for my workplace for giving employees the chance to do this.
