You know what would be great? A little shelf outside my office door. That way when I'm coming back from the kitchen with a hot beverage and need to fish out my keys, I wouldn't have to awkwardly balance the mug or put it on the floor.

That would be great.

The film project I've been working on just made the news. It's been so incredible. I made all the music which features so prominently in the film. On the weekend we've got a series of three sold out screenings with live score. Feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing experience.

At this stage of my life, She-Hulk was more immediately accessible than Ms Marvel because I know more angry women lawyers than 16 year old Muslim girls.

Which is, you know, kind of a thing.

To be fair, I know no one with full on super-powers, though.

food, cheesmaking 

Cheesemaking today - I started with about 3 litres of milk yesterday. After culturing, renneting, and hanging overnight I have about 800 gm of curds.

Half is in the press, and will go into heavily salted whey later, for a feta style.

The other half got mixed with rosemary and is destined for pizza in the next few days.

You have one month left to grab your copy of The Highwayman, a 100-page adaptation of Alfred Noyes’ poem exploring narrative illustration through a graphic design lens!

Initially drawn in 2020 as part of my Master’s thesis, I came back to this book this year to revise and improve it. Many pages have been redrawn to improve the reading experience.

Temperatures are down. No rain yet, which is a drag. And fires in the county. Lovely ...

Things I will not need to do today:
put the bread in the proofing box to rise

Already 36C outside in Norfolk ...

not too bad inside with the curtains drawn.

Every now and then I am reminded that Dave Grohl is the bomb.

That is all.

Except that in Latin there is no way no distinguish between being a bomb and being Da Bomb.

And Dave Grohl is Da Bomb.
