  • Wins and losses

    This was my last Sunday with my family before they fly away and I don’t see them for a month, so I took Destroyer and La Serpiente out for pancakes, and after that went off climbing. Serving me right for this neglect of fatherly duties, my scooter skidded after I’d gone over a bit of […]

  • Swimming Lesson #37

    The skies turned dark and it began to pelt down with rain about 6:30, and my phone was out of battery so I couldn’t call a cab, which meant this may have been the first swimming lesson where I got wetter after I left the pool than when I was in it.

  • A wet start

    This morning, after having a reasonable amount of sleep, I got my bike out of our bomb shelter and prepared to ride it to work. Outside the sky was darkening and the wind was whistling, but I only needed 15 minutes to get to the office. Except the tyres were flat after my bike being […]

  • And back again…

    I left the office early today: I’d hoped to fit in some climbing, but that was derailed by meetings that kept appearing and distracting me from getting away. Eventually though I got on a badly maintained hire bike and raced home, arriving just before my wife left to collect Destroyer from school. That left me […]

  • A hot start to a cold wet day

    I woke up at just before 5 this morning, went down to the lobby to call my wife, then took a Lyft over to Corepower Yoga, a studio on Fremont Street, about ten minutes’ drive from Union Square. A hot yoga session had been organised for keen conference participants, and as I wasn’t going to […]

  • Another First Day

    Another First Day

    Today was Destroyer’s first day of school. It was also a day during monsoon season, which meant we woke at 7 to the relaxing sound of rainfall, and looked out the window to see that Singapore had vanished in a cloud of mist. At that point, the rain wasn’t so heavy, but cold rain on […]

  • Bad neck

    I must have strained something while I was swimming, because even in the car on the way to the Affordable Art Fair my neck was hurting, and by the time I got home last night I could hardly move my head. The pain went on and on; although I’d drunk a couple of bottles of […]

  • Apresdeluvian run

    I went to MacRitchie Reservoir for a run today. It was an easy choice; the Formula One race means any running route near Marina Bay is needlessly complicated, running to Mount Faber would be horrendously boring, and although MacRitchie is hilly and humid, it’s also fun to be running down a rocky path where you’re […]

  • Much Ado About Nothing Much

    I found my hat, where I’d hidden it under a piece of cloth at some point in the last week, and now there is balance in the world again. That was about the most momentous thing that happened today.

  • Off to Dorset

    I ran the Crystal Palace Parkrun in the morning in just over 23 minutes, the slowest I’ve ever run it, then drove home, packed my wife in the car and drove to Dorset. I didn’t warm down. This would turn out to be a mistake.
