Creating events calendar and updating status page

I have now created an events page. You will be able to keep up to date with all of my events, and talks. My plan is to do at least 3 fundraising events this year, and with social media hiding lots of content, I thought it would be easier to add it here. You can head on over to Events, as well as look at the sidebar. Some events will be TBC until more details are confirmed, and others will be there straight away.

My new PC setup (Surface Pro 3)

My desktop PC is playing funny buggers, so I've had to switch it out. I'm now using my Surface Pro 3 which I've had for a few years and used it on and off. My wife was very reluctant for the switch, because of the Pro 3 having such a small screen. After reassuring her that we can still use our two monitors, I went and purchased the correct cables. Two mini display-ports to HDMI that are purchased on Amazon by Rankie.

Smol Laundry tablet review

My wife and I have been enjoying Smol tablets for 4 months. They're a laundry and dishwasher tablet service which you can subscribe to, and they're fairly inexpensive. You can get your first month for free (you just need to pay £1 for delivery), and if you're unhappy, you can cancel straight away.
