  1. Who made you feel good this week, and how?
    My line manager made me feel appreciated and valued. An ex-colleague made specific plans to hang out with me twice in the next five weeks and that made me feel good about people wanting to spend time with me even though I’m always tired.

  2. What did you do this week that moved you closer to reaching your goals?
    Arranged a meeting with my Big Boss. Well, I don’t know if the meeting will actually move me closer to my goals, but the act of setting aside a specific time to talk about it was a step I’d been putting off for ages.

  3. What did you most enjoy doing this week?
    Calibrating Cluster magnetometer data.

  4. What did you learn this week?
    I learnt that there are a lot of ways to arrange the wires and pads in a flip-and-wire mounting of a SMD (surface mount device) on a PCB (printed circuit board), and that they are all ugly. Some are more compact than others, but there is never going to be anything pretty about big blobs of Scotchweld.

    Hey, you asked.

  5. What’s the funniest thing that happened to you this week?
    [Bodily function TMI alert] Keiki pooped himself whilst he was asleep. He came downstairs for his breakfast, and Humuhumu and I went, “Phwoar, Keiki!” Then the three of us spontaneously burst into a rendition of Keiki’s classic song Poo in the Night.

    Parenting: so awesome

It was not ideal. He's actually been mostly dry/clean at night for a few weeks now, and until this happened I was considering dropping the night-time nappy. But now I'm not so sure...!

Hahahahaaa how is that even possible? I'm trying to imagine how drunk/high I'd have to be for the effort of it not to wake me up. Unless he just has really watery poo that comes out without any effort? Or he sleeps like the dead.

I don't know. It's a special baby/toddler skill. Sigh.

He does sleep like the dead - it's not easy to wake him up!
