Great time yesterday with +Emily Payne at Elsie's Cafe in Northampton - great food all lovingly made from recovered ingredients that would otherwise have been thrown away by shops and markets! If you're ever in the area I heartily recommend dropping in :) 
Rescuing food from going to landfill in Northampton. Pay As You Feel concept.

I have had multiple bouts of depression and acute anxiety. But I am still here and I am stronger than ever. If you have been through, or are going through, mental health issues, or just want to show your support, please join me and thousands of others and post your selfie for ‪#‎smileagainstthestigma‬ 1st of April 2015 :)

It's the first anniversary of "Now I Know", so it seems a good time to recommend you what has been one of my favourite finds this year - an interesting, informative and well-written article in your email every day on an infinite variety of surprising topics :) (and he's a nice bloke too) http://nowiknow.com/

I enjoy it every day. And he's a genuinely lovely guy - I've often emailed him back about various things in the posts (it comes from his personal email) and he always replies.

And you watched Matt's video below, right? :)

So, bit of a milestone yesterday - I got on a bus and went out to Northampton, the same journey that triggered the huge panic attack which pretty much kicked me into this period of anxiety. Had a few collywobbles the previous afternoon and in the morning, but it all went smoothly, was pretty much happy once I was on the bus and overjoyed when I got there, felt like a real mark of how far I've come.

I'm still having little random spikes of anxiety from time to time but I feel like I have the tools to deal with them now and they're a lot less scary, they soon pass once I get to the root and really breathe and work through them.

Still doing lots of yoga from videos and class on Thursday night, still loving it - great for head and body :) Unfortunately I'm having to take a bit of a break from swimming as muscle soreness in my chest just isn't shifting; had a quite gentle session on Sunday morning but ended up aching painfully and even today it's not fully eased off; problem is I don't seem to be able to tell while I'm swimming now hard I've worked the muscles until it's too late. Going to give it a few more days and just do yoga, work around the area apart from gentle stretches.

Okay, I guess I'm just going to keep asking this question, as I did again on the 6th - what's happening to the mini toolbar you told us would be coming back last autumn? I and others have asked this question over and over, in the blog comments, here and in numerous other places, and every time you just ignore it. Why do you refuse to comment or give us any idea what you're doing with this much-loved and much-missed feature? It's a simple question, and refusing to answer it just seems weird and secretive!

Hi guys. Not sure if this should be here or in "New features" or "Bugs" - what's the word on the Mini Toolbar? It's been missing for months, it was supposed to be back in at the end of last year...could you at least give us an update?

Anyone frustrated by the new block on non-market Chrome plugins: You can bypass this by dragging the file onto the Extensions page itself.

Everything suddenly happening much slower and clearer. Either I just had my first proper night's sleep in three weeks or that cup of coffee had meth in it.

Sooo, turns out the near-impossible deadline (tomorrow) for this website redesign got changed to next Wednesday at some point this week. Client didn't feel the need to mention this to me, of course. Well, at least now I can relax.

Story
Introduction

I'm a former IT technician, security guard, cleaner, railway ticket inspector, graduate in Psychology and Art History, and a geek, foodie, philosopher, web designer, shaman and writer. So far. I'm from Bedford, England and I'm 29.

At the start of 2007 I decided to sell or give away everything I owned and travel round the world for an indefinite period of time with just a backpack and a craving for adventure.

I hitch-hiked across two thirds of Canada and the United States and a good chunk of Mexico, appeared in a rodeo, saw a killer whale from a tiny fishing boat, camped in the Black Rock Desert with seventy-five thousand people for a week (twice), spent forty-eight hours straight on a Greyhound bus, saw Bob Dylan perform live in Texas, toured NASA, ate alligator in New Orleans, celebrated Thanksgiving on a ranch, studied yoga in Vegas, and lived in San Francisco for nine months while working as a cleaner by day and a bouncer by night.

I'm currently working as a freelance web designer, but I'll shortly be retraining as a life coach!
