I watched Howl’s Moving Castle with my youngest daughter this morning.

We’ve now watched all the movies of Hayao Miyazaki that she’s old enough to watch.

Watching these movies with her, some of them many times, is a memory I’ll bring with me long after she has left home. ❤️

Talking about the Apple Watch ⌚️, yesterday I got my first Braided Solo Loop band.

Apple Watch with Braided Solo Loop band

The band fits perfectly and is really comfortable. A bit expensive, but so have some of the other bands been.

I’m really glad I looked at the sizing guide at Daring Fireball.

Has frontend become much more complex the last couple of years? Absolutely!

My dad died on Thursday. He was found dead in his bed at the hospital.

He’d been sick for a long time, with cancer, but he had beaten every prognosis many times. Not anymore.

My dad was a good dad.

My son (8) had a widget showing a single number on his iPhone.

I asked what it was.

“It’s the number of days until Trump is gone.”

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Will of the Wisps features on many best of year lists for Switch in 2020. Having not played the first game in the series, that’s where I started.

I remember buying Ori and the Blind Forest at launch, but never playing it.

An hour into the game, I’m mad at myself for not starting this Metroidvania game sooner.

This game looks and feels great!

I’ve never had less time to play games than in 2020, but I have to find time to play this. It’s so much fun.
