363/365 Just Dance

363/365 Just Dance by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA One of Ruby’s little Christmas Eve presents was this second-hand Wii game – Just Dance.

354/365 Ingenuity Centre by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA I went to my very first conference today. I’m nearly fifty years old and have never made it to one before. This is mostly due to tight-arsed employers (everyone I’ve ever worked for has failed to pay when I’ve requested to go to one) and…… Continue reading 354/365 Ingenuity Centre
