Orchid diary 10/07/19

I’ve realised my orchids need an environment that replicates their natural habitat more. I need high humidity, warm temperature and air movement. To solve the lack of humidity here I invested £10 in a room humidifier. I didn’t need a big one nor did I want to top up the water within the humidifier every day. I found one that...

Orchid diary 02/07/19

The mounted orchid on a plant is probably drying out, the set up doesn’t seem to hold any moisture. It might be fine and happy but I’m not sure. I mounted the first orchid horizontally since I thought this would be more natural but i’ve read that a lot of varieties grow vertically. No worries, I have another orchid to...

Orchid diary! 27/06/19

I’ve never been able to successfully keep shop bought orchids alive in the past and so haven’t really considered getting any more. However recently I saw some reduced orhids in the supermarket and just had to get some. Could be the start of another short-lived obsession. I think like every plant I’ve ever owned I over water too much. Seems...

Back to gaming?

I came home from work and the wife said she had a present for me. I don’t like presents! I feel uncomfortable receiving them and never remember to buy any for others. I feel as though my random daily thoughts override my social obligations – I think (actually I get a reminder on my phone!) about buying some flowers for...

Clothes shopping experience

I thought I would write this as I sit down in a massive Primark clothes store. For those of you that don’t know it’s a large budget clothing chain that years ago had a documentary revealing the poor conditions that the clothes makers worked in. It’s hot in here (lovely and sunny but breezy outside) and too many people just...

Matilda theatre production

Wow, what an experience! I can’t say I’ve been to many theatre productions but this was just amazing. I haven’t read the Roald Dahl original book but have read others of his to my children. What a legend. His books that I’ve read are for children who like the disgusting. Retched characters and rotten things are what children like and...

Sorry environment!

I like to consider myself a bit of an environmentalist and understand the harm that beef production causes to the planet. This photograph is of a delicious steak with porcini mushroom sauce that I consumed and really enjoyed. I am just posting this so that if I rant too much on environmental issues you can call me a hypocrite. I’m...

What is an INTP?

I don’t want to speak for others but I feel what I describe would be true for most INTPs. Ever said to yourself: “he is soo much like…”, noticed that two people are so alike it’s uncanny? Ever thought why people vote the way they do or why people see the world differently? A lot of this can be explained...

My personality journey

How did I end up labelling myself with various personality terminology? I remember reading an article about introverts in the workplace because one of my staff used to sit in a quiet corner at lunch time. I never considered myself an introvert or even really thought about it. Reading the article I started to feel goose bumps, the article was...
