Journal – April 2006

April 2021 Introduction:

It’s time to rewind 15 years exactly as we look at another set of entries from my old journal. This was the month we got broadband at home for the first time, I got some equipment to help me do my job from Access To Work, and I attended another printing trade show with my work colleagues. There were also more DVD and music purchases, the return of Doctor Who for its second series, and various other bits and pieces as usual. So I hope you enjoy this latest look back!

Journal – October 2005

March 2021 Introduction:

Welcome to the next set of old entries from my personal journal. Things were much calmer this month, as I now had job security with my new permanent position at the Council. It meant I was able to get much more support as a visually impaired employee, so there were discussions going on about that. And there were various other bits and pieces to mention about things I was buying, things that caught my eye in the news, the loss of a comedy legend, a few technical mishaps, and a day trip to London with a couple of colleagues for a trade show. So I hope you enjoy!

Journal – November-December 2004

December 2020 Introduction:

Here’s another instalment of edited entries from my old journal, bringing us to the end of 2004. At this point I was doing a work experience placement at my local council, having graduated from university earlier in the year. And I was continuing to enjoy my music and DVD purchases as usual.

Unfortunately, my entries for December were accidentally deleted, and it’s the only posts I’ve ever lost. I think I might have been combining journal files together at the start of 2005 and missed it off by mistake, but I can’t remember for sure. So in its place I just wrote my usual summary of the year, and briefly mentioned the key points for December at the end of it, along with another top 100 list from the month.

That anomaly aside, however, I hope you find these posts interesting!

Journal – October 2004

December 2020 Introduction:

Welcome to another set of extracts from my personal journal of days gone by. This month I started work experience for the first time since leaving university, with support from my Work Prep adviser Louise. There are naturally a lot of specific details about my work that I’ve had to edit out here, either for confidentiality or because they’ll make no sense out of context, but there’s still quite a bit here that will give you a good sense of how I got on. Plus I continued buying music and DVDs during the month of course. So I hope you enjoy!
