  1. My codepen from last week was picked by the team and has had a slowly growing number of views and likes over the last week, so super happy about that. Currently on 74 ‘loves’ and 2,780 views. Here it is.
  2. Added in a dark/light mode toggle to this site (See at the top of the page, above the navigation) as found prefers-color-scheme wasn’t working on Firefox. [Editors note] - this was made for an old variation of the site
  3. Refactored a whole bunch of custom property names after a short discussion on the Front End Horse discord about naming conventions.

Personal #

  1. According to Apple Health, I have walked 52,106 steps.
  2. Started up bodyweight/cardio exercises, replacing my purely free-weight workouts, and feel much better for it.
  3. Went to Paignton Zoo for my niece’s birthday. It’s somewhere we have visited at least once a year since my eldest was born and it’s always a good day out.
  4. Had family round a few nights this week so got to see my 3 week old niece.
  5. Went to see ‘The Batman’.
