Woohoo! The big news is: new job. I started a couple of weeks ago and it is a welcome change from the old place. For a start the commute is not as big and while it is still a programming job the sector is very different and the “department” consists of exactly four people. Which is quite a bit different from the corporate jobs I’ve had before.
It’s also great not to be working in an industrial estate bounded by a dual carriageway and a railway. After two years of amenity drought I keep forgetting that I can pop into a supermarket, bank or post office if I need something done now.
