Looks like a secondment into School Admissions will be happening - starting next week. This is a significant promotion, a big challenge and somewhat scary - pleased people think that I'm up to it. There was some disbelief about the democratic way that a colleague and I decided how to approach this vacancy in a pain-free way, avoiding a recruitment exercise and lots of stress. In any case, big changes are afoot. Its going to be a very odd week - lots going on. Staying available in case of funeral-related errands etc.

New Year has started very quietly here. Stayed in on the night, and listened to the various firework displays which continued well into the morning. Restless and agitated. Much consideration of the changes proposed at work today. Ready to go public next week maybe? Rebuilt much of GNOME, ate far too much - an increasingly common event.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
