Got back to Perth on the 3rd of Jan and it was bloody hot coming out of the airport, especially as I’d been in either air conditioned comfort or the freezing UK air for 3 days.
Was nice to get back home though and one of the first things I did was to skype the kids.
Poor Henry, being small, burst into tears when I spoke to him and wanted me to cuddle him (we’d being doing lots of that and I miss it too). They’d had the remainder of their presents and were pretty happy.
The next day, Monday 4th I had to prep for an interview (sorry if any work people read this – its true, its not that I’m really unhappy with my job or company, it just pays to explore the market every now and again – if I get the new job, I’ll be over the moon as its a good opportunity, if I don’t, its a shame but I’ll carry on and continue to focus 100% on my current job – does that cover my arse enough?) which was a pain – it was a presentation on stuff that I don’t know anything about, so I had to put in 1/2 days work to get to grips with what I had to do.
The interview the next day went well I think, although I haven’t heard yet – its always hard to gauge what an interview panel really think – I’ll let you all know what happens as soon as I know anything.
So, we’re almost upto date – back to work this week already although very little is happening at the moment as a lot of people are still away. I have a big project to take part in this month, although I’m not sure what my active involvement as technical architect will actually be as this is going to be a hands on exercise, I’ll find out on Monday.
Well, thats a load of text without any pretty pictures..so, to remedy that..here’s some I took the other night 🙂
Its another beautiful day today, so I may pop out to get some photos this afternoon 🙂
Great photos. The “burst” one is especially appealing.
thanks, Slamdunk 🙂 Its pretty photogenic around here and I love trying out new things with the camera. If you have an SLR camera (it might work with a compact too, I’ve not tried it) with a zoom, try zooming in or out just a little during the shot and you’ll get this effect. The longer the exposure or more you zoom, the more pronounced the effect 🙂
I am always so smitten with your pictures. The first and second ones are my faves I think.
Any word on the interview??
Thats such a lovely thing to say 🙂
Interview – nah, followed up, my agent was chasing them but not heard anything yet. *sob*
(PS tee hee…I’m such a pest.)
