…in ten years!
Yes I find myself away on holiday for a week staying in Yorkshire, went fishing for the first time in 10 years yesterday and managed to catch a couple of smaller fish, the carp were spawning so no luck there..
Many comments about that’s the biggest fish in ten years or the most fish caught in ten years were had.. and It rained cats and dogs.. Ironically the Brollie appears to not be waterproof so got soaked.
Took huge Carp rods and don’t see them being used now, luckily brought a few smaller rods and some floats so had a laugh with that. Was nice to just spend a day faffing and not worrying about work 🙂
So work and everything had calmed down a tad for at least the next month, I’m back to work for one day then fly to Milan for a commercial and technical meeting before covering for another project again for 2 weeks.. I think I will then not be available for anything else as I try and get a handle on being in charge passing out the work to others rather than doing it myself, this as it turns out is a great way of finding out stuff I have missed or even pointing out some as I can see it now helicopter view.
My health has take a beating other the last 12 months with my blood pressure that of a 90 year old, and my struggle to keep fit, Angel has been using the treadmill more and more and can at times out pace me walking now.. which shows I need to work on my weight and fitness levels.. So that’s my aim going forward.
I’m not going to talk about the Uni Course.. I really REALLY struggled with it, the difficulty increased just as I was taking on more and more work which didn’t help. But I may get the chance for a re-take on the exam lets see.
The company recognised my efforts and awarded me a bonus, which I would have preferred to be time off but alas no the taxman needs more of my hard earner bonus it seems, I left it too late to request the bonus was donated so I ended up paying tax on it.. paid towards this holiday though so silver linings and all that.
I really need to reach out to people and catch up, but I feel I don’t deserve to do that as I cut ties in the first place.. I’m sure everyone is much better off without me around poking my nose in anyway.
Oh and off to Kickstart in Nottingham end of next week for a day.. If it were bigger I would have gone for 2 days but.. I’m getting older and can’t see myself spending money on things I may already have or won’t have the time to play with.. Man I’m turning into a moany old git!
Anyway I’ll try and check in a bit more from now, no promises though!
Oh I’m on Mastodon if you want to link up @Cha1n@mastodon.scot 🙂
