Posts of the Day – July 2014

July Post of DayJuly has been a rather busy month. Besides the holiday fever rush of clients trying to get things done and dusted before they head off on their annual breaks (in Spain some companies virtually shut down for the whole of August), I have moved, which as we all know is an extremely stressful and time-consuming process. Now posting from my new work set-up in Bournemouth (which is not quite as I had planned since my desk collapsed en route and one of my bookshelves is decidedly wonky), I am surrounded by piles of boxes and stuff that needs sorting. I fear it could all take me a while, and certainly longer than I had anticipated. This will, unfortunately, have a knock-on effect on my CPD plans. Still, I’m sure it’ll all be worth it in the end once I’m settled. And I’m especially looking forward to escaping with my laptop to the comfy armchair and footstool in the summerhouse for a change of scene.
