(Summary blog only.   Last full blog was Day 0368).

This is a short and mostly pictureless blog because, since going back to work, I have much less time to be out and about photographing things.   Makes me realise just how cut off from the outside world I was, for all those years of full time work in the office.

Today was hard work, but rewarding.   I spent an hour or so handling some admin matters from the flat, then drove over to the office – which is about half an hour away outside rush hour, but twice that at peak time.   It would be very tempting just to work from home, as I could do with modern technology – but I find I get too easily distracted.   So going into the office, especially when you are new and don’t know anyone or even how the coffee machine works – can be quite stressful.   Anyway, I made myself do it and felt very satisfied by the end of the day.   I had managed to deal with quite a lot of issues while I was there, and had a couple of meetings.   So very much worthwhile.

I’m going to stop now and go and make dinner.   I have a business trip tomorrow (to Cork) so it will be an early start.   But it’s my first proper business trip for seven years so it will be quite a novelty!   I will report back tomorrow.
