Long gone the days of youth when summer lasted an eternity. Two blinks and it’s gone, long gone seemingly. Autumn be here already with the leaves dropping, dark evenings, chilled winds and a general sense of gloomy resignation that winter won’t be far round the corner. Sigh.
Bro and partner have been over from Oz. He’s been here 3 and a half weeks and I managed to get a long break from work so we could spend time together. It’s been smashing. Very nice indeed. Didn’t realise how much I missed him and his. They go back on Sunday, the house will seem decidedly empty for sure. Getting all sad and sniffy just thinking about it.
I’ve actually had 6 weeks away from the semi-controlled chaos and v v v v very lovely has been every second of it. Back on nights as of now and it’s come hard. More sighs. That said, there won’t be that many more of them to deal with all being well. Allatsea accepted a job offer from a London firm today, as a staffer, not with the old lot either. New fields have called. Well, to be honest, an old face from new fields as it were. Someone that used to work at the old place and now works at the new place called and said it might be worth a visit. I visited, they seemed very nice. They wanted me to start sooner rather than later but contract obligations mean I’ll stay in Fannit until mid December. Time for a change. The Fannit experiment was worth doing, I’m glad I took the plunge, but, to be honest, It’s not been the most enjoyable of work. Good folks but tedious and relentless workscope. I’ve lived and learnt.
