The past few weeks have been real bliss. Iâm really enjoying my new contract.
One of my goals in finding a contract this time was to stay out of London. Iâve had enough of the London commute with its delayed trains and crowded tubes. So, in my new job I commute three days a week (working from home two days) on my motorbike. Iâm working in two different locations about an hour awayâbut on country roads. Each morning, I pack up my laptop, strap it to my back, and ride to one of the client offices.
My work has been all Silverlight so far. I love getting stuck in a new language. Iâm having flashes of insight as to how to do cool things while Iâm out running or taking a shower. Itâs a novelty and heavy on the brain.
I still wake up early, but my morning time is spent with meditation and running (and surfing around reading up on technology).
Life is going well.
