Yet another late post. I did skip a week whilst I was away camping in Devon. I’m glad I did. It was nice to give myself a break from routine on all fronts! This shot was taken using my new camera. I upgraded from an Olympus EM5 mkII to an Olympus EM1 mkIII. It’s a similar system with upgraded bells, whistles, and a much-improved sensor. So far, I’m enjoying the upgrade, and given it’s been on the market for some time, I picked it up for a price that hasn’t made me weep! The…read more

6 Month Reflection

Posted: 30 May 2017reflectionbalancework

So today I had a meeting to discuss, reflect on and review my first six months with FutureGov in addition to planning out the next six. It’s one of those odd milestones where you can’t quite wrap your head around the fact it’s been six months already but in equal measure it almost feels like I’ve been with the company for years. I won’t share the finer details of the meeting but happy to report I still have a job (so I did a few things ok!) and I have plenty left to do and…read more
