And we opened a bottle of cider...

I've been meaning to give a brief update to this blog for a while now, to say how the new job is going. When I left the previous employer, I blithely told everyone that they could keep an eye here and see what was going on with my life.

And since then I've barely touched the ground.

And it's bloody wonderful.

I'm immersed in an enormous project that's really going somewhere, which hit its first delivery milestone today. (Within the normal two-pages-of-qualification margin of error required around any project milestone I've ever seen.)

I'm briefly allowing myself a small sigh of relief, an evening off working till midnight, to wallow in this. Because tomorrow it's back on with trying to bring down the Music 14-16 part of BBC Jam. A twenty-page essay would have filled me with fear several year ago - this one is writing itself.

I'm excited, invigorated, working on great content, meeting interesting people, going to fascinating optimistic social jaunts, the proverbial whirl.

Meanwhile Milo's getting more interesting by the day, Daisy's become just fascinating, and Vicky can fit back into her old jeans.

Life's pretty good. And teetering on the edge of extreme exhaustion is a small price to pay.

(That from Monday we're going to finally be in our offices in Hammersmith rather than Stamford Brook is just icing on the cake.)

Tom! I passed you on the escalator at S Bush tube this morning. This must be your new commute to work down the central line, right? I thought about yelling out TOM! But I had headphones in and, you know, you can never judge the right volume. Anyway, hope it continues to be wonderful.
