Today started around 5:00!  I finally managed to go back to sleep around 7 for another hour and a quarter but about an hour ago the fatigue started to move in along with a headache… another headache!  It doesn’t look like I can blame the weather so perhaps it’s all the fatigue, among other things, […]

Our trip to Buckfastleigh in Devon, went largely without a hitchand And then got interesting, near the end. The last 5 miles or so, were into the farmlands, on a single lane narrow road, surrounded by 8 foot hedgerows. I could hear my travel companion thinking…what the hell is going on.

In the last two weeks, I have been for two interviews, both with the same company, in London. I very much hope that I have been successful, as I love their technology and I think that the company culture and the people are great. I am worried that I didn’t perform to the best of […]
