I had a great break over at my sisters new home in Spain. I got to know her 12 cats (!!!), her Spanish neighbours (who are the Spanish equivalent of The Waltons) and the local vino pretty well. The weather was amazing, the mountains were great to walk on (after a drive to near the top!) and the pool a joy. I am resigned to the fact that I am unlikely to see another run of sunshine this year as the only other planned holiday is in Yorkshire – an equally beautiful place but a little wetter :-)

Today is my first day back to work and I just spent all morning sifting through my Inbox and getting all those “5 minute or under” tasks done whilst creating a much longer list of bigger tasks to get finished by the end of this week. It has become rather long – and doesn’t seem to include “write some code”. Hmm… that can’t be right.
