Back to work.

Oh joy, oh rupture! Three weeks leave has slipped away and tomorrow I must return to the grindstone. I used to enjoy my job, but lately it hasn't been fun. I think I have commented on this before, but, at risk of repetition, I'll say it again. We have a plague of Managers. People who haven't the faintest idea what we do or how we do it, but they've been parachuted in to manage it.

Oh well, at least I will only have to endure one day of them. Tuesday I go to Poland for a conference. I have spent part of my leave working up the presentation because our lovely managers kept piling on the workload so that I couldn't get it done during work time. But then, that's normal I guess.

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing a part of the world I have never seen before and meeting colleagues from a wide range of countries and disciplines. It will be an education and I know I will come back feeling that I have gained both knowledge and friends.

I could just wish it was going to be summer time there ...... Where did I put my thermal underwear?

For those who find amusement on this site, I should warn everyone, that I shall try a post tomorrow - but will then be "offline" until next Saturday. See you then!

Salah gashle! Stay well, as they say in Zululand.
