Sunday Column (237)

A lucky commuter week is behind me. I got a seat two days in a row and yet was away for two days this week. I sometimes think I am crazy to commute an hour into London, then another 30 minutes within London, to reach my place of work. I suppose it doesn’t bother me because I use the time on the train to read, catch up on videos and TV shows or write this blog. If I didn’t, I couldn’t do that daily commute.

I keep you posted (hopefully the saga won’t continue though). Work is going well. We had our 2nd member of staff starting this week, e.g. having 3 people in the mexad London office now. We also keep interviewing and hopefully are able to recruit a further team member soon. All is going well and things are great. I keep enjoying it, and not only say that because my boss is reading it, lol. On Thursday
