Bit of a thoughtful day today. Most of the staff where I am based went off to a union meeting.
I always enjoy it when the building is quiet, as I get more done, but today was even more effective. I made a start on revamping my CV, downloaded some advice on the topic and had a skim of the local job adverts.
Also gave me the chance to reflect on what I had done and what I want to do in the future. I have a week away soon and this will give me an opportunity to mull as well. Not knowing what's happening with me is a little unsettling as neither my current charity nor the new one are willing to commit to anything in writing at present. I am retaining my optimism which is very comforting, given so many others who have had a commitment are unsettled or negative even. I try to lift spirits by example.
Worse things happen at sea as they say.
Another advantage of the quiet time was that it coincided with a Web Conference on Windows Live meeting about using BT Conferencing for web collaboration. I joined in via conference call and web site, since the desktop I used was locked to application install. I enjoyed it and the timing to suit Europe helped (it started at 11.30am GMT). The saddest part was my, out of character, reluctance to ask a question live; it meant I missed out on a $400 prize, given to the first person who called in their question rather than type in a question from the web. Hey ho.
Just typing then posting this before heading off to bed.
