I started my new job today. In many ways* it's like my old job except with paid holidays and stuff. I'll miss the 2 spare days a week I had to indulge other interests but projects but I suspect I'll just have to do that at the weekends like everyone else. Half-Llama will still be around though for consultancy work and I suspect I'll keep up with the networking.
* pretty much every way except my effective daily rate. The world is full of ironies ;-)
