HBTY and other stuff.
I am happy, exhilarated, grateful, excited and keen all in one rush of thoughts and emotions today.
This week I have been on the phone a good bit with my new line manager sketching out my first three weeks of work in my new role; I am being sent all over the country to look at stores, to help put together a new one that will be on my patch and to see regional offices, head offices, sanctuaries and distribution warehouses. It feels smart to be back in the game and I am grateful for it with a healthy degree of humility and a ready capacity for hard work.
Also it is my brother's birthday today so HB to him. When we were little chaps and I was 5 and he turned 10 just before I became 6 we were both excited as he was twice my age!
Tomorrow I am off to Co. Wexford, Ireland for a week's larks prior to my start in the new role. I am staying with Seamus a former BS5er in the village pictured.
It has been a sunny week in many ways and I have enjoyed time on the wall very much.
