Winter 2014 - yet more change!
A few weeks ago, one of my colleagues mentioned that he thought my next eNews must be about due. Well, overdue is probably the right word.
The past few months have see me working in offices in both northern Adelaide and Brisbane. It's meant cramming a whole heap of things into a limited amount of time outside the "normal" hours, in turn meaning that my eNews has not been at the top of the list of priorities.
However, the time has come to pop my head up again and get an eNews edition "out there"!
A pretty obvious indicator of my recent paucity of available time is the lack of a pretty pictures with links in the left sidebar. Maybe next month?
Full-time worker again
After 3 years of being a part-timer, 16 months of that running my law firm, as of 28 July I am once again a full-time employee. I have joined York Civil Pty Ltd as Commercial Manager Qld & NSW. The role is an operations support gig where I get the opportunity to utilise everything I've learned over my working life. It's an ideal role and, although dealing with eastern seaboard activities, is primarily based at Wingfield, here in SA. As can be expected there is an amount of travel involved.
By agreement, the law firm continues (in my own time) and, provided there are no conflicts of interest and I have the capacity, remain able to provide services to my private practice clients.
It's an exciting time and, as I have mentioned before, an opportunity far too good to refuse!
Our little band of F1 tippers has reached the (European) summer break with everything still to play for. Competition at the top of our table is, similar to the actual championship, wide open with 3 well placed for the last 8 races. As for the racing itself, well there have been some great races and some great racing with seriously brave overtaking moves and some not-so-bright efforts as well. Despite the early criticisms, this is turing out to be one of the most entertaining and enjoyable seasons for quite a while.
The photo this time is from one of our recent walks on the Heysen Trail through Deep Creek. Tricia and I have joined with a group of about 60 as a part of the end-to-end 9 group walking the trail from start to finish. Once a month for 6 years (more or less) starting at Cape Jarvis. With 3 done, we still have a rather large way to go, but it has been fantastic so far.
