Once again...

Sign in to follow this  


it has been a while since my last blog entry. In fact, I've been a little bit overloaded with work and saw by next burn-out coming. I've already passed through that sh** two times and I really didn't want to live through it another time. So I pulled the rescue string and requested John to push back my reviews for a couple of months. I also geared my workload towards minimum (just what it takes to bring in the money to pay the invoices) and finally took 2 weeks off (no computer, no pda, no handheld and only the mobile phone for the most urgent stuff).

So off I went with my family for 2 weeks of holidays in France. While the holidays were quite... eeeh... cool (in fact, I suffered from the heat), our return was worse than anything I lived before. Upon our return last saturday we've learned that my wife's grandfather had died two days before. I only got the SMS messages on saturday when I returned into my country (thank you for nothing, Base). I had to announce it to my wife when uncharging the car. She immediately called her family. On Sunday we jumped back into the car to attend the funeral on monday morning. All over all this was a very heart tearing experience.

I restarted working on tuesday, checking back with my clients, laying out plans for the projects I've currently under way and already decided to take another week off in 2 weeks.

Ah yes... I've also sent a new review to John (UltraEdit) which will appear on schedule :)
