...I'm still very much alive and kicking, albeit trying to kill myself with lots of hard work. I know, I know - always decking moaning that golfyball. Miserable sod. Well actually, I'm not moaning. A good bit of hard work can be very rewarding and I'm quite sure that in the long run it will be. So what's been going on then ? As you can see, last years blog consisted of a single entry reminding everyone to register to vote. So there was that. But it's long gone and once again we have a conservative government who are just has hopeless as any other government we might have had, and so the cycle of rubbish leadership continues. The back end of 2014 saw me travelling up and down to Liverpool working on a job at Shop Direct. That all ended up being a successful piece of work and the long hours proved worthwhile. They were a challenging lot, but they were truly only asking all the right questions and doing right by their business. I'd like to think that we did a good job for them and the services we provide are just what they needed. That all wrapped up just before Christmas and the break was a welcome one that enabled me to recover somewhat before getting my nose back to the grindstone. So then it was 2015 (even now it's hard for me to believe that I'm talking about a time over a year ago). Since then, I have worked on just one - yes one single job. Now that in itself is unusual. The turnaround time of these things is usually anything from 1 month to about 9 months (for a particularly long one). Not this time though. This time We're coming up on 16 months and it's not done yet. In truth this piece of work is the largest thing I've ever got involved in. It's enormous. That sounds like it's quite big and I'm sure your imagination is putting a boundary on it and estimating a size - however, whatever it is that you're imagining isn't big enough. It's bigger than that. Honestly, it's insane. And I can't believe we'll ever see the like of it again. Unfortunately that means I can't really talk about it, which is a great disappointment, but such is the way of things. I can tell you that I've spent the time travelling up and down to London and Ireland both of which are fascinating and soul destroying in equal measure.
