Suspended blogimation

Just a note that I’m between homes at the moment – my stuff is mostly in storage while I wait for my new place to become available.

There’s really not much more to say about it – aside from those few feckless fuckwits, I’m heartened by the way people in general have responded – just at my workplace, there have been coordinated efforts to arrange financial and other assistance from the employers/management, unions, small groups of staff organising fundraising morning teas, etc. Everyone is pitching in, however they can.

Normal posting to resume at some stage – I’m not beyond all of the work pressures, have some other projects to attend to, and have some travel coming up, so I’m not locking anything in.

After a weekend of bliss came three days of tireless labour. I’m returning myself to an upright position.

I didn’t miss anything important, right?

Gone fishin’

I’m in the process of doing loads of work so I can take off for a pleasant weekend getaway tomorrow. No freebie this week; normal posting to resume next week.
