Where have I been?

Hmmm – where HAVE I been?

Well, the answer to that question is “right here!”. I guess the more accurate question is “what have I been doing?”.

One of the things I’ve been doing is restarting my homebrewing. It’s been going very well indeed – incredibly enjoyable work producing 4 batches of beer, 1 of wine and a batch of apfelwein (a dry German cider) so far. Made and enjoyed with (touch-wood) no failures or anything that wasn’t absolutely top-notch – I’ve been really impressed with the outcome (and, I guess, impressed with myself for producing it!). I’ve been photographing the hell out of the process and you can see the photos on flickr over here and maybe we’ll see about another form of documentation in the near future.

I’ve also left my Toastmasters club. I felt I’d gone as far as I could with them. Three years membership, half of it as VP Education taking us to two successive Presidents Distinguished Club awards. I definitely don’t feel I’ve finished with Toastmasters, but it was time for some new challenges for me, so I’m currently looking at new clubs to join.

Professionally, I’ve been doing some part-time consultancy work but I think it’s time to find a full-time development job. To help with that goal I’m going to be brushing off a couple of demo sites and projects over the next month. Always good to have something to show people.
