Last week flew by. I got a new mobile after a free upgrade with my contract. The phone is great. It's so much easier to use for email, I love having a calendar display on the front screen and it was handy when I was away from the house for a long day on Thursday.
We were suddenly given a new design for an existing website this week, which has an awful mess of code running it at present. So we've had to set to work on getting this integrated with the existing site and I'm trying to fix up little bits as I go along too. I know it's bad practice but if we get it looking right first then at least we get some breathing space from the client to get what we as serious developers believe need fixing and keep the client happy as the site can still run live.
On Thursday I went down to Cardiff for the day. Have to say it was a long day. Over 6 hours on the train and then a non stop day of speaking to everyone going and just not having time to even stop for something to eat. It was a hard going day on Thursday with a few ups and downs after suddenly feeling very insecure about my contract job there. So I now realise I need to do a bit of impressing to ensure I've got that job security and that just because I don't go into the office I'm still with them. We're off back down there for a few days in a couple of weeks, so hopefully I'll get a better vibe and reception this time around.
This weekend was beautiful weather. The sun was out and the sky was blue both days. I managed to get back out into the garden on Sunday, get the first of the Chilli seeds planted and get my little greenhouse up. Have to say, I'm really looking forward to the gardening this summer as I'm a lot more organised and keen to start with everything.
And that was the week that was
