Back in the saddle

After five weeks off (two of them in Italy) I'm finally starting a new contract tomorrow.

Good news
- it's not on an industrial estate behind the sugar factory in Bury St Edmunds, with a visit once/day from a sandwich lady
- the office is on a modern business park with four Starbucks, a restaurant and (not coincidentally) a mobile phone shop

Less good news
- it's 100 miles away, so I'll be spending a deal of time in the car, and/or in B&Bs for the next few months.

At least it should be interesting work with an enthusiastic team (from those I've met so far) - and I'll be well placed for training into London to meet friends and colleagues. And in case it all gets too much, I've got another two weeks in Italy starting a week today with a couple of days in Venice, then back to the house in Le Marche for a rest. It's a hard life...
