Wow, it's been a while since my last post and so much has happened.
At the end of 2013 I left my job at the university. Our department was downsizing due to restructuring, packages were offered, I applied for one and my offer was accepted. I am missing my workmates and friends, and missing working in education, but I will be moving onto the next thing (be that education or other) soon.
Rather than take a new position right away I spent a while looking after my family, and on the 5th of March we welcomed a new arrival.
