Changes, they say, come in 3's

It really has been a month of change. First we have had a welcome change of government. Then, a change of house as we finally got to move back home after the fire that took place there back in March. And now I have a change in work as I managed to snag this gem of a position:

My day job really has been getting me down lately as repetition really grinds my brain cogs. The thought of sitting down at my office desk and repeating the same mundane tasks every ten minutes makes me want to scream, and I've been using up a lot of annual leave lately just because I wasn't able to face going to work. Regular readers of this blog will know that I have been spending a lot of time recently working on job applications and not that effort has paid off. Now I have a new and challenging role to play in the office as a Communications Officer for the PCS Union I and welcome this fresh experience with open arms 😀

Spending time spotting the errors in the proofs of my Guy N Smith book that arrived yesterday morning. As well as fixing them, I will change the answers to the x2 quizzes to a feinter print so they don't stand out too much and spoil the fun. The publication date is just a couple of weeks away now 🦀🦀🦀🦀🦀.

Tomorrow marks Day 1 of my next 100-day project - my fourth Explore Gower guidebook, Tidal Gower. During this time, I will also revamp some of my other Gower guidebooks.
