Updates from a relatively quiet month

  • The new Data/Technology Lead in my team, Amadeus, started on 1/8 and he’s got quickly up to speed with the team and the new sector he finds himself in. I now have a full team (as far as staff is concerned), so recruitment is off for a bit, although we might be getting pools of contractors to help on specific projects


Project updates, holidays, and programme-vs-function

The view from our apartment in Mellieħa was pretty cool, while having lunch on the balcony

One: the holidays and the pre-holidays work meetings

Don’t you hear my call though you’re many years away


The shortest month of the year


It’s a new year, hopefully

  • NYE was a little sad
  • work was busy but good
  • my newsletter keeps bringing me joy
  • mental health has been challenging
  • UKGovCamp and other data virtual meetups were energising
  • I’ve started a local campaign for better broadband in my isolated block.


It’s been quite a year…
