Due to an urgent need to visit the dentist I worked from home today. Fortunately B was able to wangle a rostered day off and sat reading her book with Kita on the daybed in the study. The sun was shining, music playing out loud and I was able to wake later than usual. It sounds like a bludge, but in fact I was really focussed and productive in an environment so much nicer than my current office.
I'm feeling restless now and wondering what I'm doing with my life. I feel like I'm not going forwards in my job, that my skills and knowledge have not significantly increased for a while. Should I look for opportunities elsewhere or maybe within the organisation? I have some ideas for the mathematical side, and they seem more flexible. Time to get the brain into gear again!
