Back to the Workplace 2010

No it’s not the start of a new trilogy of films from Robert Zemeckis, its that god awful fact that I had to go back to work today after all of the festive fun and feeding.

Still it wasn’t all doom and gloom as the mid-morning snow storm (slight exaggeration) had the ladies in the office all of a ‘tizz about the thought of dashing off home – it was quite a funny sight/background noise actually 🙂

I must also give a mention to Swansea Council whose coverage of the school closures (due to the snow storm *ahem*) on twitter was excellent – to the point that I knew DDWT Junior’s school was closed before the school contacted us! It’s also a great example of how major organisations could and should embrace social networking.

In fact (quite surprisingly perhaps?) there was quite a bit of positive energy kicking around the office. Even my old mate Augustus Gloop (aka Victor Lesbos) got in on the act, revealing his “Fit4” plans for the coming year – soon to be published via – so watch this space for further details. I’m glad for him though, as I know it’ll make him feel so much better in himself and perhaps most importantly his family too.

Talking of energy, I used my lunchtime break as an excuse to kick start my 2010 training programme with a 5 mile run along the beach at Swansea Bay. Despite it being rather breezy I was happy with my 42m 13s stint and was a decent start to the year.
