Until I’m back in work again!
2006 has been a very busy year for me, with a lot of work going into the 6.0.2 release of WebSphere ESB which will be shipping real soon now. Add onto that work for future releases, a fair dose of prototying/investigation work (which is always fun) and trips to Las Vegas, Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Salzburg and not least Swansea to speak at conferences, visit customers and appear at internal meetings and it’s been varied and fun.
One thing I haven’t done enough of though is take holiday, hence the fact that I’m now out of the office for three weeks. I’m looking forward to getting to getting the chance (weather permitting) to get the 400D out a lot more, hopefully including a trip to London on the cards for next week. Then I’m sure the camera will be well utilised when I drive over to Dublin on the 27th to stay with Lana’s folks for a couple of days before we then head down my uncle’s cottage in the small seaside village of Slade, Co. Wexford, on Ireland’ South coast, for a secluded few days heading up to the new year.
So whilst I’m sure this won’t be the last post to this blog before then, it does seem an approriate time to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, dear reader. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating, something I’m currently doing by working my way through a bottle of Faustino I Rioja!
