Hanging out


The last few months at work have been very busy with Programmatic Review, Games Fleadh, preparation for the ICT in Education conference not to mention the actual day job of lecturing!!  Thrown into the mix there’s Coder Dojo – in Limerick and Thurles and in the next few weeks the Nenagh Dojo is coming on stream.  It’s easy in all the hustle and bustle to forget what’s really important.  This has been brought back to me this week – it’s been great just hanging out with my children and not running and racing everywhere.  Don’t get me wrong, we all need some routine, but it’s really good to get out of routine too.  There’s been no uniforms, no packed lunches, late nights, late mornings and it’s been brilliant.  We’ve had friends around, gone to the cinema and the plan for tomorrow is a trip to Turoe Pet Farm (well worth a trip if you’re in the environs of Loughrea :-)) but mostly we’ve just hung out.

The other thing I’ve really enjoyed this week is being able to interact with people on Twitter in a more meaningful way.  My interactions of late have been of the hit and run variety so it’s been great to be able to get involved in conversations with various people over the week.  I’ve enjoyed having the time to do that.
