A mad couple of weeks

So I’m on the way, can you believe it?  I don’t! After all those HR issues and then medical mayhem, I’m finally on the way. Two weeks before my planned fly date of 7 December, I called up Mr HR and managed to throw him a curve ball and also get the whole business moving…

So the current state of affairs is that…

Uneventful update…
