Spare time


I always joke about spare time.  I answer certain requests from my family and friends with “I’ll do it in my spare time”.  Most of them know this literally translates “I’m never going to do that”.  Spare time.  Pffft!

On the horizon I can see some of this elusive spare time.  I’m about to be unemployed – or in consultant-speak “between contracts”.  This is a rare event full of excitement blended with a twist of fear.

I don’t take time off very often and the idea of a break is overwhelmingly wonderful.  The ‘not having any work lined up yet’ factor is a little bothersome, but that feeling is squashed by the excitement of a new professional beginning.

What does all this mean?  I have time for my blog.  Brace yourselves!
