A year goes past

Blimey, I’ve been doing these birthday posts for ten years.

Today I am a year older. This particular day will be a subdued day; last weekend I spent with Niamh and Birmingham geeks (not at the same time), the previous one with my parents, so there’s not actually a lot left to do on this actual birthday day. So I’m working, heh.

When I first met Sam, I related the old joke about being able to say “eighteen happy years… and then I met her”. Which was totally invalid since we only were eighteen. Today I could tell that joke legitimately. Well, except that we’re not married any more, probably because of inappropriate jokes. Might give her a ring later.

It’s an interesting age, this. I’m now over halfway to the days of my years (three-score and ten), and I am supremely unworried by this. At previous points in my life I’ve felt like I knew everything now, and it turned out there was always more to learn. Now, of course, I finally have learned everything. It’s a good feeling.

(No, of course I haven’t.)

Anyway, many happy returns to me. I have to get back to work now. I’m wearing the rosette that Niamh bought me, though.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
