Well hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged on a regular basis, or really done anything remotely creative on the internet at all.
So what happened? Well, since you asked, I’ll answer. At some point last year after working at home uninterrupted for a period which was far too long my motivation suffered greatly. It got to the point where my productivity was affected to the level where it was became noticeable during working hours. So there was no other choice. Something had to be done, and that something was move back into an office.
First of all I was working back at the Newcastle office three days a week, which is a nice office but the drive through the Tyne Tunnel is pretty horrible experience. After a month of Newcastle, a managed to get a desk back at my old office in Peterlee almost 10 years after I first started and five years after I stopped working there full time.
Working back in the Peterlee office has been brilliant. Being back amongst people I know (there are still some familiar faces there) and having other people to talk to during the working day was like a breath a fresh air to me. However we’ve had a busy period at work since, and with the extra travelling I’m now doing I’ve had to sacrifice some other things.
So the Blog, webdesign, other creative output, my Gym membership and many others things have had to suffer. However I am still doing other stuff, and I hope to get back on a even keel soon enough.
tl;dr I’ve been busy procrastinating and then I was busy with work.
