Technically, four weeks into my new job and I'm already looking for a way out. Assessment is a peculiar thing, you really have to stay current with the developments in your field but once you have left the field it is difficult to get back into the field of expertise. So short term, assessment is great, however long term you become old, rusty and irrelevant. And so, following burnout induced by my previous employer, I am now looking to escape education once and for all. Fingers, being crossed, make it difficult to type.
Irons in fire.
Anyway, other than work work work, nothing much seems to happen in middle age. Men lose their hair, children become the center piece for old friends and others continue to ignore the fact that they are in their early forties now and should be acting a little bit more responsible.
Locally, being a councillor and all that, there are things afoot. The new chip shop opened in the village on Friday and now the air is no longer thick with the scent of coal and wood fires but with the thick dank stench of chip fat and cooking. Nice.
