My English bosses finally left town in the middle of last week so I could get my life back. They would want to go drinking on the very nights I have aikido practice or have work related dinners so there went my aikido for two and a half weeks. Naturally I blended with them and dutifully drank my share of wine .
I did manage to attend Sunday morning practices though so that kept me in touch. It was a tumultous work period and still remains busy, just that I have my evenings back. There are major changes in store which may mean my life at work has jumped up a notch in terms of load for good or at least until reinforcements arrive mid-next year.
I just lost two aikido friends to melbourne. One's already shipped out and the other is moving before the end of this month. I'll miss them on the mat but I think they'll continue practice there once they get settled in so I should go downunder sometime to see them.
