No Time to Blog?

I am having trouble picking up my blog where I left it before my holyday ..... It is not that there is nothing to blog about.. it's perhaps even the opposite! It has been so busy at my work from day one. After just one morning at work I had to take the train to the TICER courses for two days. If you haven't had the chance to look at the program please do it now, because there were some excellent presentations. My personal best:
