Absence makes the heart grow fonder?

I haven’t posted an update for quite some time. Life’s just been very busy. I’ve been between several different projects at work, ran a number of presentations including a very last minute notice to present at invite-only QCon London all whilst battling a cold that seems to have lasted a number of weeks.

Fortunately I’ve been able to enjoy the weather with a few small days in the office and at least one weekend where I wasn’t deathly ill (sorry Nathan for missing your engagement party!) or preparing for the next conference/presentation. I did manage to see the premier of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in 3D Imax although it was a pretty disappointing film. I think the reviews that talked about Burton and Disney fighting it out with Disney coming out on top definitely rang true, and even the 3D did little to make it any better.

I did see another movie, and The Blind Side which was an underrated movie released in the US last year about the opportunity given to an underprivileged kid whose natural protective nature makes him a football star. I also saw several weeks back now, the very entertaining 39 Steps at the Criterion theatre that I would definitely recommend and was a huge laugh with only four actors playing an entire cast.

Despite being very under the weather for the longest I’ve been, I’m still around and kicking at least 🙂
