Saturday 14th May 2016: 10.47am. It's the end of my four week break from programming outside of work hours which I normally take after presenting at conference. Next Monday starts the preparation for CppCon in Seattle next September. It's been a very productive four weeks though, an enormous number of chores and backlogged non programming todo items cleared. Just a few more to do this weekend, cutting the grass, defrosting the fridge, realigning the tv aerial, hoovering and mopping the entire house, hoover the car, and prepare for Northern Ireland.
