This field trip back in October is one of the reasons I wanted to tip the work life balance back towards family

This coffee provided some warmth this cold cold morning. So did my breakfast buddies

Can’t wait for this dough to rise and bake. I might be (re)addicted to fresh baked bread

I have a permanent attachment to this little guy. I don’t remember how or when I got him but he was with me at every exam in school and university (and my driving test) and on every desk or office I called my own. My life long good luck charm.

Broke out the old bread machine for the first time in forever. Forgot to take a pic of the final product so this is what remains of the plain bread

This sign has bridged the gap for my son between “fall ball” and “spring training”. He jumps on every chance he can to be here.

Took advantage of the lull in activities today to clean. I still love our counter top

So proud of my Weblos scout and his den. They took the “recruitment video” challenge and with their Arrow of Light friends and siblings made this a reality youtube.com/watch?v=S6gmFZmHon

Had a lot of fun watching our scouts record a recruitment “ad spot” last night.

on how to move an enterprise to a zerotrust access model.

It’s the open of the 2020 six nations 🏉. Looking forward to an exciting tournament. Cymru Am Byth!

I’ve been slowly watching MCU movies with 2 of my kids. Tonight is Infinity War. It’ll be interesting to see how they take it - but at least they won’t have as long to wait for End Game as I did!

Last year I started a journey to find a better work/life balance that I will write more about. In just over 6 months previously impossible opportunities have become reality.
