it begins

I'm back at work today. I should be down, I should be disappointed the weeks off went so fast, I should be slacking off and catching up on christmas stories.

But I'm not and it is for good reason.

Just before christmas, and I mean just before - I was already on leave, some very exciting news came through. I had been working so so hard in the week before leave putting together a proposal for a pet project and trying to get a bit of funding action - $1.5million funding action.

It was a tense and urgent time for the sprout.

But........it was all worth it, the money came through and now I get to build a cool youth recreation facility and skate plaza.
Something like this one prepared earlier.

Days like this I like my job a lot.
