Friday … Which means it’s the weekend. Phew! We’re both really tired. Work is still really cool, but it is pretty full-on, since I still haven’t been there long, and anyway, I am trying to make an impact.

That, coupled with Cillian’s new, broken night-time pattern, means both Karyn and I are pretty whacked, particularly by the end of the week.

So it’s all cool, but am yawning a lot! Karyn was at aikido this evening (we take it in turns), just so she could squeeze out any last drops of energy! I was at home with the little fellah (obviously). He’s not really 100% at the moment, bless him, and he was definitely not full of beans. So we both sat on the sofa, and got lots of answers wrong watching Mastermind, while I fed him broccoli followed by banana.

New job

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

J'ai commencé mon nouveau boulot au EBI le 1 septembre. Déjà c'est plus stimulant et plus dynamique que mon dernier travail, je crois. D'accord, personne n'a pas demandé rien de moi encore, donc je fais ce que je veux, et ça va changer bien sûr, mais quand même, il y a un très bon ambience là. Et il y a du thé et des biscuits gratuits à 15h! Pas mal!

I started my new job last week. September 1st, to be exact, after finishing at the University of Cambridge at the end of July. It was OK there, but working at the European Bioinformatics Institute promises to be more exciting, dynamic and challenging, I think. And they have free tea and biscuits at 3pm!  :)
