Time Off, Recharge, Rethink

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a while. The 12th May was the date of my last post. Well, in the last few weeks I have been on holiday. Me and the family took a trip to the USA and the Sunshine state to celebrate my birthday, as I recently turned 30.

We spent time in the theme parks in Orlando riding rollercoaster's and generally having fun, and we took a trip out to Tampa. The weather has been very hot and very sunny and we have all had a great time. We did intend to visit the beach but with the current oil disaster affecting the region we decided to give the beach a miss… which is a shame, I have been before and it is a beautiful place and I hope that the disaster does not have too much of an impact on the region.

My holidays and time off never fail to recharge my batteries and I always return home with fresh ideas and renewed motivation to develop my business and career.

I have few new business ideas that I will share with you shortly. On a career note I will be taking the upgrade exam for the MCITP SQL Server 2008 in the near future. I guess certification is whole debate on its own, before I left a few of the blogs a I follow were discussing the possibility of PASS offering a middle ground certification between MCITP and the MCM. Over the last few weeks I have lost touch with developments here but will pick up properly when I get home.

I also have a few more ideas for blog posts and articles and I will get them written up as soon as I can.

I have scheduled this post to go-live on Tuesday morning at 0705 UK which is the time my flight is scheduled to land at London Gatwick Airport. I then have a drive home and I know my wife (and I definitely will) will want to go and pick up our two golden retrievers, we have both missed them.

Congrats and I feel similar after a few days off here at home. Family in town, some celebration and being relatively unwired was a nice change of pace.
