Another Sunday

Autumn has been making itself known here now .. Especially in the evenings & early mornings ... Our daytime temperatures are still warm though ...Well warm enough to wear T-shirts and sunny enough to still think about hat wearing when we go outside .... We live under the ozone hole for too much of the year .....

Work has been pretty full on again ... Highlight of the week was Friday where I had organised a multi-vendor executive seminar on the ITIL framwork ..This is a best practice framework for running IT Service Management... The discussions were excellent...lots of humour and finally the realisation from certain areas as to the extent of my work ... All processes within the ITIL framework come under my responsibility/ownership. The days session pushed this home and strenthened my case for creating a Service Management Office .. My Boss the Company CTO made a good set of notes to this ..He has a vested interest in putting this in place as well .......

Those photos are outstanding. Beautiful autumn tones and a peaceful mood to them all. The shots of the spider are amazing. I love the river- bed shots with the tussocks blowing in the wind.

Great snaps, Dinzie.
I think my friend's daughter is going for Residency now in NZ, staying in NZ.
Hard for her family, but they plan to go over as often as possible. Another friend's son starts a year at Uni of Wellington at the end of the month; part of his Geology course at Leeds Uni.
They plan a Xmas trip, which should be great.
The world is certainly shrinking, isn't it? We had 2 wks in Thailand last summer and found the travelling SO well organised, almost easy.
