So, it's been a little while since I last wrote and uploaded a new post. You may have been wondering where I have been? What have I been doing?e
So, I just wanted to write a quick, more personal, post on where I have been and what I have been doing.
The short answer is I've not been anywhere. I've been here all long...
Well, here, at home. I've not left the country or any other elaborate things such as that.
What has happened though is I started a new job. My previous role ended in June. I spent some time looking at got offered a job with a small company doing some development in C# and ASP.NET.
However, I couldn't start there until August and so spent some most of July doing some things around the house and then spending the last week of my time off with the wife and kids.
When I started working it was an intense start. I had to get back into doing just development and back into C#. I also had to start to get up to speed with ASP.NET (something I am still doing) as I had never really done much development in web ap's.
The good thing is, that, it seems to be currently going well. There is a lot of work to do
What I may do is include any stuff I learn along the way - though I have started to write some posts on my old personal website over at seanmccammon.com.
I've had that site for too many years and it's changed many times - though as always been more of a personal share and all about us
I'm not sure I need to expand as I've really given the details above - but let's do this. Let's get deeper.
So, as I have said. A lot of what I have been doing has all been about getting up to speed with this new role.
That's work. At the same time, a lot has been going on at home.
So, the first thing is that not so little Miss wanted to do the Grammar test this year. So, I've been working with her to help her prepare for this.
Maths and Verbal Reasoning she has been doing well with, but like me, English is not her best subject. So, if she missing out on the score it would be down to this.
She has worked hard on this, doing some work every day since July - so I am hoping she gets enough points to reward her.
On that, she did the test yesterday. She said the only thing was the comprehension in the English, as we expected, and so now we just have to wait until October for the results. Here's fingers crossed.
With that out of the way, this spares up a little time again for both of us. No section of the evening cordoned off to work on this every day.
The other thing is, that, little Mr has become a little Mr for sure. He had enough of being off school and that caused an issue. Then when he went back he was in a new class with a new teacher and thy mixed up all the kids that were in his class for the last 2 years.
So, with only 2 out of his previous class plus 4 or 5 kids from another class - he's been difficult to settle. This has caused some issue in and out of school.
Change is difficult and so it's just a matter of support and trying to wait it out. We're hoping as the weeks go on he will settle.
That said, there are lots of other things changing in
We feel he had done well in this school for the last 2 years - but we also know what changes are happening so worry.
So, I hope you see that time has been taken up and I've not been anywhere - just not really had time to sit and write.
I do hope to start to share more going forward. See if grammar school works out. See if little Mr.'s school experience picks up again. Winter is coming and that always brings an issue too.
What even does happen though - I need to get back into the sharing... issues, and remedies we use.
