it was an early start to drive to stansted this morning and then train into london from there so that i can get home tomorrow evening.

it's going to be a long day as the plane isn't until 8pm this evening and it is always late. then i have to be in the office in amsterdam very early tomorrow morning.

there was a mix of good and bad news yesterday, my contract got renewed but the whole team took a 10% rate cut (again). that being said we are still a lot better off than most contractors at the moment. we are also being forced to take several days off over christmas which has messed up my plans a little but i am not overly worried by that.

i also got agreement for my 6 week break in jan/feb/mar next year which is beginning to take shape now. more to follow later on this.
