normal

things are well and truly back to normal. work is already at a manic level and it looks set to continue at the same level for the next few months. this is not a bad thing as things had been due to slow down in march this year at which point i would have been looking elsewhere for a contract.

as things stand our contracts are finally being moved across to eds as part of an outsourcing project by the bank. they have been aiming to do this for around a year but it kept on being put off but we finally have the meeting this afternoon. i only have a couple of concerns... one is petty, apparently eds are not keen on wearing casual clothes to the office and i haven't worn a suit regularly for almost 4 years now. the other is that at our next renewal they eds are almost certainly going to want to cut my rate which is obviously not desirable. more to follow if anything interesting happens this afternoon.
