This week has been a bit of a gift. Firstly, I’ve had three days at home, so I can attend a virtual training course. One of those modern things, where instead of community to spend most of the day in front of a computer screen, you – ummm – stay at home in front of a computer screen. 🙂
I am, however, doing the process and the trainer a disservice and only from a (weak) comedy angle. In fairness, these remote training sessions mean I can balance home and work life, without any major difficulties on either side. For those of you with a technical bend (Ed: ooh, Matron!), this course was on Cloud Services. There were a large number of people on the course, who’ve moved a lot of their IT systems to these external hosts. It seems the idea of a traditional ‘server room’ at work, filled with winking (read it carefully) lights and expensive kit, seem to be waning (steady). Give it a few years and maybe some companies will have no servers on site. Then give if a few years more and the trend will reverse. That’s IT for you. 🙂
Other than the training, the weather’s not been too bad, so I’ve been able to get out for a walk around the village (willage?) and the countryside. This, for me, is a very nice change from the dash to the canteen, or walk-of-fire through the industrial estate to a nearby sandwich shop. All reasons to be cheerful. 🙂
The Trans Force continue to be illusive, but I’m trying to just accept and move on. In the past, when the training has hit something I knew, I’d experiment with make-up, or sort out my wardrobe. This time, I didn’t do any of that, which means I can concentrate on what I need to and I don’t have to worry about home deliveries or tidying up, before everyone comes home.
I think the closest I’ve got to any cross-dressing, has been trying on some false nails I found in the cupboard. They certainly reduced my typing speed. How do people manage? Is it a training thing? 🙂 Silliness aside, while they were somewhat of a clash to the Dad shorts I was wearing; they felt right. I guess to some people, wearing them may seem odd, but to me, they’re just another part of my wardrobe.
So, all is ticking along and I’m only a few days away from the family holiday. Good times.
