7 for 7

A meme that’s going round…actually it was going round during #blogjune in 2011 and I wrote most of it then. My postings in June were suddenly curtailed due to a rather climactic event, and it was interesting to re-read that post in light of my recent job change, less than 12 months later. I still have some further thinking to do on that. Anyway, I had a few posts in draft from then that I thought I’d return to including the 7 things meme:
