What I'm doing right now...
My blog talks a little about some of my interests and happenings, but doesn't describe what I'm actually doing day-to-day. I aim to update this page relatively frequently to tell you what I'm currently up to in and outside of work.

- After 3 months I've now settled in my role as principal software engineer at Booking.com where I'm working with multiple teams to improve developer experience across the company.
- My (still secret) side project continues, although I've not had as much time to spend on it recently.
- My habits have slipped somewhat, although I'm right in the middle of a diet after spending the last few weeks frequently eating out while working away.
- Still enjoying driving the Civic Type-R as the main car, although there are now a couple of cosmetic fixes it needs. The MOT is rapidly approaching...
- The Discovery was back, briefly, and then developed a catastrophic coolant leak. It's in the garage having that rectified this week, which will include a new head gasket.
- I've moved away from GitHub Actions and back to Jenkins, building out a new workflow to save money in AWS while providing the same convenience I want when playing with personal projects. A blog post is coming soon...
- Playing the occasional bit of GTA Online and Goldeneye 007 on the Switch recently, while resisting buying Tears of the Kingdom.
- Taking a break from house renovations after completing the first floor rooms, although we'll be starting on the ground floor shortly.
