September in review and goals for October

So September is coming to an end and once again the month has gone so quickly. I have been quieter on the blog and getting less done recently and for the past 4 to 6 weeks because I have been very busy otherwise. I have gone through job interviews (10 of them in just one month!) and finally accepted a new job and resigned from my current one last week. Lots of time, lots of stress and lots of thinking, which meant less free time to play! Anyway I shall start my new job in January 2015 so it will be nice to have a fresh start for the New Year!

I guess it doesn't help either that I seem to be suffering from a swap-mania and keep signing up for more :-)

Let's just have a quick look at what I have worked on this month.
