Good good links #55

Somebody pinch me! It’s been [a little over] a whole week since I moved here and I finished my first week of work on Friday. [If I was being honest there’d have to be a question mark at the end of that sentence. Hard to believe.].  There’s been a lot of change I have yet to adapt to. And there will be change for these kind of posts, too. I’d assumed it already and I don’t get as much blog reading time as I’d like to anymore. Not unless I’d make it a priority over sleep and I know you – or at least my coworkers 😉 – will agree what should come first.

However, the upside of occasionally shorter link compilations is that a) I’ll [hopefully …] get more sleep and have my head spawn brilliant ideas for work and the blog and b) you can [technically] read all of them 😉 . So we all win in the end, right?! In case I haven’t lost your attention already by now: enjoy the posts and enjoy your Sunday! Only so much left of summer until it’s back to scented candles, boots and gloves long wool socks.
