Where’s Uncle Clint gone? Not had time to blog the last few nights. I have an interview in Bristol in the morning and have had to prepare a presentation as part of the process.

This has involved me brushing up on my project management techniques, going to visit a mate for some advice and teaching myself PowerPoint.

I don’t really need PowerPoint, they have made it quite clear that they are interested in my organising skills rather than my IT skills, but after a quick mess about with PowerPoint it was evident that it is a piece of p*ss to use and I wanted to use it instead of overheads and/or flip charts. I had to hold my self back from all the bells and whistles, i.e. the sound effects and animations, I am sure they would be a distraction.

This preparation meant that I had to miss out on going to watch Wales beat Azerbaijan two nil in the Millennium Stadium.

My football will also be interfered with over the weekend. I have to attend a three day long union committee meeting which rules out me going to Brighton for the weekend to watch the Bluebirds fly. I should not complain too much, I will be tucked up in a hotel, full board, with all expenses paid except the little matter of beer money… but there will be expenses that go some way towards cover that as well! It’s a hard life.

Anyway, I am now going to jump in the bath with me Ewan McGregor book and try to forget about S.M.A.R.T. targets, and Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats for half an hour.
