I've been sick for a long, long time. I'm still a bit ill - but it's starting to improve, at long last. There's light at the end of the tunnel now.

So, I need to start thinking about what I'm going to do with myself once I'm fully recovered. My old job at MCG is unfortunately not likely to be available any more, and I'm not sure I want to go back to embedded anyway.

So what to do?

Well... I can't leave Aberystwyth. My wife is settled here, it's the perfect place to bring up my daughter, and finding somewhere to live that's as well-adapted to Cerys' needs as the place we have now is almost impossible. 

I'm a practiced coder, and my capabilities are returning rapidly. I've been a technical support officer and I've run a company of my own. I have a lot of skills that would make me very marketable if I could leave the job wasteland that is West Wales, but that's not an option.

So, once again, I'm going to have to make my own opportunities. I'm going to try to dredge together what support I can, get control of my IPs, and then strike out on my own. I've done it before, after all. 

This is probably going to be difficult, but I can do it. More details to follow once they exist. See you all the other side :)
