Where have I been?  Well if I tell you that tickets for this year’s dConstruct launched on Tuesday, you’ll understand that right now I’m in the middle of a conference organising fever.

The build up to dConstruct is always exciting and with two months to go I can already feel it start to bubble.  I’m really looking forward to this year’s event and the fact that, without last year’s EPIC travel FAIL, I will actually be here!  There’s no dashing off to the desert for me, although I am going to miss being at the Burn this year.  Who’d have thought I’d miss that dust?

Conference aside, it’s been an emotional couple of months.  On a philosophical note, I guess you can never have the really good up’s without the really horrible down’s.  To fit both into two months has been, shall we say “interesting”.  It is really good to be feeling more myself again.  It’s also been lovely to stop and catch up with the world.

What would I take out of the past six weeks?  Well, I guess much of it is pretty obvious really.  Friends are great, wine is probably best drunk in moderation (I still haven’t made up my mind on that one!), and sometimes you just need a really big kick up the proverbial.

There: no earth-shattering gems from me I’m afraid; but I do recommend that people watch out for curbs – they have a nasty habit of attacking you when you least expect it and causing post-gig ankle injuries.
