Week 48 – 04/08/19

What I left out last week was the fact I had accepted an offer of a new role. As of the 27th of August I will be doing some product stuff for a nice company in Sheffield called Qualsys.

They make Governance, Risk and Compliance software. It is a new field for me as it is not financial services this will however force me to focus more on product processes and structure rather than relying on my knowledge of FS to ‘know’ what we should be building. This is a daunting challenge but one I am looking forward too. I get the sense they are a very willing and supportive bunch which will differ greatly from my previous place of employment. Looking forward to it.

On Friday we headed off to Filey (well a few miles away on a village called Wald Newton) for our annual week away with the in laws. A good couple of days so far. Weather pretty good, converted barn nice and spacious, Filey has a lovely beach with plenty of rock pools and shallow water to swim in. Scarborough tomorrow for a more classic seaside experience and a reminder of my own childhood holidays. Looking forward to having some cockles.
