I know it's almost been a year now, but I keep being struck by just how much I'm enjoying working for myself.
Many people who know me well have commented how much happier I seem (and I am!). More than one such person have observed (diplomatically) that I seem temperamentally better suited to answering to me, rather than to someone else. I think they're right.
That said, I don't think I'd be enjoying self employment nearly so much without the support and synergy I get from mine and Derek's joint venture [gawr-juhs]
. So often in creative work you need external feedback to get something clear in your head... or at least I do.
I feel very lucky to be enjoying the best of both worlds.

In however long we've been going to the Quiz (over two years if my poor excuse for a memory serves) two things have never happened: we've never had the Quizmaster's Two*, and we've never come last.
Last night we came last.
Happily last night's consolation prize was a bag of Rolos so our unprecedented poor performance was well timed.
*Nobody ever scores less than two on any given round at the quiz, if a team gets fewer than two points they're awarded two by default - hence Quizmaster's Two.
