The Oops! – These notes come to you earlier than usual. It's my birthday and I've got a few days off. Initiate Maximum Chill.
The Milestone – This week, it felt like we achieved something by reaching a milestone. Here's to gradual, iterative progress!
The Birthday – It's my weeknotes first birthday! 🎉 And we launched the new quarter working on GOV.UK's site search.
The High – Back on the wagon! Writing weeknotes last week did wonders for my brain, it'd be silly not to carry on this week.
The Fatigue – Having not written weeknotes for 10 weeks, here's a bunch of things I've done that should remind me I've done a lot.
The Fishing Smacks – The first week of quarter one, 2019/20, was fairly decent overall. A stormy week with calm moments, a veritable feast of ups and downs. Goods. Bads. In-betweens.
The Relief – We launched a thing and saved taxpayers money, found out the missions for next quarter, and I've prepped a presentation on blogging and working in the open.
The Road Ahead – It's the end of quarter 4, 2018/19. We've done a heck of a lot and there's palpable excitement at what's to come next quarter.
The Workshop – Light-bulb moments, chats with good people, reading research. All part of this week in my life as a civil servant. Tell you what, I could do with a reset.
The Key Findings – For the first time, I started to see the end of the tunnel for one mission.
The Threads – Chatting to three international governments made this a bumper week.
