Just got back from a pub lunch. We were celebrating!

CIDA, the government ministry that provides the bulk of my employer's funding has finally (two months late, but who's counting?) finally approved our 5-year funding proposal!

That's big news for the whole staff. We have been taking turns at voluntary leave without pay, just trying to prevent layoffs.

So a little lunchtime celebration with a couple of beers seemed pretty appropriate. Life is on hold no longer!

Although I really should continue to get my CV in order, even if I'm not looking for a new job.

  1. Thanks! Now if we can just get through Junkii's union negotiations without a strike, we'll be laughing for the next few years.
