December 2008 – Back for Good
I'm not talking about Woolworths.
I entered December in reasonable shape for the exams. But I didn't take into account two weeks of client work with long commutes. But a combination of sympathetic managers, a well designed revision plan, sticking to one half of the revision plan and blind panic means that I pass the exams. I celebrate by going on a midnight pub crawl in Greenwich finishing at 3.30am. I would recommend "Desperados" as the place to get a beer at 2am (because everywhere else is shut).
I spend two quiet weeks in Liverpool at the end of the year. But not before the new joiners in my department fulfil their duties at the Christmas party. We sing a song that professes our love for audit using the music of Take That's "Back for Good".
