34) Moving

The tools and techniques behind great software products

It's been a summer of moving. Happily, we're now back in our refurbished Animade studio, and my family and I have moved into our new home. It's great to have some stability.

With the house move has come more remote work, and more commuting. I'm in London 2 days a week, and working remotely the rest of the time. I was initially apprehensive about the commute to London (a little over 1 hour by train), but I'm enjoying it. It's nice to start the day with an hour of distraction-free time. It goes some way to making the early starts more bearable at least.
