What a week!!!

So, the first full week back after the Christmas break is finally done with. It has been very tiring. Work has been monster busy, and that combined with the email system for the entire company being down for 72 hours (yep, three whole days) - well things haven't been going too well.

London Underground hasn't been helping. The Jubilee Line has been having a total nightmare... not working more often than working. I was quite delighted to get home in good time tonight.

I'm looking forward to the weekend. Time to kick back and do as little as possible. I've a few errands to run but apart from that I fully intend to totally relax - before another crazy week.

Probably the most interesting news story of this week is the Government's new initiative with regards to nuclear power. Supposedly the idea is to reduce reliance on oil and gas from other countries, and obviously to help reach emission reduction targets. Whilst this all does make sense it has to be said that nuclear power isn't truly "sustainable". Sustainability should be defined as meeting the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Nuclear power technically doesn't do this, not until a strategy for effectively disposing of/treating waste is formulated. Admitting that alternate energy is needed is a good start though.
