So after my workplaces massive restructure (3 years in the making, 200+ jobs cut) - I went from being under a cloud of a) being cut or b) being kicked down to a lower pay grade for the same job or c) being shifted to an entirely new place and role, while also being kicked down to a lower pay grade; to being told I'm a) now permament, b) keeping my pay grade, c) staying where I am and d) they're taking annoying tasks from my job description. This worked out so much better than I thought it would. I'm a little suspicious of how well it's turning out for me...

Went to a secluded beach out of town now that Spring has arrived and the water isn't bloody freezing.

Those two people in the distance were the only other people there at the time.

In gym news, hit a new PB for bench - 125kg. I'm a little annoyed becuase it didn't feel that heavy, I just set up very poorly and the lift went to shit. I have a sneaking suspicion I can do more but will give it another week before stressing myself that much again, it was close enough to a maximal effort that I wasn't going to try it again that same day.

I am jealous of the beach.

It was wonderful - slowly downing a cider and just listening to the waves. I'm torn between more people enjoying it, and having it all to myself. It's about a 20 minute drive away from the city and there are three main beaches within the actual city itself so, for now, I'll enjoy the seclusion and the occasional seal a while longer.

I think my fave beach in this part of the world is Purakaunui Bay.

We used to spend New Years there - haven't been back in years but my partner has never been this far south on the Island so a trip could be on the cards.

I'll make it to Moeraki some day.
