A fool's paradise is based on false hope, and trust me that is the worst kind of hope there is! I know I am the mistress of belief in Pandora's Box, sometimes the hope that tomorrow will be a better is all we have. I spent along time chanting that mantra over the last few years personally and professionally.
Fortunately it hasn't been a fool's paradise, but we did have moments of hell on earth. Still that's what builds a team ;)
It has been a long time since my efforts at work have felt so appreciated; it was nice to be able to stand my team down early Wednesday afternoon and tell them all to go home and sleep and that I would see them all at 13:00 today. I've worked places where the attitude is : Finish the project. We will buy you a new family!

So it's a wise woman's paradise today, a moment when my mind can rest with a well deserved lie in. It is that pause before you shout "NEXT!" and get your keyboard at the ready! Bring it on! It is a precious short lived moment when you get to enjoy what you delivered, after all in IT you are only as good as your last delivery, and I get my next krypton factor challenge this afternoon.
