It's probably of little interest to anyone but me but ten years ago yesterday, after a working life spent entirely in London, I travelled by train, in spite of flooding outside Lewes, to arrive at the University of Sussex bright and early to take up a post as Information Resources Development Co-ordinator at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. The medical school was to receive its first intake of undergradates that September. I had nine months, therefore, more or less the length of a normal human pregnancy, to set up services for them.
Ten years later, I'm still working in Sussex, and have lived here since March 2004. I am older, greyer, slower. I sometimes miss the business of London, but rural idiocy has its compensations.
