Weeknote 01-05

The lack of sunlight at this time of year really gets to me. It makes me feel heavy and slow. But we've had nice things to keep us occupied; the dregs of the Christmas period means plenty of snacks to finish off, the jigsaw to complete, and the decorations and tree to keep us feeling cozy... until tomorrow!

I tried a 7am swim yesterday, which left me in a good mood for the day, and remarkably awake. Unfortunately today the tiredness has caught up with me, but at least it's only Friday.

As for work, it's a slow easing in for this week. I'm trying to reduce the quantity of Javascript we send to the client, eventually with the goal of removing our React dependency completely. I think it's possible, and it will be nice once done - but it's going to be a long process!
