Huzzah!

I just accepted a job. Subject to security clearance (which is a formality), I'll be working for more money (more or less doubling my salary), in a better city (moving to Bristol) for a more interesting job.

Huzzah indeed.

The last couple of weeks have been rather good: Kat passed her driving test, Crawley juggling convention took place, and I got the job I went for.

Bonza. Nice one mate. You're also a hell of a lot further down the country now, which makes visits a lot easier too.

All around good stuff. Hurrah!

Realism -
It's a whole lot more seaside than Leicester is. Let's face it, I'm currently living as far from the sea as it's possible to do on this ker-azy island. I mean, you can actually see the water around Bristol.

I miss the sea. Weird considering I grew up in Croydon.

Fair enough, Snoo. But when I googlemapped for Leicester there was no large area of blue, but there was for Bristol. Anyways, J-man could always bring a boot of sand to the waterfront and build sand castles tongue.gif wink.gif
