I Have a New Job
Yeah its true! I am leaving the world of freelancing and am going to go work for “the man. Well actually I’ll be working for a company called Tandem TV. Its a really great small company in hemel hempstead. Its gonna be strange getting used to it. An hour commute there and back. 9-5 hours. not being my own boss. It’ll be a bit of an adjustment but I’m really looking forward to it.
Wow – That was Christmas and New Year’s. This was my first Christmas away from my family. It was also my first Christmas with Ruth which more than made up for the missing my family bit. It was really strange experiencing Christmas in a different way. It’s not like it was hugely different but it was certainly different enough to make me take stock and appreciate how we used to do it my family. Its gonna be fun creating our own traditions and seeing which traditions we take on from each other’s families.
Lets see – I’ll jus highlight the main things shall i?
- Poker Set
- Die Hard 4.0 on DVD
- Casino Royal
- Wine Atlas – to aid my wine education
- A Hat
- Millionaire making cards
- a staple gun
- loooads of chocolate.
Altogether a great Haul.
Ruth’s birthday was almost more fun than Christmas day itself. Her birthday is on Boxing day so you’ll understand why its easy to let excitement overflow from one day to the next. I woke rut with a cup of tea and the day was lovely. We had a gorgeous walk on Saunton Sands beach. The whole day was lovely.
New Year’s Eve
We did a Safari supper with a load of friends form church ending with a firework’s display by ME! So it started at one house with a starter course of all sorts of dips and nibbly type things and lots of wine and beer. From there we went on to our Vicars house for dinner where we had the main course. Kate had cooked up a chickeny stewy type amazingly tasty thing. Next we came back to my place where we had ice cream and lots of beer. The NewYear came in with champagne and it was amazing to be with my Wife to be. I do have to admit though that i was preoccupied with the fireworks. It was about 20/30 mins worth of fireworks. Not amzingly so though. I wasn’t as organized as i’d hoped but it was fun all the same and i only burnt myself once.
Today has been berserk. I had to go get my passport sorted for the new job. There’s alot of travel involved. It didnt help that the car got towed last night so i had to go sort that out too. So much running around sorting stuff is whats been happening.
I’ll try and get some photos up soon.
Back in the day I used to try and write some Drum & Bass tunes. JP and I would spend hours on these tracks but all of mine were…well….s**t basically. This track is probably the only tune that was every any good and that had potential. I wrote the music over a few days and then one night had a dream about the melody and on waking up the following morning i remembered it so i recorded it straight away.
Its rubbish and my singing is awful but the baseline is PHAT! BOOYAH!
This is the result.
Wohooo! I got my suit!
This week has been pretty big on the wedding front. a few big things have happened to get things moving. Firstly we successfully opened our joint bank account and received our cards and stuff.
We ordered our rings and received confirmation on them so that’s sorted.
Today after helping the Nisco family move house, Gianni who works as a tailor for Hackett, took me to the hackett sale and i gots me a really wonderful suit.
Its all really happening now! Its very very cool!
Right so despite all the votes on here, emails and on facebook I have decided to go with the option B ring.
Every-one’s common theme was – classic and timeless. I think those people think that option B will somehow go out of fashion. To me its not a case of fashion and i dont look at it as being fashionable. Hey i’m gonna be wearing it for the rest of my life. I always wanted something a bit different and that ring is very different. Its the finger its worn on that makes it a wedding ring.
Ta my lovelies for voting. ❗
Ive had a few interesting days this week! Its been quite full on in some ways. All in all a good week though!
- Wednesday Afternoon– I had an interview with a great company up in Hemel Hempstead. The company are really cool, the people seem really ace and the work looks like it would be great. We’ll see what happens with this one. I’d be very tempted by a job here.
- Wednesday eve – I met Ruth’s old Vicar and his wife Mike and Linda. They mean alot to Ruth and they both are very fond of her too so it was great meeting them for us to all meet was fun. They are lovely people.
- Thursday – I got in the car and the clutch had finally gone completely! I had a look under the bonnet and saw that there was no fluid whatsoever in the clutch flui resivoir. A quick call to kev told mewhat to get from Halfords and later that day i succesfully rebled the system and fixed the clutch. Go Me mr Mechanic!
- Thursday Eve – went round to see tom after his return from Saudi. Was great to see him and Mine.
- Today – i broke my website trying to upgrade it but eventually managed to fix it.
- This eve – went to a dinner with ruth for all the local church leaders. This was quite odd as there were many people there who i hd known years ago. It wasnt as bad as i thoyught it might be at all.
Now I tired and should go to bed. I have to go meet Phil in the morning and talk hosting plans! Woooo!
Right! I need some blokey input. I have narrowed the choice of wedding ring down to 2 ring contenders. These are both Titanium.
In the BLUE corner we have:
While in the RED corner we have:
