So, on Monday I walked about 30 metres from home for an interview @ friendsreunited, and walked out again 20 minutes later with a job, starting in September. Hooray! That's me sorted for the next 6 months then =) . This also means that we can now go on holiday without feeling too guilty about spending money. We were planning to head off to the south of France; that was however, before I checked my passport and noticed it expired in June! Apparently they can rush me a replacement if I go up to London next week and pay them 80 odd quid, but it won't get here until at least the 22nd which is pretty much the end of our time off anyway!
Being limited to only the UK, we have decided to do it properly: a grand tour. We are thinking of going all the way up to Edinburgh and back again through Wales, and then down to Cornwall for a bit of camping. It should be good, and we can see if we really do agree with what Bill Bryson had to say along the way! Ooh, he's actually doing a show at the Harlequin in Redhill in October, I think I may have to get tickets.
