About that news...

It’s been nearly a month since I told you I had some news, and I’ve now had the official nod so I can tell you what it is…

Firstly the sad news; I’m leaving Creation” and I’m going to miss it, especially the team - even you Mr Tim, if you’re reading this; the Moriarty to my Holmes. It’s been fun, and I’ve learned a lot about a great deal of things, so cheers! smiley icon: smile

Secondly the exciting news: I’m joining the Stuff and Nonsense/Karova web development team! I’m pretty excited about this, and I’m really looking forward to learning a lot of new things and working with some very talented people. I’ve already met Peter, Andy and Sue, who seem very nice people, and I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the team when I start work on the 24th. smiley icon: smile

Thirdly the knock-on news: Karova is based in Wales, and I live in England; a situation which clearly makes no sense, so I am moving out and getting renting a place of my own! Peter has been very kind and helpful in assisting me find a place, and this weekend I’m driving to Llandudno (with family in tow) to check-out what’s very likely to be my shiny new bachelor pad. There’s a whole new world of freedom out there (and another equally large and uncharted world of bills, no doubt).
Living by the sea is going to be awesome, and once I’ve saved up enough spare money I’m buying that Canon 350D and visiting Snowdonia. *glee*

    Jimi as someone who has lived in North Wales for 9 months I can assure you that you are in for a treat. It’s a lovely place to live and there’s no end of scenic places to visit. I was in Snowdonia only the other day and it’s amazing.
