A very quick note...

...I know I have been a little quiet of late, however, it's high time for a little announcement - I can now formally say that I have a *new job* working (you would never guess where!) a quite considerable distance up number One Canada Square (the big building at Canary Wharf, the one that is visible from almost everywhere in London!)...it's an incredible place, I was just blown completely away, really feels like being in (a slightly more civilised) New York...pictures and stories will follow to be sure but just so you know, I'm going to be working for a major player (the biggest, I think) in the British National Press (so lots and lots of fun to come and plenty of chances to really work with some of the biggest names in my field)!

Awesome!

Now - Story one (I suppose) would have to come from just before my second interview (which was actually quite a while ago now), I got there about half an hour early and decided I really needed a cup of tea (just to steady my nerves) and you know what? The only place I could find above-ground (anyway) on the path from the tube wasn't a Starbucks or a Costa, or even a McDonalds...it was a bespoke place run by Antonio Carluccio...Haha... ;)

This is just a completely different world...sorry Kings Cross, I'll remember you fondly, but things are definitely on the way up (metaphorically and physically - never worked that high up in the air before nor had tea from such a culinary parapet)...! ;)

Much, much more to come...! :) :)

Wohoo! =) That's so cool, I think I'm gonna have to go up to Canary Wharf and have a look around! I've never actually been nearer than Greenwich!
