Firstly can I welcome you to the Tour. "The Tour of what??" I hear you ask… well as a Northern Irishman across the sea I consider myself On Tour of Mainland UK. So here is where I plan to journal my travels & adventures of the up-coming years. This is really a means of keeping in touch with those at home & away who are interested in keeping track of what I am up to.
For those who don’t know, I’m now working for Lloyds TSB on their Grad Programme. I spent my first placement in Birmingham – which consisted of living in a great flat, with a good flatmate, in a quiet part of town, working in a high quality office with great people.
As part of my job I am required to change role every six months for the first two years of employment. My first six months are now at an end & I’ll be leaving Birmingham at the end of March. I’ve secured a new role in Hove (as in Brighton & Hove) on the south coast of England & as of yesterday I’ll have somewhere to live in Hove – paid the holding deposit whilst rent negotiations are pursued. All being well I’ll have a signed contract by CoB Tuesday & be able to move to my new ‘home’ by April 2nd.
So, hold on tight & lets see where the Tour brings us… please feel free to attach comments below (as a sort of Guest Book) and I’ll try to respond as often as I can.
