Ten years away (kinda)

So ten years ago this week I packed pretty much my early possessions into the back of my Vauxhall Astra and drove to Birmingham to join (what was then) LloydsTSB. There have been emails and messages flying around from my cohort reminiscing about that initial induction weekend and of course the life memories that we’ve shared together since. A remarkable number are still in the ‘Dark Horse’ – testament to the fact that it wasn’t a bad employer at all.

I made some great friends along the way – one of my Grooms men was a guy I met in Lloyds and several of the attendees at my wedding were also bank friends. Indeed I’ve holidayed with some and made great friends in their families as well.

It wasn’t all smooth of course – life rarely is – and being away from family for so long hasn’t been what I would have hoped for but it was the right thing for me to do.

So here’s to the ‘Dark Horse’.


About Mcfaggen

Having grown up in Co. Fermanagh where most of my family still reside, I thought it would be worthwhile to keep a blog of my travels around the rest of the UK, Europe and the World.
