No landline connected in our new place so I'm being all la-de-da and typing this in an internet cafe. We probably wpn't be connected for about a month which is a bit of a pain, although maybe a bit of enforced limitations on my online use isn't a bad idea.
Lancaster is lovely and everything we hoped for. The new job is a bit weird, partly because of the change in my job and partly because the change in branch, both things will take some getting used to and I hope I'm up to it. Found out on my first day that the manager had a 2 week holiday booked, which starts, oh... tomorrow. Bit of a shock really, I think a lot of my training is going to be done by me and that's not a bad idea.
Rebecca is still job hunting (have I mentioned how much I love, respect and appreciate her for the sacrifice she made in quitting her job to come here?), but it's very early days yet and she's applied for 1 job, going to apply for another and has joined a carework agency.
We spent a fantastic afternoon in the local park (10 minute walk from our very nice house - which unfortunately is a little too close to a trainline..... on the other hand there were ducks wandering past our front window yesterday so I'll take the rough with the smooth, it's a lovely house after all) which is beautiful, not only does it have a deer sanctuary like our last park, but it has a butterfly house and a bird watching section. It's also massive and resembles a wood more than a golf course/flower garden, we reckon we'll be making very regular trips to it.
As we walked we talked about stuff and I think we have a plan. Rebecca is going to look into becoming a teacher, we can afford for her to do the PGCE course now that I have a bit more cash and she could combine her present skills with teaching and going into teaching kids with special needs - more money, more hands on work with individuals and just as, if not more, rewarding, sounds like a plan.
Oh, and the second episode of Doctor Who was amazing and the next looks like it could be even better, life is good!
