Blog blank

It's been a while and and I've had some 'complaints', so here's a little catch-up.

Last week was pretty busy between job interviews, house hunting and getting ready for the wedding. No, not MY wedding, my brother-in-law's wedding. I was the official photographer for them.

I spent most of last week commuting into the city and back again, going to interview after interview. On Wednesday, while mid-commute, my mobile rang. It was the agency who had set-up the interview that I was on my way to. I started getting nervous, expecting the worst. But, low and behold, it was good news. I was no longer on my way to an interview, but on my way to sign contracts!

I met my future boss, chatted about work and money and then signed the contract! I started this Monday past!

My title is Business Development Manager and the company I work for is the biggest corporate catering company in the Melbourne CBD. The best bit is that I get to stay in the hospitality industry AND work 9am to 5pm with weekends off! I don't think I've ever worked a 'weekends-off' job before. I'm really enjoying it so far. And to top it all, my boss is on holiday in Scotland and Ireland until September 10th!

The Melbourne weather has started to settle down again with nice sunny days and really cold nights. This weekend I'm off to watch the Aussie Rules game between the Bombers and the Tigers. Looking forward to it.

Apologies for not posting Foto Friday, but my PC and my back-up hard drive died last week on the same day! Hopefully I can rescue my data else I've lost all 12 000 photos that I own!

Melbourne update

Almost one month since we arrived in Melbourne and things are still going fine. I finally got my PC set up (no more messing about with the old laptop) and I feel much more at home now. I also have Skype up and running again, so I can call my family and friends around the world for free.

The past two weeks I have been pretty busy with interviews, but so far no jobs! I'm starting to get a little edgy 'cos I need to keep myself busy or I just sleep/eat/mess with the computer. I spent Saturday helping my broter-in-law-to-be at his cabinetry business - we installed desks at the Melbourne Business School in the city.

On Saturday night I caught up with some friends at the casino for a drink and to watch a game of soccer (Sunderland v Spurs). Needless to say, it was a pretty boring game so we bailed after the first half. It was great to catch up with the guys though; I haven't seen them since November last year!

That's about it for now. Back to job-hunting on the net for me. I missed Foto Friday last week, but I promise to have it done this week.

Foto Friday

Another belated photo. Mainly 'cos I haven't yet set up my PC and had time to move, resize and edit my pics.

So, enjoy this one. Taken in Leicester Square, London last Christmas. I was messing about with different speed settings and came up with this one.

What do ya think?
