Well my youngest sprog is 25 today, happy birthday Toni, I wish you many more.
Over the past few weeks I have been going through the interview process with a vary large vehicle rental company. Suffice it to say that last week I received a job offer for the position of workshop manager. The job is a step down and a pay cut compared to my previous job but I accepted and put my notice in.
I wasn’t ready for what happened next, once the news got out that I was leaving the industry I received a number of job offers and my employer got straight on the phone to arrange to fly over to have a chat about what would make me stay. Without going into detail, I have now decided to stay at Wrights and look forward to some changes.
Radio activity has been quiet this week mainly due to all the other stuff that has been going on with work. But I am to get some contacts in over the weekend.
One of the things that has come out of my recent attempt to jump ship is that I have only had 4 days holiday this year. After talking to Lesley we have agreed that I need to make sure that I make the most of my time off. So this Friday I took a day off and me and Lesley went to Southend, a place I used to go a lot when I was younger but haven’t been to for years. I was quite pleasantly surprised to see that Southend has managed to keep going and doesn’t look too tired when compared to other resorts such as Margate. I managed to get a plate of Jellied Eels on the seafront and was content to eat these looking out at the pier. The eels were good. me and Lesley finished the day by having a bag of chips in the car while parked on the front, happy days.
A trip to the boat is beckoning, I have a week off shortly and am looking forward to a few days R&R in Norfolk
