Bloody hell. Got a new job. Fwoosh. Phew.

It's doing process based stuff rather than front-line stuff, which will be different. Dunno. Phew. Gonna be glad to have something to do at least. The last few months there hasn't really been a job here to do - it's been drawing a wage, but largely being idle isn't a great time.

Thanks!

Think once we get a good procedure up and running - they've not done this kind of work before in their company, I sort of have in that I've worked on very similar things - we'll be fine. Not sure what the surrounding job's going to be like once that's set up in all honesty. I mean, my experience tends to be that if you've got a procedure for something it pretty much runs itself, but it's gonna be interesting to see what comes of it, that's for sure. ^_^

If nothing else it's in London so I'll be putting a few more miles on the car. Help improve the driving skills a bit.

Gotta type up my resignation letter now, (without using any swear words :p ) wait on the official email with the offer in it, and then send it all off.

Congrats! I wouldn't mind working in London, pretty cool city. A bit expensive though.

Yeah, I spent last week working in London and that was enough for me.

But hey, it's whatever makes you happy :D London is pretty cool if you're comfortable with the large volumes of people.

I'll be commuting in from Kent. Which, ya' know, isn't too bad. My father's been going from Kent for thirty years, give or take, and he's still alive :p

I'm not such a fan of big cities and masses of people, but what I like even less is driving several hours per day to work and back. If I'm going to be stuck in a city then it might as well be one of the interesting ones, I guess.

With reasonable traffic, it should be about 40 minutes to an hour. By public transport the shortest time to get there in the morning would be 2 hours and 10 minutes - assuming it ran on time.

It's if you want to go much deeper into London that you're really stuffed by car.

I very nearly took up a job in London earlier this year while looking to switch.

...Then I weighed up expenses and opportunity vs the job I ended up taking, and it turns out that Milton Keynes is actually rather nice, and rather cheaper, even for less money. :p

Still, London has a soft place in my heart, congrats!
