The Weekend Blog (Vol.73)
19th September 2015
I’m sure you can guess why there was no post on Thursday.
I started my new job on Monday, and for the first time in my life I am working 9 until 5, plus commuting time. As I’ve just had three months off I am completely out of the routine of getting up, getting ready and going out, so obviously it’s taking some time to adjust.
And this explains why there was no post on Thursday. I’m now wishing I had been more organised in the weeks leading up to the start of my new job, but hey, I’ll get I sort things out!
I’m enjoying work so far, and I’m learning loads every day. I’ve never worked in an office before so it’s a completely new experience for me.
Tyrone and I were aiming for a quiet, lazy Friday night with beers, good food and Gogglebox, but our neighbour decided to be selfish and turn his bass up really loud. Then when we asked him to keep it down it woke us up at 6am. Needless to say, we were not happy.
But every cloud has a silver lining as they say, and so at 6am when we were wide awake we decided to look at houses on Zoopla to get an idea of what sort of a house and what sort of a mortgage we could get on our wages. We hate living in a flat and we know that the only way to get away from noisy people and students is to buy a house in the suburbs.
We’ve got a long way to go in terms of savings but I’m happy to start early and have a goal to work towards. I may have to sacrifice some travel opportunities in the process (*cries*) but right now this is our priority.
In the words of a man who was born in this city I call home:
“You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.”
– John Lennon
I hope you are all having a great weekend!
