It’s bank holiday Monday and I’m sat on the sofa in my new home in Chorlton, sipping lemsip and feeling a mix of nerves and excitement for my first day in a new job tomorrow. I moved in on Saturday, which coincided with my horrid cold reaching its peak. I was sneezing and coughing all day!
But, I am finally here! My housemate is away with work at the moment, which has worked out quite well – I should be rid of my cold by the time she’s back, so we can go out and explore Chorlton and get to know each other a bit.
Luckily I have relatives who live in Greater Manchester, so I went over there yesterday for a Sunday roast which was lovely. I’ve always been very lucky to have relatives not far from wherever I am, even out in Australia and New Zealand – benefits of a big family!
What I’m looking forward to most this week is a networking event I’ll be attending through work, which will focus on digital strategies and is hosted by a leading mobile-first agency (insert heart-eyed emoji here).
