      ... position with a decent starting salary. It is a position that will allow me to get qualified as a Travel Agent and thus gain a skill which I can take anywhere, should I get itchy feet again. I will be working 5 days a week on a 6 day roster and it is usually an eight and a half hour day with a half hour lunch break. I get to sleep in a bit on Saturdays though!!! On Saturdays, we only open at 10:00 AM instead of 9:00 AM and then we close at 3:00 PM ...

I laughed and smiled through the whole thing. I guess it is a bit of a tradition here to put on a panto so it was a ...

      ... it can get a bit lonely when your friends are 3000 km away. However, I am slowly making new ones and keeping in touch with the old ones when I have signal on my phone. The girls at work are all really nice and most of them are around my age. As a result we get on great! They've even invited me to go out with them the next time they have a night on the town.
