I finished up my 6 month contract at the pharmaceutical company on Friday and am officially unemployed whilst I’m looking for my next contract. I did manage to find a new house share in East Acton, where I’ll be moving to next week and shall be living with Christine, my good mate from uni. I must say that it was an incredible relief to get away from my previous psycho flatmate, even though the Notting Hill location was just absolutely perfect.
Before I finished up at my old job, I was invited to attend the company’s Accountant’s Conference, which really was as boring as it sounds. The important thing to know is that it was in Malta – do I hear some of you say junket??? Well, it was a complete junket, with a lot more play than work, lots of feasting, and we even did a tour of Mdina (the old capital of Malta) and of the nearby islands, Comino and Gozo.
Today I went out for a brief visit of the British Museum. It must be impossible to get a good look at it in one go, so I’m hoping to get there a few times whilst I’m here to check out the whole place as thoroughly as I can. Then I went for a stroll along the banks of the Thames, past the London Eye to the Houses of Parliament.
And until I find my next job, it’s free sights and cheap nights in with a box of goon!
