Today I start my new job. I’m really excited.
Even though its just over the road from where I used to work, and the commute is pretty much exactly the same as what I have done for the last 7 years, I still drove over there yesterday to check out the car park in a bit more detail, find the visitors spots I’m supposed to park in and just make sure that nothing has changed in the last three months since my interview.
I can’t remember being this excited about going into work for a long time, I’m looking forward to meeting the people I’m going to be working with, I’m looking forward to the technologies I’m going to be working with and I’m really looking forward to a fresh start with a whole raft of new adventures.
Oh, I’m looking forward to ordering my first ever company car too. The kids are telling me it has to be red (it was going to be red anyway to be fair, but don’t tell them). I’ve been driving around in a Hyundai i30 all weekend – its a beautiful car to drive and it reinforces my decision to order a Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. The hire car has to go back in the next few days and I’m going to be using a Skoda Octavia pool car. Hope it has heated seats! I didn’t half miss them this weekend in the cold.
It’s been a long three months. I’m feeling full of positivity and hope for the future.
Long may it last 🙂
