So it is official, I am leaving the Briz.
Or to put it more seriously I have a new job starting in sunny Kent!
And it starts in 6 weeks.
Which means I have 4 weeks left at my current job. Which is not a long time in teaching, so I am trying to get all loose ends tied up and everything ship shape before I leave.
The one thing I can't take with me is my friends from Bristol. I know I am going to miss them.
I am going to miss the band - especially as Lost Patients had just started producing some excellent output. Very gutted I will not be around to polish that material and make it as good as it can be with them.
Mostly gutted about leaving the friends I have made at OSB during my time teaching there. Friday nights in the pub are going to be hard to replace, as are some of the chats I have with other friends at school.
It really is a job where the people you work with make the biggest difference.
One thing I wont miss is Bristol post.
I have some parcels that have gone errant. Which is fine. Yet I can't ring the sorting office to see if they are there. Which is not fine.
In fact its an outrage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBCq8XDgrP0 .
It really is! I didn't want to register a complaint http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj8RIEQH7zA . However a day of off and on trying to ring the sorting office just to see if they had some of the parcels that I had ordered and being unable to speak to anyone at the sorting office. Well I am registering a complaint.
WHO TRIES TO DELIVER A PARCEL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY ANYWAY?
Bah! Basically Royal Mail have stolen off me.
No wonder someone tried to privatise them a few years ago.
Anyway off to drink ginger beer and whisky and listen to radio 4 comedy.
That's how I roll now!
