This past weekend, I had my first day at my new job and, as usual, I managed to start on a day that was busier than expected. Of course, I don’t mind at all being thrown in at the deep end. Sometimes it even helps you to know what you should and should not be doing.
It’s definitely different to my last job, but I have to say that I’m already absolutely loving it.

Only two subjects for today’s blogpost, but I have a feeling that they may take up quite an area so it would be cruel to try to stuff extra bits and pieces in here and there. Of course, we must deal with the first topic first and the second topic second. Because that makes the most sense, right?
So if you didn’t come here wanting to hear about why I was awake pretty much all Friday night and had to make a hospital visit this week, then skip on ahead.
This is my dad. He’s given up smoking recently. My parents have both tried to do this years before with no success, but this time it has to stick. We were in Whitby when this photo was taken, which was a few years back, at least.
