Somethings different

So its been a few months since I did anything really to this site, simply as at the start of January I started full-time employment.  So before I continue big HELLO to John who is reading this at work.

While I am working full time, answering calls and making sales for a large telecommunications company, upgrading customers phone, broadband and tv packages.  Getting abuse down the phone when the customer asks for discounts and I advise that I cannot assist.  Besides for the abuse and people yelling the job is fun with a great team.

Alas, my time at this employer is ending as shortly I will be doing what I need to do to keep my sanity.  In April I will be moving to Crete for 7 months for a new job, ok pay is not as good but the benefits are better, 7 months in sun sea and sand, compared to rain in Scotland.   The comparison is poor but accurate.  But it’s funny never thought I would like a call centre job, nor did I ever  think that I would get the opportunity to live abroad again.  But seems both thoughts were wrong.

Now I will end as I get ready to go for an 11hr shift.  Keep checking back for updates and pictures of my travels abroad
