Merry Christmas

I can't believe it is Christmas already!

I have been in my new job just over a month now and had such a hectic time sorting out boxes, moving Maike out of her flat, sorting out even more boxes and more boxes and more boxes. We still had some boxes left unopened from Bristol!

Anyway, that is mostly behind us, but we still have a list of DIY stuff to do. We thought we would spend our first Christmas under one roof together here, so Maike has invited her family over. So there is still a mad rush to get some essential finishing touches to make the place presentable.

And Maike got a job yesterday, YIPPEE! She applied to the only open post available near here. Right near the Dutch border and one of the few school which is Protestant as the area here is Catholic.

So lots to celebrate over the holidays.

So if I don't speak to you soon, then have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Oh my God, where has the year gone?

Boy it's been a while since I updated this!

Congrats to Rob and Shona and I hope all things go well over the next few months. Can't believe he will be a dad.

Since I last wrote, Maike has finished her dissertation and got her results today which were very good! Hooray!!!!! She just has her practical exams to do in October and then should be a qualified teacher.

Then we can get on and move in together finally after some 6 years!!!!!! So that will be a big step for us.

We were seriously looking to get a place near here in Stade and even put an offer on a place. Boy is buying a house so much different in Germany especially the aspects of raising finance. Anyway, nearing the end of this process I got a call from a recruiting agency not long after registering on Linkedin. I was not really interested, though did speak to them and gave an off the cuff response with what I thought was a ridiculous salary.

However, they kept ringing me up and after some false starts got a meeting with the MD of their client. I was offered 3 different potential roles and invited back for interview. So at this stage I took the brave step of pulling out of the house purchase and finalised the deal after an interview end of July.

Well a couple of weeks ago I handed my notice in and will now start in November. I shall have to move to Nord-Rhein-Westfalen, the state where Maike's family live, and we have been so busy and have already found somewhere we will rent.

So there is so much to sort out, 2 house moves for the end of this year. I will go first in October, at the same time as Maike's exams, so I plan to take time off, go down there to help her (clean cook etc). And also decorate the new place before coming back up here for the move of our stuff out of here and then decorate here. German renting is such a pain in some respects with this decorating nonsense. Oh well.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I shall be in UK between 29th August and 4th September. I've got to be in Bristol to sort out parperwork, check the flat hasn't burnt down etc. Then go to my nephew's birthday (haven't told my sister yet), and see the folks. I've told my parents ans that I shall be back, they don't know 100% when as I only booked the flights this week.

So hopefully see you all soon!!!! The new place we are moving into has 4 rooms so plenty of space for visitors. The nearest airport is Munster/Osnabruck and Maike should move her things there in December, then she has to do slave labour until Feb 2008. She can apply for jobs this November once she has her results.

Will try to keep you posted, can't promise anything as I am already having to count my weekends to sort things out but in the new year things will be different, like always with me. Things don't ever seem to stop!

Hello there,

well it's about time I gave a proper update on life in Stade. I have been here nearly a year and I have finally got my MBA mark!

I am now officially a Master of Bugger All. In the end I got 68% for my dissertation, 2% short of a distinction, bugger! Well I could have done a lot less work and passed more easily, so my performance was sub-optimal.

Anyway, Maike has been progressing well with her course and will start her final dissertation soon. Hopefully by Summer she will have finished this and then just have exams to finish by October/Novemberish......

For a short break in Summer we shall go to Finland to see a friend of hers who is getting married, but other than that she haas no time really to visit the UK.

So anyone who wants to visit just drop us an email to arrange a time.

I should be in the UK part work and part my time between March 7th and 11th. Hopefully for the weekend I shall be in Bristol, so see you all then!

The Great Old Wise Master from a long distant time before Wagamama has crossed over to the spiritual world.

This is a sad day for all Oriental Folk and patrons of Wagamama. We should all pay our respects to the wise old man of Chicken Ramen and burn some paper money, rolex watches, rolls royce's mobile phones and passports the next time we consume some "Dolly Noodles".

Was he really called Momma F**k yu? That has got to be a made up name in itself!

I went to college with a girl called Must Have a Camel (Sorry Marina Musthafa...camel? Spelling never really my strong point).

Finished my MBA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for being out of touch since end September, but I have been concentrating on finally finishing my dissertation.

In between Maike and I went to Hong Kong for 2 weeks while I had some reviewers look over my draft dissertation. And then it was full steam ahead for the past 4 weeks with a total of 16 revisions.

My tutor had one final look and said it was ok, so last Monday I bound it and sent it in the post.

WAHAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After Five years it is done, I have to wait till February for my results but I shall finally become a Master of Bugger All!!!!!!!

Now I need to find something to do with my time. I will post some photos of our holiday here soon and will be in touch soon!

Watch this space!
