Into the smoke

Oxfordshire is a beautiful part of world, and working in Oxford has been really cool. I learned a lot of new things, got to work with some great people, and got to spend some time smack bang in the middle of one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world. London's call was just too strong though; as lowly immigrants we couldn't afford to ignore what London offers in terms of salary and career development.

So what it boils down to, is that I started a new job in London on Thursday. I'll continue the tradition and say bugger-all about it here, other than that I'll be getting my teeth into and may blog about a few new (to me) technologies. We'll start looking for a place in London, and plan to move early in the new year, but for now, I'm commuting and doing the train & tube thing for the first time. That should be fodder for a few choice grumbles, I suspect.

All in all though, it's an exciting step. Daunting, but exciting. London is something else, and it's always felt a million miles away from where we live out in the country. Now, this insanely huge and bustling city is part of my daily routine. Hard to believe.
