Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because crying would be to no avail. My husband just bought me a carbon fibre competition level bike and the full designer bike outfit to go with it. I get fitted to the bike this week. So I am going cycling whether I want to or not. At least the bike is light. I've never been on a a roadbike before.

I hope you'll like it. I really enjoy bicycling, and for your sake (also considering the apparent investment), I hope you'll get some real satisfaction from it.

I smiled because I got my first ever call from a Swiss recruiter this morning.

Good job, congrats.

I smiled because I read a good guide on interview questions and how to answer them.

Study up!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I realised that my boss is worse at his job than I am at mine. So I should be safe for a while longer...

That is probably why he is the boss. He has mastered the art of getting other people to do the work, take the glory himself and get paid more than them at the same time. Who is the mug?

You know, I actually wouldn't mind that at all, but lacking the experience, I doubt I could afford to make that career change.

...but I'll still be happy to drink the Moscht.

Re: I smiled because...

...I'm sitting working at my desk, looking out over the sea, listening to Shine On You Crazy Diamond, watching one of our short-eared owls hovering in the breeze as it hunts, and recalling the question that so many people asked me last year "Why would you possibly want to go back to the UK?!"
