I guess not every day I get to attend an oficial opening for a store with a UK Minister, from the Foreign Office. We have just had our official opening of one of the stores in Medellin, attended by the quite dishy, and nice deep voice, Jeremy Browne. He is a Lib Dem and Minister for South America, quite and quite handsome though he needs to do something about his teeth.
After 12 years in continuous employment I was 'credit crunched' in November 2008. I decided that I wasn't going to stay in London wasting my redundancy money and fighting with 500 people for the 3 jobs that might become available throughout 2009.
I have always wanted to go away for a substantial period of time: travel the world, go to those places that you that really can't experience properly on a 2 week holiday, Laos or Indonesia for example.
I am also planning to do some enviromental charity work in Costa Rica.
At the same time I also felt that I needed a break from London. As much as I love the city and its opportunities it was wearing me down. I need a little time to regroup my thoughts and decide what to do with my life.
I hope someone out there will read this and enjoy it.
And please, I'd really like to hear your comments, any feedback would be highly appreciated.
