Mandatory blog post

Michelle has told me that I have to write a blog post. I guess the wee link to the turboed Kombi wasn’t enough.

It’s Easter Saturday and the weather has been unusually excellent.

We had 2m3 of wood chip to spread over weed-matting on the garden, which I finally finished today. Why is it that we wait until we’re going away before we get the place looking good and tidy?

It’s scary to think that we’ll be leaving for Switzerland in less than seven weeks. I’ll be finishing work at Vodafone, and looking for new work in Zürich. If you or anyone you know is looking for work as a web developer – I need to know. I’ve applied for a few jobs already, but haven’t heard back from anyone, as yet. Everywhere I look, Google Zürich are advertising for a role that would be perfect for me. I’ve applied but haven’t heard back. Perhaps I’ll go knock on their door when I get there.

We’re trying to figure out what to to with tax and stuff – the IRD aren’t particularly clear about overseas income, etc.

We may have some tenants for our house, which is great. We’ve got a bunch of furniture and stuff that we’ll need to put into storage, but if anyone wants to borrow any of it, you’re more than welcome. We’ve got a bed, some bunks, a dining suite, two sofas, a coffee table, etc. There’s no point in it sitting around gathering dust if someone could use it!

Anyway, I have to go build a Lego house now; catch you later!

    Google is one of the booming companies in ZRH. They just presented the company on the TV last week or so. It is a young and dynamic environment. Only detail: its an “gringo” company 😉 See you later!
