Exciting stuff

Well we've got some pretty big news today. I had a call last night from my boss and he has offered me the chance to train as an Intermec technician, we had talked about it in the past week and he's had the OK from his bosses in the US to take on someone new.
I have to let them know by Tuesday but it's looking likely that I'll take it. Sophie has seen a Forensic Psychology course and may sign up to that if I take the job. Training is for 18 months and then I could either stay in Australia or work for the company in their UK branch. The starting salary is the equivalent of about 21,000 pounds which is great.
Taking the job would entitle me to have a 4 year visa, though Sophie would still be on her 1 year visa, which means that if I do accept the offer... we have to get married!
I guess this means it might be a bit longer until I see you all again but you're all more than welcome to come and visit us
Not much else to report, we've just been to watch the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie which I managed to convince Sophie to see with me. Next we've got Mr Bean and the new Transformers film when it's out though I think I may be watching that one alone.
I'll let you know what happens about the job, watch this space!

    Just as well really as we've let your room out while you've been away and so now we can keep on our lodger. Where do you want your stuff sent?

    Hey Jamie. Man, I'm so sorry I've been out of touch for so long. I'm also sorry to read about some of the frankly crappy things you've had go wrong in Oz. Still, it seems like you're on the up now, lets hope it lasts. What's new? Not much. I got called to the Bar on the 8th March and I've got some frankly hilarious pictures of me in a wig that I'll show you when you get back (oh yes, you ARE coming back dear boy. Sooner or later...you can't escape Malvern!)
    Very best of luck with the job mate (or not, if that's what you decide) and I will let you know if anything earth-shattering happens.

    Could be worse...
