Job secured it's time for Turkey

Thankfully the return bus trip is on time and without delay, so we are soon back in London and ready to plan out trip to Turkey.

Planning was brushed aside when I received a message from an employment agency about an interview that afternoon. As we were leaving for Greece in the morning, Tan and I had left the bulk of our luggage with a friend of his. This included all of my good ‘work’ clothes. I had to race down to Kensington High Street and ducked into the old faithful Marks and Spencer and buy some new clothes. I say old-faithful because, although I had never shopped there, it seems like I have since the countless British TV shows I watched growing up as a child frequently mention chain of stores.

After a mad dash back to the hostel and a quick shave and shower I ran to the tube and headed to Wimbledon Park station. I actually arrived at least 20 minutes late, but it did not seem to phase the panel, Denise and Karen. I guess I made the right impression and they offered me the job of Credit Controller for Manhattan Toy Europe.

With the interview over and a job secured for when I returned from Turkey, I was free to relax and enjoy the next 2 weeks travelling.
