Today, I quit the job I've had since 1 April 1997. My last day will be (officially) Friday 5 September, however with 5 days' holiday to take my actual leaving date is Friday 29 August.
My US visa also arrived today, but not without much fuss and palaver and other comedic happenstances. I had the MD running around like a headless chicken trying to find me - I was in the office of one of the other directors formally handing in my notice (and, er, forgot to tell anyone that). Never mind that the useless tossers who deliver secure mail on behalf of the US Embassy claimed to have attempted to deliver it on Monday (though nobody in the office has any recollection of anybody calling for me at all), the first I knew of this being on Tuesday when they called me out of the blue. Whatever. I have the documents, nobody can stop me now, for soon, I Will Be Invincible muahahahahahahahahahahaha!!
Right... so now I have to:
- Book flights.
- Arrange a mover.
- Get stuff to/from my parents, which is complicated by the fact that they're going to be in Brighton most of next week.
- Get a new job (I have my visa now, I can technically start looking).
- Sell my car (but not until Aug 20 at the earliest) (T-reg (1999) Skoda Octavia 1.6GLXi, 41,500 miles, good condition, FSH, probably going for around £1200-1500 though I'd need to check.)
- Anything else I've forgotten?!?
[Edit] Hmm, seems I've under-valued the car, it's probably closer to £2000 as (a) the mileage is low and (b) my particular model is perhaps the best in the range for reliability, driveability, longevity, and so on.
