    I've decided to abandon the south and if all goes to plan, in April i'm gonna be moving to Newcastle (Blyth to be exact, but no one south has heard of it so it's easier to say Newcastle :p) yayy! Just thought I should warn you in plenty of time incase you want to rebuild Hadrian's wall to keep me out! :p Seriously though, if anyone knows of any jobs going that can be reached on public transport i'd be grateful for the info :) I look forward to coming along to the North FF meet ups, I don't know anyone else up there apart from my partner and his family so it's a lot less scary knowing you guys are around! :D

    :p

    Welcome to the cold, dark North LadyP and it'll be good to have you up here! [:D]

    Aaaah, Blyth...you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy :p

    What sort of work are you looking for and I'll see if I can help?

    We knew you would succumb to the NorthernSide eventually! [face_dancing]

    Blyth eh? Bit north of me, about 40 miles and about 15 or so miles from our spritual home of Newcastle.

    Have you tried for jobs in local govt in Blyth?

    Thanks for the govt idea, hadn't thought of that! I'll consider pretty much anything thats vaguely interesting :D Currently working at a railway station at the moment, previously worked in shops mostly, and have an IT qualification but no experience so haven't had much luck finding anything in that field... though think i prefer working with people and in customer service anyway :D

    Wonder if i'll develop a northern twang to my westcountry accent, eee ooh arrr like! :p

    It accounts for a huge chunk of the workforce up here....and right now possibly one of the few workplaces not getting hammered...

    So far so good! All my DVDs have moved up north, together with my craft and chainmail stuff, piles of books, pictures for the walls, random hippy ornaments, and the start of the clothing and shoes! So that's most of the vital stuff :D As long as I have books and DVDs, the rest isn't too important ;)

    Sounds like a great excuse for a meet! We'll have to organise something of a 'welcome event' when you finally arrive!

    Sounds like a good idea, Jase.

    Let us know when you're up here and settled, LadyP, and maybe we can arrange something?

    I'm happy to meet up for a coffee on a Saturday, so perhaps we can arrange something soon? I've got something on 16 May, but I'll just go with whatever :)

    Laura- was chatting to Jase yesterday and he was saying that some of the Rebel Legion members in the area fancied getting together for a bit of a social (in Newcastle) so if you'd like to come along, then perhaps we can organise something on here too....? It'd most likely be a Saturday and involve a bite to eat (the Stateside Diner has been mentioned as we've been there a couple of times before) and perhaps a drink or two.

    If you'd rather just stick to a coffee, then that's fine :)
