For the last four years my role has involved supporting people who develop the careers of new lecturers within a top university. It's the longest I have ever been in a job! I really love working on campus. I sat in a lovely little office that overlooked a courtyard, with lots of windows and my name on the door.
I arrived to my office yesterday and my lovely colleague Claire had decorated it with balloons and signs that said 'good luck'. I laughed out loud at what I found stuck to my computer!
I also got lots of lovely gifts including a couple of bottles of champagne, a cute cup to take to my new office, a finger monster (you can see him on the bow on the bottle), a lovely handmade glass rainbow for my new desk, and a collection from the unit, which I will buy a remote for my camera from, and some Wesc Bing Bang headphones for my iPhone. I cried when I left, I'll miss them lots!
So what's next? I'll be heading over to a department that supports medical engineers turn their inventions and potions into a proper business (I think!). I can't wait!
Isn't it the law that you have to get a new wardrobe before you start a new job? I got myself a couple of new dresses... I'm afraid I am waiting to borrow a tripod so I can show you them, but here's a sneak peek...
Very cute. I am going to the Trafford Centre tomorrow... there could be more for the collection. I'm thinking knitwear and T-bar shoes.
What's your autumn winter staple?
