Wear It Pink!!

I love when company's take part in charity work.
Last Friday at work was Wear It Pink Day in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness.
Everyone had to wear something pink or pay money towards the donations for breast cancer research.
We also had a bake sale. Different colleagues baked desserts that were sold at
work during the morning, all proceeds going toward breast cancer research.
There was also a raffle, in which you could win anything from a bottle of wine to spa treatments. 
Again all proceeds going to breast cancer research. 
It was a fun day. Here are the many looks from work
for Wear It Pink Day.

I wonder what they will do for Halloween?

Stay Tuned!!
Adventure Awaits!!

So Far...

It's been a little while since I posted. 
So I'm here to catch you up on what has been going on across the pond.
I got a job. I started work on the 18th of October. I work for Anglian Water. I love my commute!!
I take the bus or I walk. Taking the bus takes exactly 10 minutes.
This includes walking to the bus stop, getting on the bus and walking
to my building from the bus stop. I walk home sometimes, depending on the weather, that takes about 30 minutes. The scenery is worth the walk.
This is what I see:

My first few days were filled with paper work, training, meeting new people and e-learnings.
I think I am going to like my colleagues and my job. I work 9-5 Monday -Friday. Definitely different from what I was doing back home. They don't play here when it comes time to leave work. They leave on-time here, no overtime in this
I have met some interesting people during my first week and some cute

Stay Tuned!!
More adventures await!!

Out and about

I tackled another adventure today, going somewhere I had only been once before
However this time I used public transportation and my great memory oh and google maps

Thank the good Lord for Google maps, it helped me get on the right bus and wait at the right stop, ahhhhhmazing....

All in a successful day out.
Stay Tuned!!
