Moving on (but not from loving a good day at the seaside)

Caught up on not one but two classic films this week, When Harry Met Sally and Alien, and enjoyed them both as much as their reputations would suggest I should! Honestly, though, sometimes I feel that life is just a never-ending game of whack-a-mole where you’re forever trying to fix the most glaring holes in your pop culture awareness…

Anyway, I have an announcement of sorts! In a week’s time I will be starting a three month traineeship at Groupon – in a proper office with chairs and desks and actual people and everything! Don’t ask me too many questions, though, because (a) I don’t want to turn my entire life into a job interview and (b) I don’t imagine I’ll be discussing it on my blog very much. But rest assured that I’m looking forward to it, and grateful so far to be getting some variety in work rather than charging down a single graduate route straight away. So, hurrah! Rather neatly, Melissa took Grace and I out for lunch last week as well to celebrate coming to the end of writing School Wars. Rest assured I will plug it mercilessly when it comes out later this year (Septemberish?) but in the meantime here’s a nice photo of us looking pleased with ourselves:

Oh, and last Saturday we had a rather awesome and sweet day at the seaside, Clacton style! Seriously: all those adverts featuring happy bland families on the beach with young children are totally missing the mark, because it’s definitely more fun when you’re all old enough to appreciate the charm of the pier properly. Sea swimming, sandcastle building, dodgem crashing – not to mention skin burning – and all home in time for Doctor Who to boot. Although, as you might guess, some of us had been giving that more than a bit of thought all day…

On reflection, ‘hello sweetie’ would have been cleverer
