New job, new dawn...

Started the new job on Wednesday morning. Not too hectic at the moment but I'm expecting the workload to rise significantly next week. Nothing I won't be able to handle though. 'Hot-desking' at the moment, waiting for a desk to become available for me, once I've a desk of my own I'll buy a potted plant and bring in some photographs etc.

Working as a contractor is quite the experience. I've been blogging about it over at The Sole Trader Blog. Not as difficult as I had expected. A little more thought needs to go into it than working as a PAYE employee but it's well worth it.

Thinking I'll have to start investing in property and shares soon enough. Considering pensions at the moment also. I reckon these are things that are probably better dealt with sooner rather than later. A decent stock and property portfolio could make me more money than annual salary in the future...

Sorting out the provisional license at the moment too. Oasis is a great online resource, you can even request the forms to be posted out to you online here...

...and that
