New Year, New Money Pits

I've decided to start looking for a new job in the New Year since by my reckoning it will take 6-9 months to find something, which could mean being trapped in Pagan... sorry... Leicester for a further year if I faff. I've also decided to leave Casa Al as it is becoming increasingly small for my liking owing to the vast amounts of books and comics that seem to be taking over my room. So trying to juggle these things is becoming a bit of a headache. I really need to focus on one or the other but I've seen 2 jobs that look absolutely perfect, one of which is even back in old St. Andrews and offers a lot more cash to do basically what I do at the moment.

I've also had to insure my Stu Mobile again. Last year's insurance was £360. Since then I've reached the lofty age of 25 (soon to be 26 in over a month), had 0 accidents, made 0 claims and... moved to an LE4 postcode in Leicester. So now with 3 year's no claims bonus my new premium with the same company, car and driver is...

£560?!

My new motto - Leicester: It wants to be London, but without all the good stuff. Other than that, not really been up to much other than working and keeping my housemate up at 10pm with the sound of my late-night ironing.

Do my eyes deceive me? I fancied there was a large rant and diatribe on this blog yesterday. I just popped on to read it again as it really was most enjoyable, to discover it has disappeared.

Probably a wise move to remove it -but chin up anyway Stu! I think you've got a bout of the January blues. Soon be your birthday - I will send you some cheap plastic crap as always, which will surely cheer you up.

Yeah, suffice it to say this is not the blog entitled "Weird and Frankly Scary Rants of Stuart Kerrigan". :)
