My last project at the BBC is finished, as is the related contract. My worldly possessions are in boxes and being shipped. The lease on my London flat has ended. A goodbye party (how unlike me!) was had. I’m now at my parents, sleeping, reading, playing with the dogs, resting.
I don’t think I’ll miss London very much (too big and busy, too expensive, takes too long to get out of), but I will definitely miss all the people a lot. Those I worked with and those I partied with, but especially those I just plain hung out with. I think my fondest memories will be of having a beer in the park on a sunny afternoon, or having fancy lunch at a notting hill restaurant, or strolling along south bank amidst the tourists.
What’s next? I have my sights set on Amsterdam, to work and maybe to live. I’m looking at buying a car which I’ve actually never done before. I’m also looking for interesting work. Talking to a few interesting folks already, it seems like Amsterdam is filled with startups these days 🙂
