The many pieces that were up in the air on Monday have started to fall into place and our lives will definitely change in April (blimey, this is sounding like some astrology back page of a trashy magazine kind of thing. ah well).

Janey has been offered a job at the Open University business school in Oxford, having blinded the interview panel with her skill, intelligence, project management experience and general groovyness. So we need to be moving out of Birmingham in the next five weeks. Which is nice. Nine years after noticing the best thing about Birmingham are the exits, I’m finally using one and closing the door on a chapter of my life. Congrats Janey - I know you floored them with much cuteness, George and stuff!
