Hurrah!

My DH has been chasing a UK law contract for four years, its been really tough, he's had a couple of nearlies, and an offer from a firm he decided was not for him and took the decision not to accept (considered madness in the current market in UK because there are WAY too many candiadates for openings and this was a top UK firm, but UK law, not much international)

but today he has been offered a 2008 start by his FIRST VCHOICE FIRM!

I'm so excited I can't even type properly, my hands are shaking so much! Its so unbelievable, his FIRST CHOICE FIRM!

There is no way on earth I'm cooking tonight!

Thank you!

We are really hoping that the future finanacial increase in our household will enable us to give more back to the world. It'll be a short period of pay cut when he's a UK trainee, but, then it will rapidly be much, much easier and we hope to start being able to pay the world back for the goodness we have been granted from it.

Wow great news, lulu. Now you can put your worries on the shelf. Hope you and your DH have a nice evening out to celebrate. Just think, we're already into the 5th month of 2007. 2008 will be here before you know it!!
