I'm relaxing after my second day at my new job. It's exhausting meeting loads of new people and trying to absorb loads of new information! But I must say the people all seem very nice. The office I work in has windows on two sides with loads of trees and parkland outside and I have been promised a personal tour of the mansion house very soon!
The dining hall (and I do mean "hall" as in panelled walls with a high vaulted ceiling and oil paintings of "important" people dotted around), serves excellent subsidised meals at lunchtime. A hot meal costs £1.90 (about $2.80). Which compares very well with my previous employers' pretty mediocre canteen food which generally cost from £3.50 to £5 ($5.25 - $7.50). Today, I had breadcrumbed baked fillet of salmon, with green beans, carrots and gorgeous herb-buttered new potatoes.
Of course this all means I am doing no cooking in the evening!
