113/365 Alex has a job

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while may remember that back in March Alex decided to leave university after 18 months into a 3 year course, as he just wasn't happy.
Well since then, after taking a couple of weeks to come to terms with his new situation, he has been job hunting. He has applied for loads and loads of vacancies, in almost all cases he hasn't even had the courtesy of an acknowledgement.
Now, at long last, not only did he get an acknowledgement of application, followed by an interview, but he has got a job!!! WOOOOO HOOOO.
He started work on Monday at Halfords in Bristol, which he himself has said is a lovely place to work for a young single man who is struggling to keep his little car on the road. Well done Alex, and good luck.
As I mentioned yesterday, it was Oliver's 20th birthday. He fully intends to have a big, boozy, boisterous party, but not until he goes back to Bournemouth next week. So in the mean time we gave him a nice meal at home, and shared a couple of bottles of wine. Alex was able to join us, so here we are, Alex on the left, myself in the middle, Oliver on the right and Rog behind the camera for a change.

Congrats to both Alex for getting a job in these difficult times, and to Oli for reaching the grand old age of 20! :)
