The last week

Quite an eventful week, mostly because of changes at work. I have now moved down to the trading desk, where I am spending the next two weeks finishing some stuff for the euro rates desk, before moving to the sterling swaps desk to learn the gilts business. One very nice side effect of moving onto the desk is that the support is so much better: within half an hour of my computer arriving down there, it had twice as much memory and three screens. Next week I should get my second machine, and hopefully another set of three screens to go with it.

On Thursday we went out for dinner with Andrew to celebrate his birthday at the “Texas Embassy”: He gave me a CD of photos, which include some from our London Eye trip so I’ll post those tomorrow.
