Yesterday I did my first day of volunteering. I wasn't that sure what to expect. I had done all the training but of course it's never quite the same as the real thing. I am working from the 19th floor of an office block in Canary Wharf. The views were amazing as was the weather. My role involves interviewing prospective volunteers for the Olympics. The interviews should take 15 minutes as we ask each candidate the same questions and then after the interview we mark their answers from 1 to 5. It was fascinating to meet some of the people who are volunteering. I suppose I didn't expect to be meeting such high fliers - such is the pull of the Olympics.
Welcome to my blog
This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!
