This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

When I got engaged to my wife,
back in 2003 I decided that I'd had enough of a) commuting from Rugby to London every day and b) sales.

So I decided to look for a new job - something like an IT Trainer perhaps. So I went for a job as an IT Trainer at Kettering Hospital.

And got it! Surprised myself - I thought I'd done alright in the interview but was bound to lose out to someone with more experience.

Then 10 months later a vacancy appeared at Northampton Hospital - same job, 50% more money.

So I decided to go for it.

And got it! Surprised myself again.

To top all that off, if I'd still been working at my old job in London, I'd probably have been walking past that bus when it blew up on the 7th of July too...
