Well bloody hell doesn’t time fly. I will make an attempt to update any poor soul who is interested in what I have been upto. So here goes. I left BG in Nov 2011 due to the financial crisis (my money ran out – not good for someone claiming to be nearly self sufficient) I have since then been back in the UK (It hurts lots – it is even worse than I remember it when I left in 2008) It took me a while to find gainful employment but I am now back in the rat race and saving pennies as if they are going to go out of circulation in the next few weeks.
I got a job working on databases, and after 9 months of being in the job the company decided it would be best if the headquarters was actually in Cyprus (12.5% corporation tax) rather than the UK (20% corporation tax) purely for fun of it. (I am all for paying as little tax as possible). So I enquired if it would be possible to re-loacte to the new headquarters and they said YAY! 🙂
So now I find myself living and working in Nicosia. Still saving as much as possible to return to BG. I am thinking of asking if they would let me work from there, I see no reason why not. I have proven that I am capabale of working in Cyprus so what difference would BG make same timezone.
This blog may make diversions into Cyprus life for a while, wish me luck as I plant the seeds with bosses, as too how I will be much more productive in BG.
Anyone still there?
