May is going to be an exciting fun-packed month with lots of new starts, I will be starting my new job at BMI Healthcare after the bank holiday weekend, will let you know how that goes in due course. We have a wedding of a very good friend from university days on the Isle of Wight in mid-May and some family visiting from Australia at the end of the month to look forward to. In addition to that, there is plenty going on in and around Enfield and London that we are hoping to sample a little bit of at weekends and over the two luxurious bank holiday weekends that May has to offer.
