There have been many changes since I posted here regularly. I worked at a bank in London till mid-2011, then worked for a different part of the same bank till later in 2011 but in Edinburgh, then for a Spanish bank till the end of last April and I'm now back with the same bank I was with from 2007 to 2011, but in a different part of the bank and a different part of London.

If you don't recall seeing me here before, welcome! If you do, welcome back. I haven't been posting, but I have read my friends' page LJ almost every day, though it seems to be more and more RSS feeds and fewer and fewer people.
