The house unpacking proceeds well. Hopefully we will finish it all tomorrow night.

It was my first day of the new job today and things went pretty smoothly. All the admin was sorted out in only an hour as the departmental administrator took me on a tour of all the relevant offices to get my staff card, parking permit, payroll, pension etc. After that, I got on with getting quotes, ordering equipment and accessing my budget. We've spent almost £140k on the new lab so it should look nice once all the equipment is in place.

Tomorrow is a group meeting in the morning, then a meeting with the graduate officer so I can find out the protocols of interviewing prospective PhD students - not worried about getting a good one as the two people who have got in touch so far both have predicted firsts. Clearly the advert I wrote was appealing..after that its a departmental meeting. I spent a while reading the huge briefing document, so I'm not expecting it to be massively exciting!

Manningtree seems pleasant enough. Not done a great deal here so far but will try out the leisure centre tomorrow maybe.
