On the horizon

Anybody knows this view and where it was taken from?

  • I got a bill via email from my attorney last week and it looks like they are finalizing the transaction. It has been a long time coming, I've been waiting about four months now and it looks like I should be able to move in to the new apartment next month. Anyway the bill was fat. 1/2 stamp duty, 1/2 registration fees, my lawyers fees and other misc fees left my once health bank account empty. Seriously I could use the closing costs to purchase a car, this money would have been so much better else where. That is water under the bridge for now and I am just eagerly waiting to get my keys and tell my landlady to chuck it.
  • Who remembers when I told my boss I wanted his job? Well it is clear that he isn't going anywhere soon but recently other possibilities have presented themselves. Yesterday my boss and my boss' boss' boss[big boss] were casually talking about the lack of a supervisor for the team in Barbados. The big boss proposed that I go there and take that role and I instantly told him sure I would be interested at which point in time he pointed out that he was dead serious and I confirmed that I was up for the challenge. It would be interesting if I can get it, the job will have to be posted and I would have to beat all other candidates in Barbados who may apply for it as they would get preference but at least I know the people who are making the decisions already think that I am capable.
  • I have to go to work later, starting at midnight. The last time this work was attempted, the vendor's engineers corrupted our database and what was to be three hours of work turned into eight. This is not going to work tonight as I have to wake up tomorrow at 6am to head to the airport for the first flight. I hate travelling when I'm not well rested but I was requested to come in at the last minute and I have some fat bills to be payed. Let us hope that all goes well and I can be in and out in 30 minutes lol.
Definitely interesting times ahead. Time to go pack.

I say it is a picture of Long Mountain (or whatever they call that little hill by Mona Dam) all the way up to the quarry by August Town. I say the picture was taken from the hills above Havendale, or from Red Hills or from Stony Hill, in that order of preference... let me know.

Good luck on the job, congrats on the apartment.

Looks like you took this pic somewhere in the red hills area. As MB mentioned, I too can see long mountain on the left.

Going to Barbados might be a nice experience, all the best with that and hopefully it means much more money to replenish your finances. My section is going through a lot of changes to, including a physical move.

I see that view at least three times a week. My guess is Mountain Spring, up from Widcombe.

Adrian said...

yup Mountain Spring is correct.. feel free to collect your prize any time before 16/05/09. Looks like I cross paths every now and then with my local blog readers.

@ CP: the little one, I was surprised nobody else pointed that out, not even my fambily. I would have to figure that out if it ever came to happen.

Gussie said...

Something very fishy about that deadline date to collect the prize.

Crankyputz said...
