Walk to work

I can't believe it - I'm well over half way through my Paris secondment and today I was informed that for my last seat I have been given my department of choice: derivatives regulatory back in the London office. I don't know much about the work yet but I know that it will be very interesting, particularly as so many people blame the current crisis on the lack of regulation in the financial markets. I'm excited! Sometimes I wish I could spend my days cooking and crafting and writing, but there are others on which I'm happy to know about finance, to be exposed to such interesting work and clients. It really is a privilege.

I can't believe that so soon I will be fully qualified. It has been a long long road, and yet so short in the context of a lifetime's career!

I resolve to savour my last few months here in Paris because I haven't enjoyed it as much as I should have. And yet I still have so many photos to share with you! The first of the bunch are of the view I see on my way to work. It's a lovely walk from the metro, and it starts with a flower shop (and we all know how much I love those!).

The last photo is of my new shoes! They are totally silly, but I think they're fabulous. And a fabulous pair of shoes always make the walk to work that much nicer!
