Back to the North

[24/25th October 2006]
On Tuesday and Wednesday I went back to the Milan area to visit some suppliers and technically starting the job that I am allegedly paid to do (I say allegedly because no invoice has been paid yet...).
The visits were quite interesting, I managed to see a lot of people that I know, plus I went back to my late employer, this time as a client. It was great to see all the friends that I have left there!
On a positive not I half turned down a job that was offered me by one of these mills that I visited. They wanted me to work for them, but that would mean moving again in the area and I really don't want to ear anything from that side...
Shame that they are not near Florence because they were offering me a starting salary of 4,500 Euro (3000 pounds more or less) plus benefits...
If I had that offer last year I would have probably gone for it, now, I have a new adventure to fight for... I didn't close the door though, I told the owner that I am flattered about this offer (it's one of the biggest companies in Italy, a world leader in very expensive fabrics and they also have shops for final goods), and that it would have been better to see each other in July next year when things about my new job are clearer.
Typical, isn't it? Just when you've gone and moved away again, something like this turns up! Well at least the door isn't firmly closed yet...

It's quite classical... But on a second thought I think I am better off this way. The guy who owns that company is known to be a complete nutcase, and life wouldn't have been easy with him anyhow... On the other side its a lot of money and you never know, I might be able to tame him!
