Up North

As luck would have it, I’ve been offered two contracts at once. One is in Leicester and the other in Stafford. To help decide which one to choose, we decided to drive up north and take a look around the areas.

It took about 2 hours to get to Leicester. We drove around the city centre and ring road to get a feel for what accommodation may be like. We then went looking for the actual area the work would be. It turned out this was about a 30 minute drive in horrible traffic – not too enticing.

Next stop, Stafford. Stafford is a small town, with some character. We walked through the town centre / high street looking at the shops and estate agents. After a bit of looking we found a Café Nero, so we figured it couldn’t be all that bad. We decided that this was the job to take (nb location wasn’t the only reason for decision). So I sat in Café Nero and rang the agents to let them know my decision.

Afterwards we went for a wander around the rest of town and discovered a starbucks – what more could you want.
