.... a job based mostly in Lamberhurst does have certain logistical complications. It could, in theory, be commuted. Train in and out of London via London Bridge, about 2 hours 20 min, then pick up the car I'd left in Tunbridge Wells and drive the rest of the way (16 minutes, says Google Maps). I'd be getting the 5:45 from Biggleswade, Dave could drop me at the station on his way to work when he was on early shift. I'd get home about 8pm. £45 train fare, before we look into things like season tickets.
Or, I could drive the whole way: here Google Maps says about 2 hours, but fails to notice that we're talking about the M25 in rush hour. 100 miles each way, my car does about 50 to the gallon, 4 gallons a day... 18 litres, or thereabouts.... let's say £1.20 a litre because I'm feeling pesimistic... a bit over £20 on diesel.
Or, we could relocate. That isn't a cheap area to buy in, IIRC :(
Edit: I didn't RC. Just looked it up using this site
and found several places bigger than what we've got, and costing less. Hmmm....
And Dave probably wouldn't get a job, not easily. That's more of a problem.
Oh well, we'll see what they make of the technical test I emailed back earlier today. I had fun doing it, anyway: its good to know I can still dive into "coding coma" when required.
