First Post

Well, here is the first post of my blog. I decided to start this blog for a few reasons...I thought it would be a good way of keeping family and friends up to date with goings on in my new home town of Brighton, I can post pictures and so on, and also it will help me a bit more in my understanding of all things online - pretty important for my new job. [There my first bit of HTML!] In fact a lot of my colleagues have blogs and I think its a fun thing to do! Plus its about time I caught up with cyberspace, after being locked away in the luddite music industry for so long. More about that later I suppose. Suffice to say I have been living in Brighton for 5 weeks now and am loving every moment of it.

I also wonder exactly what sort of postings should go on these blogs, I confess to not having actually read that many. I think simple is best, so I'll kick off with the BEST thing about living in Brighton so is of course the SEA!

So above is a picture of what is now my commute to work, it certainly beats battling buses around the Hammersmith broadway! Nothing like a cycle ride in the sunshine and some sea air in the morning to start the day. At the end of this bit of the Hove seafront there is a cafe on the beach where I often stop, sit down and stare at the sea, have a coffee before work - and end up thinking I must be on holiday or something. [Friends tell me that even after living in Brighton for 2 years they still think they are on holiday!]. Long may that feeling last I say.

And of course probably the most famous aspect of Brighton is the pier - a few weeks ago it was my nephews birthday and he decided of all things he would like to do is to spend it on the pier - and those scary rides. Pretty good fun though if you are 11!! And a really good tip which a local barber gave me turned out to be true - the best fish and chips in Brighton are on the pier [halfway up, not the dodgy ones at the entrance]. Actually, having not tasted any other fish and chips in Brighton I'm not exactly qualified to say that..but they were pretty good I have to say.

Right, busy day tomorrow, so I am going to try to work out now how to actually post this to the web..and then post some more news and useless information soon!
