Yippe...I gotta job

As some of you may know I used to have a shop near the cathedral here in Lincoln,on,Steep hill ! Now for those of you that have been to Lincoln you know what I mean.Steep or what.had to give it up because poor old me couldn't cope anymore with the hill.spent more time struggling to breath than doing what I should've been doing.But I now have work... Now before you all get excited and back slapping,it s voluntary,couple days a week,doing admin in a disability centre.I can do that,! not too strenuous and gives me back a bit of self respect..... I Got A Job :) :)

Yes I love it there too especially the cathedral area. Used to go to the christmas market did not make it this time and last year I think it was the weather caused it to be cancelled. Is the cheese cafe still at steep Hill? Julie x x

Congratulations on the job. The good thing about it being voluntary is the flexibility if you need to change days for any reason.

Jambo, I recall that steep hill. My sister was over from the United States. My husband parked the car at the bottom of that steep hill. We climbed with difficulty, to find a car park at the top. My sister has never forgiven us (smiley) And Harry Secombe was recording for a tv show at the top. Those were the days. All the best with your job. Love Annieseed xx

Congratulations Jambo. I remember Steep Hill we went to Lincoln with a coach party fortunately the driver took pity on us all and dropped us by the cathedral never had to try the hill thank god. I would have still been there I will raise a glass to you later on to wish you luck with your new job.

I know the steephill. That part of Lincoln is lovely with the Catherdral and Castle. I might be able to climb the steephill now but would need about 10 stops before I got to the top! Congrats on job, its nice to feel that you are doing something useful.

I know how that feels,used to get so breathless after 10 steps,some days had to ask wife to go get the car cos I just couldn't do it.it was areal slog. X

I know it too. It is steep, I don't think I could do it now unless I stopped every few yards. It's a lovely city though. I'm sad to hear some of those shops are gone.

It's such a shame,its a lovely atmosphere there,but what with the recession and everything it' seems to have lost its appeal. Just don't get the tourism now :( xx

Good on you.
