My time in Scotland is imminently at an end and I have had a few discussions about jobs in the Sand Pit, the most promising of which is in Kuwait.

Thanks for the heads up!

By the way, I won't be writing any shite books about it this time. I might bring my camera.

Offer received. I have to deliberate and discuss with my family, but I could well be heading back to the Sand Pit within the next 2 months.

Yes, you and Meow were brilliant. That little misunderstanding has long been cleared up, but let's just say a certain bank won't be enjoying my custom this time around.

Hopefully I won't be bothering you this time!

I've accepted the offer and will be coming out in early May, all being well. I could be in the UAE for a few weeks initially.
