Pizza, Pasta e dei Rifiuti Radioattvi - August 6, 2012

Having spent the last month zooming around the remote Italian countryside on my trusty bike Fred, sampling plenty of pizza, all flavours of gelato, spritz, prosecco and any aperitivo that gets in my way, I can safely say……I could easily get used to life here.

6 degrees of separation… - March 19, 2012

For those not familiar with this theory, the idea is by using 6 connections (friend of a friend and so on) you could connect yourself with anyone in the world! As you may have picked up about nucleargraduates is that there are several secondments, and I’m approaching the time where I’m searching for new opportunities [...]

Decommissioning in North Wales - March 1, 2011

Being based at Trawsfynydd in Snowdonia has certainly been different! Early morning commuting can sometimes be tricky……. I’m currently working as part of the engineering team at Trawsfynydd Decommissioning Site and the work has been fast paced from the off – a result of the current dates for the site to enter ‘care and maintenance‘ as [...]

Bonne Année/Happy New Year! - January 26, 2011

 Wow the last month has flown past! Well maybe not flown… possibly more like a fast walk, oh, or an amble? Hm, that doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it?!       Well I suppose I should share with you what I’ve been up to for the last month…what was that…”Oh! Yes [...]
