Taunton is not what I expected. I was expecting this little town full of country folk. I got a real cheap nfl jerseys eye opener. The shops here are great, lots of labels I recognize and the fashion is upbeat and citified for the most. Big plus they have a LUSH shop, one of my why favorites.

Folk here are as trendy and upbeat as anywhere else, well maybe not London but you get my drift… Yes there are the green wellies but they wholesale mlb jerseys are practical for the area. I have a pair with cow prints on – got them for the last festival I went to, going to get a bit more use now I think! The history acabamento of Taunton goes back over a 1.000 years.

So why Somerset?

Hi there, my name is Sophie and I am an east ender, born and bred.  Love the wholesale jerseys city life, the hustle, the bustle, THE SHOPS! I like meeting my mates for a wander round the market and a few glasses of wine after.  Being in London is being central to everything important in my life but it is also expensive, stressful cheap jerseys and tiring – travelling by tube is not the most pleasant of experiences especially at rush time.

Now there are a lot of pluses with this job, increased salary, relocation monies To and most of all Pete really wanting to do this particular job. Taking this opportunity also meant I did not need to work full time.
