It took 2 1/2 times the picture....

I think I actually tried 147 ways to get a job using abilities that some would consider to be unnatural....

....But after 75 days I have FINALLY landed an offer of a contract. It means work and back to the treadmill but at least the wolf can be safely kept from the door!

I start on Monday as well.

All I need now is a successful evening at the club (where my pair of Bf 109 Fs are taking to the skies) and for Chelsea to beat Bayern Munich on Saturday and life will be even more fine and dandy!

Congrats on the job and enjoy the game.... As for Chelsea, two out of three ain't bad.

Huzzah! Congratulations are in order. Receiving a paycheck is always better than not receiving one.

El Grego said...

Jim Duncan Wargamer said...

Congratulations mate, enjoy your last few days of being at a loose end, not having to commute and slothing around in scungy clothes! :-)

Hope it goes well for you I know how disconcerting it can be to be out of work and the relief to get back into it

Congratulations! Great news!

Gentlemen, one and all,

Many thanks for the kind words and comments - they are very much appreciated.

For me the worse thing about the whole unemployed situation is the continual uncertainty and the endless round of searching, phone calls and emails. Financially we pretty well set up to weather this eventuality in the short term but obviously it is far better to be 'in it' rather than 'out of it'.

On the DIY front much has been tackled as has much on the gaming side so the enforced lay off has been constructively spent for the most part.

All the best and many thanks once again,
