Well I took the step of becoming self-employed and doing contract work; so now I just do consultancy for a particular company for a fixed period of time; I'm committed to them for as long as the contract lasts, and can choose to accept or reject an extension at the end of that time. To me that's a much more clear-cut way of doing things; no having to suck up to the boss for a pay rise or whatever, and I'm a lot more isolated from a load of the internal politics too!
Oh, you are just like me then! lol! I like to read and don't post much either. Just the odd thing. Yep, life's OK, granddaughter growing up fast. She's 15 weeks now and I can't get enough of her!! Glad you are OK.
